Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up November 9th, 2018

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, November 09, 2018


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


- This Halloween brought no treats for an Auburn teen who allegedly punched an 18-year-old male last Wednesday night/early Thursday morning. The suspect, 19-year-old John David Wood, was apparently wearing a costume when he punched the victim in the face as he was coming down West Magnolia Avenue. Auburn police responded around 4:30 a.m. According to police, the victim was treated for serious injuries. Wood was arrested, charged with second-degree assault and booked into the Lee County Jail on a $25,000 bond. 



- A convicted serial robber on the run has allegedly cut off his electronic monitoring device while on probation from federal prison and is now suspected of a bank holdup in Montgomery that occurred this past Wednesday as well as an October heist in Hoover. According to Montgomery police, 60-year-old Myron William Ernst (a South Carolina resident) walked into the Regions Bank on Atlanta Highway around 11 a.m. and presented a threatening note demanding money. He then fled on foot. Ernst was also identified as the suspect of a October 22nd holdup at the Regions Bank on Montgomery Highway. Like the Montgomery holdup, Ernst entered the branch around 11:18 a.m., presented the note to the teller (while implying he had a gun), took an undisclosed amount of money and fled on foot. Police issued a warrant for his arrest on October 23rd. Ernst had pled guilty in 2010 to heists in Charleston, Orange Park, Fla., Huntsville and Montgomery, Mobile and Panama City. He received a 11 year, five-month sentence, but was released at the end of this past August on a three-year probation. In addition to the probation, he was only allowed to leave his home between the hours of 4:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. to go to work. Police determined that he cut off his electronic device on September 26th after he was fired from Origin Point Brands on September 21st.
