Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up January 31, 2019

J.D. Lloyd - Thursday, January 31, 2019

 


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

 

 

 

- A teen daughter is severely injured after her mother allegedly attacked her with a machete at their Pinson home on Monday afternoon. When Jefferson County sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the scene, they discovered the 18-year-old victim with severe wounds to her arms, hands and skull; authorities reported that her hand was almost severed. The deputies say the incident occurred over money that the mother, 49-year -old Corina D’Andrea, believed the daughter had taken from her. The victim was taken to UAB Hospital’s Trauma Center and is in critical, but stable condition. D'Andrea is charged with first-degree domestic violence and attempted murder; she is being held in the Jefferson County Jail on a $90,000 bond.

 

 

- Tuscaloosa police have charged five suspects with a robbery that occurred a Chuy's on Monday night. The suspects allegedly entered the restaurant, fired shots in the air and proceeded to take the cash register, which held about $2,000. The suspects then fled the scene with four being captured immediately and the fifth turning himself in the next afternoon. Officers were able to recover the money as well as a shotgun. The suspects include Senica Francis Harris, 34, of Cottondale; Kardell Varshae Doss, 25, of Tuscaloosa; and Michael Terrell Martin, also 25 and of Tuscaloosa; 21-year-old Jamarcus Kacey Woodard, of Tuscaloosa and an unnamed juvenile.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up January 18th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, January 18, 2019

 


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

 

 

- This past Wednesday afternoon, police took an intoxicated Bessemer man into custody after he allegedly broke into a Center Point home and then fled into a wooded area behind Center Point Elementary School. An off-duty officer called the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and said he witnessed Whitney Williams trying to break into a home. When the suspect realized he had been noticed, he ran into the woods carrying items with him. The school was placed on lockdown, and several deputies and the school resource officer helped bring Williams into custody. They did not see any of the items he had allegedly been carrying, but Williams, a "known drug user and suspect in other crimes" according to police, was visibly intoxicated. Williams was charged with public intoxication and criminal trespassing. 

 

- Selma police are currently looking for a male suspect they say accidentally discharged his firearm while trying to rob a local store. The man had a skull cap covering his face as he entered the store, grabbed some beer from the alcohol section and brandished his gun in front of the clerk. According to police, the gun went off and fired into the beer cases, though no injuries were reported. The suspect has been compared to a "bumbling Barney Fife" by Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson. 

 

- A 26-year-old Mobile man was arrested this past Thursday after allegedly making more than 20 false calls reporting apartment fires and mass shootings to a local apartment complex. David Kass faces two counts of terroristic threats and seven misdemeanor charges of rendering false calls.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up January 11th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, January 11, 2019

 


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

 

 

 

- According to authorities, four masked men allegedly stole $135,000 worth of jewelry from Huntsville's Loring & Co. in less than a minute last Saturday afternoon. The suspects (25-year-old Tre Michael Smith, 22-year-old Tyrus Rashad Ray, 25-year-old Alexander Langford and 33-year-old Nakeel Darrel Davis) walked into the store half an hour before close with one suspect carrying a gun and another carrying a hammer. The men fled with multiple Rolex watches and were caught later that day outside of Atlanta. The suspects are all being charged with first-degree robbery - a Felony A charge which could mean up to life in prison if convicted - and the police expect the four men will face federal charges as well.

 

 

- An argument last weekend has left one north Alabama man dead and another being held on a murder charge in the Franklin County jail. According to police, 63-year-old Jerry Ronald Mills and 39-year-old Jason Floyd Baker were roommates in the Blue Springs Community. Around 10:30 a.m. last Sunday, Baker was fatally shot. Police believe an argument between the two regarding money led to the morning's deadly events.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up January 4th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, January 04, 2019

 

 


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

 

 

- A 33-year-old man who allegedly shot multiple rounds from an AK-47 outside a Huntsville nightclub was recently released from Madison County Jail. According to a police report, the suspect, Samuel Demario Williams, had been at the 3208 nightclub this past Monday and had been sent away from the club after getting in an altercation with another patron. He then retrieved the weapon from a nearby vehicle and began firing as he walked back to the club. Police say a security guard shot Williams in the thigh, but no other injuries were reported. Rapper Boosie had been set to perform at the club and described the scene of patrons fleeing for safety as the "Wild Wild West" in a video posted to his Instagram feed. Williams has been charged with misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment and menacing, plus felony charges of shooting into an occupied vehicle and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

 

 

- Police are looking for two suspects who were allegedly wearing Scream masks when they shot a man in North Huntsville on Thursday morning. The 33-year-old man, who received gunshot injuries not considered life-threatening, said he did not know his attackers. According to the victim, the two gunmen walked up to him, shouted obscenities at him and then shot him before walking away. The masks are similar to the "Ghostface" disguise found in the 1996 film.
