Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up July 19th

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, July 19, 2017


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



- A trio of suspects (including one teenager) have been arrested and charged for the murder of a Tuscaloosa County mother. The cause of death for Jennifer Nevin and any possible motives have not been released by authorities. Her family spoke to authorities and press about the victim's previous mental illness and substance abuse problems. Her body was discovered on a dirt road by a gas worker this past Monday. All three suspects are undergoing the booking process at the Tuscaloosa County jail. 


- A Huntsville college student, who has been under investigation since January for making alleged statements involving ISIS, will soon have his case presented to a grand jury for consideration of an indictment. The suspect, Aziz Sayyed, is charged with "obtaining bomb making materials to set off an explosion at a Madison County police or military building." His June 15th arrest at a downtown traffic stop came after police investigated his apartment that day and seized the materials needed to make a TATP (triacetone triperoxide) bomb, the same explosives used at the Ariana Grande concert bombing in Manchester. A few months before his arrest, Sayyed's friends had reported that Sayyed had shown them an ISIS flag and had them view videos of ISIS attacks. At Sayyed's preliminary hearing, Huntsville police investigator Brandon Snipes testified that Sayyed did not plan on conducting a suicide bombing; instead he wanted to live and carry out additional attacks for which ISIS would claim credit.


- A Farmers Insurance agency manager in Mobile recently received charges of first-degree theft by deception after Mobile Police Department arrested him at his office this past Tuesday. The police said that 35-year-old Thomas Burns had embezzled tens of thousands of dollars from an unidentified local business in Mobile. Burns has been the manager of the Farmers Insurance agency for five years.
