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.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up November 21st

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, November 21, 2018



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





- A mother (57-year-old Vera James) and her daughter (36-year-old Victoria) face charges of distribution of a controlled substance and selling drugs near to a school. The alleged operation occurred in a home near Foley's The Magnolia School. Police arrested Vera James on Saturday with Victoria being taken into custody on Monday. They are both being held in the Baldwin County Jail with Vera on a $140,000 bond and Victoria on a $60,000 bond.



- A Spanish Fort woman was allegedly murdered on a Royal Princess cruise to Aruba last week. The ship had just left the Everglades when 52-year-old Almarosa Tenorio was allegedly pushed from the 16th floor and then hit a life raft. She had been seen struggling earlier in the evening with an unidentified man. Her husband, Leo, was taken in for questioning in Aruba, but is no longer a suspect. The victim's children appeared on Good Morning America recently and spoke about their mother's odd behavior before she left their home to go on the cruise. Investigators hope to find clues on the ship's CCTV as to what happened.

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.
