Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up June 7th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, June 07, 2019

 


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


- Police recently arrested a 19-year-old-year suspect a few days after she allegedly crashed her vehicle into a Waffle House in Arab. Somerville resident, Rebekah Paige Monk, has been charged with driving under the influence and being a minor in possession/consumption of alcohol, both misdemeanor charges. The crash occurred around 7:30 this past Saturday morning with the restaurant sustaining damage, though no injuries were reported. Authorities also found a bottle of vodka in the suspect's car. She turned herself in the following Thursday.

 

- Authorities recently announced the capture of the seventh suspect of eight involved in a deadly stabbing that happened during a burglary in north Alabama on May 6th. Federal officers arrested 19-year-old Kenneth Harvey in Florida. Harvey and the seven other suspects (Hunter Moore, Austin Holmes, Caeleb Kegley, Hunter DuBois, Larry Watts, Logan Cypret [the eighth suspect who is expected to turn himself in] and Lucas Kemp) went to a Madison home to rob its two occupants and allegedly killed 21-year-old Luke Pratt and shot another 26-year-old male. Planning allegedly occurred at a friend's apartment in Athens, and Moore is suspected to be the "mastermind" according to authorities. Each suspect faces charges ranging from burglary to felony murder to capital murder.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up May 31st, 2019

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, May 31, 2019


 

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


 

- Citizens and authorities were baffled recently when over $1 million in narcotics washed up on the shore over a two-day period in Orange Beach. Investigators say that the first day yielded 21 pounds marijuana and a kilo of cocaine while they discovered an additional 38 kilos of cocaine the following day. Officers believe the drugs came from a vessel because of the watertight packaging.

 

- Two male suspects who already state face charges in connection with alleged corruption at the Birmingham Water Works Board now have been federally indicted wire fraud charges for allegedly perpetrating a fake invoice scheme against the water works in which they acquired nearly $250,000. The two suspects are Jerry Jones, a former vice president of Birmingham engineering and consulting firm Arcadis, and Mount Vernon Mayor Terry L. Williams. According to authorities, created nine Global Systems International (Williams's company) invoices that falsely states that the company performed work at the Shades Mountain Filter Plant Project as an Arcadis subcontractor. The state charges the two suspect face are in relation to the allegation that the men offered bribes to then-Water Works Board Chairwoman Sherry Lewis in exchange for influencing board actions. While Lewis is still on the board, the charges got Jones fired from his position at Arcadis.

- Three men, including one dubbed one of "Walker County's Most Wanted", were arrested in a recent raid carried out by the sheriff's office at the home of Bobby and Cheryl Tucker on Crest Avenue in Parrish. Authorities had executed a search at the residence once before. During the raid (which also included Parrish Police Department, the Jasper Police Department Narcotics Division, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit, and the Alabama Department of Corrections Prison K9 team), police arrested Robert Deangelo Tucker on charges of trafficking methamphetamine. Robert Tucker had evaded captured during the May 15 raid of the home, and had outstanding warrants for first-degree escape, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, carrying a concealed weapon, distribution of methamphetamines, distribution of marijuana, and distribution of Suboxone.

- Authorities are currently investigating a 29-year-old Hoover woman who allegedly stole jewelry while pet sitting. Police responded to a call at a local residence from which several pieces of jewelry were taken, even though no burglary seemed to have taken place. The victim accused her pet sitter, Jordan Elizabeth Rodgers. Rodgers had sold jewelry matching the description of those pieces to a store in Birmingham. Once the victim identified the jewelry (worth over $12,000), police obtained warrants against Rodgers for two counts of first-degree receiving stolen property and one count of second-degree receiving stolen property. Rodgers turned herself in to the Jefferson County Jail this past Monday and was released after posting the $30,000 bond.

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, March 29, 2019

 


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

 

- Viral videos are all the rage these days, but one of the latest uploads focused on two Limestone County men displaying actual road rage. Posted to Facebook on Wednesday, the video showed a truck stopping in front of another vehicle. Two individuals driving the truck that stopped walked up to the motorist of the other vehicle, who was the one filming the incident. In his post, the motorist said the truck was "tailgating him and then cut him off in traffic after he warned the truck that it was staying too close by tapping on his brakes." After the video was posted online, investigators identified the two suspects as 42-year-old Bradley Joe Carter and an unnamed juvenile male. When sheriff's deputies went to Carter's home, the department said that Carter resisted arrest. Carter was charged with disorderly conduct, endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest while the juvenile was charged with disorderly conduct. Carter was released from Limestone County Jail after posting a $2,500 bond.

 

- While being questioned by police this past Wednesday, a Town Creek man suspected of domestic violence pretended to be an Alabama state trooper by showing a replica badge. Police encountered 31-year-old Cheston Jared Campbell while investigating an report of domestic violence in the area of Sixth Avenue and Gordon Drive Southeast. Authorities said that Campbell had been assaulting a woman when a civilian intervened and stopped the suspect. Campbell revealed his fake badge to multiple officers who tried to intervene. However, Decatur police spokeswoman Emme Long revealed that the replica was an old badge that was no longer in use. Though police have not announced a domestic violence charge, Campbell has been charged with a Class C felony for impersonating a peace officer, according to Decatur police. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up March 13th

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, March 13, 2019

 


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

 

- A few weeks ago, a 61-year-old man posing as an Uber driver was pulled over by a Tuscaloosa County sheriff’s deputy in the early morning hour of 2:30 a.m. When the officer approached the vehicle, he noticed an unconscious college-aged female in the backseat. The suspect, Tommy Wayne Beard, then stated that he was an Uber driver and that he was taking the "intoxicated" passenger back to her residence. When investigators spoke with the passenger, they learned that she was a 22-year-old UA student who lived near the campus. However, she said that she did not remember getting into the car with Beard and only could remember leaving a downtown Tuscaloosa bar. Beard later confessed that he was not an official Uber driver, but that he placed the sticker on his 2012 black Ford Taurus so he could pick people up and give them rides. Upon looking on Beard's cell phone, they discovered photographs of college-aged females that appeared to be unconscious while they were in the backseat of his vehicle in his cell phone, something to which Beard admitted. This past Friday, Beard has been charged with first-degree kidnapping and was booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $45,000 bond.

 

- The Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team reported that 53-year-old Gregory Bohannon and his wife, 58-year-old Teresea Bohannon, were arrested last Monday after they were discovered in a semitrailer with over four kilograms of cocaine, 600 pounds of marijuana and $20,000 in cash. Days later, three male suspects, Oronda Oberry, Oronda Hamilton and Eric Maxwell, were stopped in a car with over 3,400 ecstasy pills inside with an estimated street value of $68,000.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up March 4th, 2019

J.D. Lloyd - Monday, March 04, 2019

 


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

 

 

 

- This past Wednesday, Huntsville police officer Gerald Johnson was dining at the Meteor Buffet restaurant when a bizarre fight broke out with two diners disputing over a popular food item. According to the officer, diners in the restaurant had been waiting more than ten minutes for the crab legs to come out, and once the food was put on the hot bar, patrons did not serve themselves peacefully. Tempers flared as plates shattered and serving tongs were used like swords. Chequita Jenkins allegedly participated in the scuffle by beating fellow patron John Chapman and leaving him with a cut on his head. Jenkins faces assault charges while Chapman was charged with disorderly conduct.

 

- A Woodville man, 45-year-old Roger Dale Johnson, is facing charges of attempted assault and possession of a destructive device after allegedly trying to blow up his mother with a booby-trapped storage shed containing a propane tank. Police responded to the mother's call when she reported that her son may be on some type of narcotics while also storing the propane tank in the shed. When the suspect's mother and a Jackson County Sheriff's officer tried to enter the shed, a small explosion occurred. A device reportedly was supposed to ignite the tank, but the gas was not turned on, which fortunately meant no injuries for either the officer or the mother.

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.
