Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up April 17th

J.D. Lloyd - Monday, April 17, 2017


Here are a few of the criminal law stories that occurred around the state of Alabama this past week:



- An Easter week carnival turned violent Saturday night after an argument amongst a group of teenagers led to one male pulling out a gun and shooting six attendees of the Cathedral of the Cross event in Center Point, including a pregnant woman. Though two of the victims were rushed to a nearby hospital, none of the reported injuries were life-threatening. The Jefferson County Sheriff's office is currently searching for the suspect. The community is grateful that the situation was not worse, considering the 900-person crowd in attendance that evening. 


- A Florence couple, Daniel and Jenise Spurgeon, face nearly 700 charges of sexual and physical abuse related to the children they fostered between September 2008 and July 2015, the month the family moved to Florida. An adult daughter reported to police that Daniel Spurgeon threatened the lives of the children if they ever reported him to anyone, which allowed the abuse to go on for several years. The incident finally came to light in the summer of 2016 when the Cape Coral police picked up two of the daughters, aged 13 and 16, at a local KFC restaurant. The 13-year-old was allegedly forced into severe intoxication by Daniel Spurgeon and was soon rushed to the hospital after emergency personnel arrived on the scene. Jenise Spurgeon is currently being held without bail at the Lauderdale County Detention Center. Daniel Spurgeon is being held in a Florida jail, though Florence authorities are trying to extradite him to Alabama.



- After being evicted from his home by the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office the morning of April 10th, local man Larry Macon Moore Jr. returned to the property later that day, attempted to remove items from the residence and then allegedly set the house on fire. Police later pulled Moore over. After officers learned of the fire from the owner of the property, the suspect was charged with second-degree arson. The man in the car with Moore was arrested on three counts of failure to appear in court on traffic violations.
