Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up February 22nd

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, February 22, 2019

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


- This past Wednesday, the Cullman County Sheriff's Office announced the arrest of seven people who have been indicted on federal methamphetamine distribution charges. The sheriff's investigators had arrested the suspects in a recent sweep. The three women and four men range in age from 26 to 51 with all being given the charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.



- A 36-year-old convicted felon with a conviction history of second-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and second-degree assault in Shelby County has been charged in the murder of a 73-year-old Hoover man. The suspect, Jackson Bradley Young, was allegedly seen leaving the home of Arthur Grey Till Jr. this past Sunday night. Two female friends found him on Monday afternoon with the door showing no signs of forced entry. When Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences in Montgomery conducted the autopsy determined Till's death was most likely due to foul play. Young was transferred to the Shelby County Jail after initially being held in the Hoover City Jail. He is being held on a $150,000 bond. Other previous charges since 2002 have included drug possession, fraudulent use of a credit or debit car, burglary, theft of property, resisting arrest and burglary.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up February 14th

J.D. Lloyd - Thursday, February 14, 2019


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


- This past Monday, Cullman County Sheriff’s Office announced formal charges against a Bremen man, 36-year-old Matthew Eli Aaron, who allegedly threatened firefighters and tried to assault numerous lawmen during a weekend investigation. When deputies responded to a call Friday night regarding a field that was on fire, Aaron was said to have refused firefighters the opportunity to extinguish the fire while simultaneously threatening the firefighters. Deputies also reported that Aaron fled the scene and had begun to break into several nearby residencies as well as starting a fire in one of the homes. After capturing Aaron after he tried to resist arrest, police took him to a nearby hospital to be treated for drug-related issues and smoke inhalation. Once he is released, he will be held without bond and charged with second-degree arson, two counts of second-degree assault, third-degree burglary and resisting arrest.




- A 19-year-old Marion Junction man, Tyre Webster, surrendered to police late Monday night. He is allegedly part of a trio of suspects (including Tamica Hall and Rayford Mitchell, who both were arrested last week) that allegedly participated in a spree of violent crimes on February 5th. The crime in question was a carjacking of an individual of a local Winn-Dixie that was supposedly carried out with an AK-47. Police were able to arrest Hall and Mitchell that night. However, while Hall was arrested without incident, the officer who pursued and confronted an armed Mitchell fired one shot after the suspect refused to acknowledge verbal commands to surrender or show his hands. Police recovered a 9 mm pistol with a 25-round extended magazine that Mitchell was brandishing. They later recovered an AK-47 in the stolen vehicle. Webster had made several promises to surrender, but kept backing out. At one point on Monday, police deemed him a threat to public safety. He eventually surrendered after being convinced to do so by his family. He is being held in the Dallas County Jail without bond and was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree receiving stolen property, second-degree receiving stolen property and eluding police. Mitchell is also being held in Dallas County Jail with no bond and is charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree receiving stolen property, second-degree receiving stolen property, and attempting to elude. Finally, Hall was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree receiving stolen property, and second-degree receiving stolen property.
