Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up December 20th

J.D. Lloyd - Tuesday, December 20, 2016

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




  • - A 23-year-old Morris man, Callin Craig Curlette, recently arrested by Oneonta police is facing his second drunk driving charge in three years, with his blood alcohol content registering as .16 (twice the legal limit). However, his first charge of driving under the influence in 2013 (this time in Locus Fork with a BAC of .219) also indicted him in the death of James Edward Gill with charges of reckless manslaughter and vehicular homicide. His trial for this incident has been scheduled and rescheduled multiple times throughout 2016. This past Tuesday, a Blount County judge revoked Curlette’s 2013 bond.
  • - A 37-year-old Chelsea man, Adam Michael Burrus, has been charged with murder in the December 14th shooting death of his friend and business partner, Connie Overstreet Woolweaver, a mother of two. Woolweaver was reportedly shot multiple times with a 9 mm handgun, including at least one shot to the head, leading police to describe the act as a “crime of passion”. Though there were rumors of Woolweaver loaning Burrus a large sum of money, but Shelby County Sheriff John Samaniego dismissed the theories as “hearsay”. Burrus is currently being held on $500,000 bond.
  • - The Birmingham yearly homicide count reached 100 for the first time since 2006 after a man and woman were found shot to death inside their burning home in Ensley early Sunday. Police are currently looking for suspects and a determination of motive. Of the 2016 homicides, “eight have been ruled justifiable and two others were officer-involved shootings by outside law enforcement agencies.”
