Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up November 30th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, November 30, 2018

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



- This past Thursday, Julia Hollis Meyers, a 53-year-old Pell City woman and former Hibbett Sports employee, received a 17-count indictment from a federal grand jury for wire fraud and bank fraud. Authorities stated that during her tenure as a senior lease administrator for Hibbett Sports, Meyers obtained checks for vendor lease payments from the company and deposited the checks into her personal bank account. She also allegedly directed ACH payments from Hibbett Sports to her account with the total amounting to over $200,000. If Meyers is convicted, she could face a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count of wire fraud as well as a maximum penalty of 30 years and a $1 million fine for each count of bank fraud.




- Two men from Texas, German Eduardo Barahoma and Jaime Enrique Cortez, recently were granted bonds of $750,000 each after they had been accused of trafficking $2 million worth of meth through lower Alabama. Initially pulled over for a traffic violation, a drug dog picked up the scent of approximately 80 pounds of methamphetamine in their vehicle. According to a Mobile County prosecutor, the two suspects held jobs in Texas and had no connection to Alabama. Barahoma and Cortez will be arraigned on December 4th.
