Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up May 31st, 2019

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, May 31, 2019


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


- Citizens and authorities were baffled recently when over $1 million in narcotics washed up on the shore over a two-day period in Orange Beach. Investigators say that the first day yielded 21 pounds marijuana and a kilo of cocaine while they discovered an additional 38 kilos of cocaine the following day. Officers believe the drugs came from a vessel because of the watertight packaging.


- Two male suspects who already state face charges in connection with alleged corruption at the Birmingham Water Works Board now have been federally indicted wire fraud charges for allegedly perpetrating a fake invoice scheme against the water works in which they acquired nearly $250,000. The two suspects are Jerry Jones, a former vice president of Birmingham engineering and consulting firm Arcadis, and Mount Vernon Mayor Terry L. Williams. According to authorities, created nine Global Systems International (Williams's company) invoices that falsely states that the company performed work at the Shades Mountain Filter Plant Project as an Arcadis subcontractor. The state charges the two suspect face are in relation to the allegation that the men offered bribes to then-Water Works Board Chairwoman Sherry Lewis in exchange for influencing board actions. While Lewis is still on the board, the charges got Jones fired from his position at Arcadis.
