Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up May 31st, 2018

J.D. Lloyd - Thursday, May 31, 2018

 


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

 

 

 

- Piedmont police are on the lookout for a male suspect who allegedly robbed a convenience store late last Friday night. Not too unique of a case, except this - what appears to be - 5-foot-ten, 210-pound white man was wearing a gorilla mask, dark-colored shorts and a green sweatshirt while he performed the crime. The robbery occurred at the Discount Food Mart with witnesses telling police that the suspect had a handgun and fled the scene with some cash. He was last seen running south on Anniston Avenue, but police were unsure of whether or not he got into a vehicle.

 

 

- Police have filed formal charges against 26-year-old Christopher Rian McGhee who allegedly forced two young children into a bathroom during a home invasion in Tarrant this past Tuesday morning. Tarrant police had received a call from the two children - ages 9 and 10 - who said they were hiding in a bathroom after a gunman had broken into their house and was still there. While the dispatcher kept the older child on the line, police headed to the house and set up a perimeter. Officers forced entry into their home and discovered the suspect a few hours later after a police K-9 sniffed him out in a crawl space. McGhee was taken into custody, treated at a hospital for a bite from the dog and then taken to police headquarters and then Tarrant City Jail. His charges included first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, unlawful possession of marijuana, illegal possession of a credit or debit card and possession of burglary tools. He will be held in the Jefferson County Jail on bonds totaling $785,000.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up May 25th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, May 25, 2018

 


 

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

 

 

 

- Two sixteen-year-olds were arrested Monday after allegedly robbing a Hoover pizza delivery driver at gunpoint that afternoon. To heighten the tension, they used a BB gun that was a replica of an assault rifle with authorities saying it bore a striking resemblance to a Robinson Armament XCR short-barreled rifle. Hoover police Capt. Gregg Rector stated that the robbery effort only netted the suspect $15 in cash. After the robbery, the suspects fled on foot, the victim called 911 and officers were able to locate the two males as well as the BB gun replica of an assault rifle in a backpack belonging to one of the teens. Police charged Christopher Deon Walton and An'ton Je'horma Lewis as adults with first-degree robbery. They are in the process of being transferred from the Hoover City Jail to the Jefferson County Jail where they will be held on $11,000 bond each.

 

- Jefferson County sheriff's officials were able to make an easy arrest late Wednesday when a car break-in suspect drove up to the courthouse on an unrelated matter just moments after warrants were issued against him. The suspect, 30-year-old Caleb Gossett, had allegedly broken into three cars at the Pinson home of Jerrica Graves on Sunday morning. After Gossett fled in a green Chevrolet Z-71 pickup truck, Graves followed him. Gossett then fired shots from a handgun and Graves soon stopped following him and went home where she discovered that a handgun, cash and a baby stroller had been stolen from one of the vehicles. Graves posted surveillance photos of Gossett on Facebook. The Jefferson County Burglary Detail was assigned the case and soon discovered that the aforementioned green pickup truck had been reported stolen. When they contacted the owner of the vehicle, he said "he was unaware that the truck had been reported stolen and that he had not recovered it." He then told deputies that his daughter and her boyfriend - now identified as Caleb Gossett - usually drove the truck. On Wednesday, deputies acquired warrants charging Gossett with three counts of unlawful breaking and entering a vehicle, and one count each of theft of second-degree property, third-degree theft of property, and being a felon in possession of a firearm. As they exited the courthouse, they saw Gossett - who had driven his girlfriend to the courthouse on an unrelated charge - pull up to the curb. He was immediately arrested and walked into the Jefferson County Jail where he remains with bonds totaling $300,000.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up May 18th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, May 18, 2018

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

 

 

 

- Dothan police arrested a Birmingham man early Tuesday morning after responding to calls about a possible kidnapping at the Flying J Truck Stop on Ross Clark Circle and an elderly woman being locked in the back of a truck in the parking lot. When officers got to the scene and found the Penske truck belonging to the suspect, 43-year-old Jeffery Eric Seay. After making contact with Seay, police discovered his mother, 68-year-old Elizabeth Allen, locked in the rear compartment of the truck. Paramedics then treated Allen at the scene for dehydration and other nonthreatening injuries. Seay was taken to the Dothan Police Department for questioning, but though investigators determined that no kidnapping had occurred, Seay was charged with second-degree elderly abuse. However, the investigation is still ongoing with additional charges pending.

 

 

- A lawsuit is alleging that Madison County physician, Dr. Dr. Celia Lloyd-Turney, is responsible for the wrongful death of 30-year-old Felicia Ann Kelly after prescribing her more than 3,600 pills in under four years. The 14-page lawsuit filed by Maureen Cooper, the administrator of Kelly's estate, says that Kelly died from "mixed drug toxicity," with toxicology tests detecting "fatal levels" of oxycodone and other drugs. Lloyd-Turney was allegedly treating Kelly for anxiety and chronic pain. The total of prescribed pills between 2012 and 2016 was 3,645 and during the final 2 1/2 months of Kelly's life, the lawsuit alleges that the doctor prescribed Kelly at least 582 oxycodone pills. Lloyd-Turner was also writing Kelly other prescriptions during that time for medications such as opioids and benzodiazepines. Turner is accused in the lawsuit of excessive prescribing, failure to properly recognize and treat addiction. Lloyd-Turner's clinic and employer, Choice Medicine, is also named a defendant in the lawsuit and is accused of failing to properly train and supervise its employees.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up May 9th

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, May 09, 2018

 


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

 

 

- Over the last two months (March and April 2018), the U.S. Attorney's Office and ATF joined with local law enforcement in Birmingham, Jefferson County and across north Alabama in an intense effort to bring in violent offenders and take illegal guns off the streets. This past Monday, U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent in Charge Marcus Watson, Acting Birmingham Police Chief Henry Irby III and Jefferson County Sheriff Mike Hale announced that the operation has led to the seizure of 140 guns and federal indictments against 71 people. There was a hyper-focus on illegal firearm charges and to find those who are committing gun crimes throughout Birmingham, Jefferson County and the entire northern district and get them off the streets and in prison for the longest amount of time the law allows. The authorities looked to indict the suspects federally if they were in possession of a firearm used in a drug transaction. According to the officers, there were about 800 to 1,000 prior arrests among the 71 indicted with an average of three felony convictions each.

 

 

- A work truck stolen in Mobile helped lead the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office to a "trove of stolen equipment" in Baldwin County last week. The Mobile Police Department had called the Sheriff's Office on Friday and reported several vehicles had been stolen from a Mobile business and a GPS signal from one of the trucks - a 2013 Chevrolet - that had actually been tracked to a location on Freddie Sellers Road in the Bay Minette area. When they arrived at the scene, authorities also discovered a Kubota excavator, a Caterpillar skid steer loader and a gooseneck trailer. As the deputies were investigating the scene, two men drove up and soon fled, but were soon caught and identified as Freddie Sellers and Greg Holder Jr. aka "Pooh Bear" (who had the key to the stolen Caterpillar in his pocket). Holder was charged with receiving stolen property, and Sellers was charged with possession of a controlled substance, attempt to elude and receiving stolen property.
