Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up August 16, 2019

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, August 16, 2019


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




An 18-year-old male suspect led police on a chase through east Jefferson County Friday morning. A sheriff's deputy had spotted a vehicle that had been stolen and used in a series of burglaries. Police followed the vehicle until the suspect crashed the car and continued fleeing on foot. Tracking dogs were brought in with one of the dogs finding the suspect, Nicholas Maurice Simmons, changing clothes in a car wash. Simmons was charged with attempting to elude, reckless endangerment, tampering with physical evidence, receiving stolen property and unlawfully carrying a pistol. He is being in the county jail on bonds totaling $34,000. Two men were also charged with interfering with government operations for trying to help Simmons evade capture.

A Madison County grand jury recently indicted a 22-year-old male suspect who allegedly shot his boss to death in July 2018 at a south Huntsville Taco Bell restaurant. According to authorities, Pete McCullough and 41-year-old Shawn Bone were arguing about an work-related issue in the restaurant parking lot when McCullough shot Bone. McCullough is out of jail on bail pending trial with a date set for January 2020.


Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up August 2nd

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, August 02, 2019


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


- Sometimes real life is stranger than the movies. This Friday, authorities announced that a Mississippi woman had been arrested in connection with two North Alabama "wedding crasher" theft cases. The suspect, 52-year-old Sandra Lynn Henson, has been charged with one misdemeanor count of theft and one felony theft charge after allegedly showing up to weddings to which she was not invited and stealing gifts. Henson turned herself in after photos of her appeared on the Florence, Alabama Police Department Facebook page. She was released from the Lauderdale County jail on $2,500 bail.



- A 50-year-old Jefferson County man named Ira Glover allegedly stole possibly hundreds of rolls of toilet paper from a Trussville Fresh Value store. This incident was one of three heists that have occurred since March and Glover had even been captured and put on probation that first time; the second heist included an unidentified accomplice. This time around, authorities were ready with a high tech surveillance operation. As he exited the store, the authorities chased Glover until he crashed on US Highway 11. Glover owns a janitorial company and was allegedly stealing the paper products to replenish his stock. He has been charged with attempting to elude law enforcement and reckless endangerment and is currently in the Trussville City Jail.
