Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up October 17th

J.D. Lloyd - Monday, October 17, 2016

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



  • - The employees and patrons of Upside Down Plaza in downtown Birmingham were thrown into an unexpected direction last Wednesday when an underage woman shot the bartender for refusing her service. The couple fled the scene and later crashed into a bridge near Sloss Furnace. They were arrested and taken into custody. The man shot underwent surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.
  • - An 18-year-old, North Alabama teen is currently facing charges of first-degree criminal mischief and second-degree arson; he could receive up to 30 years in prison if convicted. Allegedly, the suspect set fire to the house belonging to his neighbor as well as burning 95 bales of hale in two separate incidents. Limestone County Police have set bail at $7500.
  • - Cherokee County's warrant round-up on Tuesday yielded ten arrests with one suspect getting away during a vehicle and foot pursuit. Of those arrested, the charges included drug trafficking, rape, non-payment of child support and hindering prosecution.
