As part of the settlement, the DOC agreed to “recognize the Wiccan religion and permit the practice of Wicca in its institutions.” The settlement also requires the ADOC to provide Hornsby with a litany of different items related to the Wiccan religion in order to facilitate his religious practice.
In addition, the settlement requires the ADOC to pay Hornsby $7,500, and it puts the ADOC on the hook for attorney’s fees. Hornsby was represented by Mark Sabel of Sabel & Sabel PC, a Montgomery, Alabama firm.
