Alabama Criminal Law Round Up March 7th, 2018

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, March 07, 2018

 


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

 

 

 

- A Lauderdale County man has recently been arrested for the third time on charges of animal cruelty. This time the suspect, David Wilson Coffman Jr., was arrested this past Friday and charged with 16 counts of felony animal cruelty, 16 counts of improperly disposing of an animal carcass and 150 counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty charges after Lauderdale County sheriff's deputies removed nearly 300 malnourished cows from his 12 acres of farmland off of County Road 95 in Rogersville. The sheriff's office reported that nearly all of the animals had been neglected and many were discovered to be near death. The animals that had died were determined to be malnourished. According to deputies, Coffman could face additional charges, but is being held in Lauderdale County Jail with no bail set.

 

 

- A task force composed of investigators from the U.S. Secret Service, Vestavia Hills, Mountain Brook, Homewood and Birmingham police and the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office recently announced the arrests of five Birmingham women accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from area Walmart stores. The women (Ariel Mack, 26, Daricka Mack, 25, Andrea McCracklin, 32, Zipporah Davis, 20, and Denise Gamble, 24) worked together in a "Cash Cash Scam," a scheme that has been replicated throughout various Walmarts across the country and has cost the company significant losses. By befriending the cashier at a store and often saying they were a previous employee, the suspect then tricks the cashier into fraudulently loading pre-paid gift cards. According to police, the suspects "either knows what buttons to push to open the register and will distract the clerk while doing so or will give the cashier a code to put in that will trigger the register opening." The credit card used to load the gift card and open the register is false, but will trigger a real transaction. The five suspects in this particular group hit up stores in both Jefferson and Shelby Counties. They all face felony charges, were released on bonds ranging from $10,000 to $60,000 and will have their first scheduled court appearances this month or next.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up May 19th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, May 19, 2017

 


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

 

 

- An investigation by the Anderson Fire Department into a Lauderdale County house fire revealed that the fire had been intentional. The owner of the two-story dwelling, 47-year-old Georgeanna Rickard, has been accused of sending her boyfriend, 51-year-old Kenneth Hudson, to burn down the house while she was away on vacation. The duo eventually stated that they had planned to collect $100,000 from the insurance company for the damage. Hudson is charged with first-degree insurance fraud and first-degree arson; he could face up to life in prison if convicted. Rickard also faces the first-degree insurance fraud charge along with second-degree arson; if convicted, she could face up to 20 years in prison. 

 

- A Hoover man has received his third financial institution robbery charge since the end of January. The first robbery occurred at APCO Employees Credit Union at Chelsea Crossroads on January 30th, the second incident was at Covenant Bank in Leeds on March 21st and the final holdup occurred at the Northport BB&T bank on April 13th. 

 

- In April, grand jury indicted a Shelby County couple on felony charges for keeping their adoptive teen in "forced isolation" for 23 hours a day over the course of several years. When the teen was rescued from the house and later hospitalized, it was revealed that he only weighed 47 pounds. The couple are each being held on a $1 million bond. The husband's attorney has asked several times (including a request this past Monday) for the bond to be reduced to a "reasonable amount" but the judge has either denied the request, or in this most recent, not responded.
