Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up September 21st

J.D. Lloyd - Thursday, September 21, 2017



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



- A Bessemer teen with a half million dollar bond is behind bars after racking up charges from a dozen alleged crimes ranging from animal cruelty to rape. Recent court records reveal that on August 9th, 19-year-old Treveon Deshawn Weaver allegedly entered a couple's home armed and proceeded to steal two cell phones, assault the man, raped and assaulted the woman and knocked two teeth of their dog's mouth. The full of Weaver's charges include three counts of second-degree assault, three counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of first -degree kidnapping, and one count each of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, first-degree burglary and cruelty to animals. His attorney states that Weaver maintains his innocence with his case soon going to a grand jury for indictment consideration.


- A Hoover residence break-in allowed police to put a "career criminal" back behind bars. Authorities found 34-year-old Bobby Earl Townsend in the backyard of the residence armed with a pistol and carrying a backpack full of suspected stolen goods and burglar's tools. After a brief chase, Townsend was put in the Jefferson County Jail and charged with possession of burglar's tools and felon in possession of a firearm. Townsend's record has had at least 20 criminal charges since 2004. 


- After originally being charged with allegedly leaking information to a blogger, a fired Morgan County Jail warden now faces misdemeanor charges for tampering with government records. The blog in question, the Morgan County Whistleblower, constantly criticized Sheriff Ana Franklin and her office. After serving a warrant to search the house of the suspect, 62-year-old Leon Bradley, Etowah County Sheriff's Office and Franklin's deputies found more than 300 files, including employee, security and inmate documents at the home. A recent court document though suggests that Bradley is now charged not with leaking the documents, but just possessing them.
