TALLADEGA, Ala. – Loaning money to Danny Butler did not always center on regulatory orderscourt fights and alleged forgeries as it has over the last few months.

According to court records, Butler, who is serving a sentence for defrauding the Small Business Administration and kiting checks between West Alabama Bank and Trust and the $602 million, Tuscaloosa-based credit union, made sure executives at both institutions, along with their families and friends, had access to the good things in life, particularly cars at wholesale prices.
