Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up March 13th

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, March 13, 2019


Here are a few of the criminal law stories that have recently occurred around the state of Alabama:


- A few weeks ago, a 61-year-old man posing as an Uber driver was pulled over by a Tuscaloosa County sheriff’s deputy in the early morning hour of 2:30 a.m. When the officer approached the vehicle, he noticed an unconscious college-aged female in the backseat. The suspect, Tommy Wayne Beard, then stated that he was an Uber driver and that he was taking the "intoxicated" passenger back to her residence. When investigators spoke with the passenger, they learned that she was a 22-year-old UA student who lived near the campus. However, she said that she did not remember getting into the car with Beard and only could remember leaving a downtown Tuscaloosa bar. Beard later confessed that he was not an official Uber driver, but that he placed the sticker on his 2012 black Ford Taurus so he could pick people up and give them rides. Upon looking on Beard's cell phone, they discovered photographs of college-aged females that appeared to be unconscious while they were in the backseat of his vehicle in his cell phone, something to which Beard admitted. This past Friday, Beard has been charged with first-degree kidnapping and was booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $45,000 bond.


- The Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team reported that 53-year-old Gregory Bohannon and his wife, 58-year-old Teresea Bohannon, were arrested last Monday after they were discovered in a semitrailer with over four kilograms of cocaine, 600 pounds of marijuana and $20,000 in cash. Days later, three male suspects, Oronda Oberry, Oronda Hamilton and Eric Maxwell, were stopped in a car with over 3,400 ecstasy pills inside with an estimated street value of $68,000.
