Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up November 6th

J.D. Lloyd - Monday, November 06, 2017

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



- According to the Mobile County Sheriff's Office, three teens have been arrested after six Alma-Bryant High School students were hospitalized this past Thursday. After responding to calls from the school that some students were behaving strangely (mood swings that made the teens both "loopy and lethargic"), narcotics officers conducted field tests and discovered that several of the students had ingested gummy bears laced with methamphetamine. These students also registered increased heart rates of 130-160 beats per minute. The three unidentified juvenile suspects face charges of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance and three other juveniles are being investigated in connection with the incident. The six hospitalized students are expected to make a full recovery. 


- Birmingham police are on the lookout for local woman Faith Jones who faces first-degree theft of property charges for allegedly embezzling thousands of dollars from a church daycare. In less than a year, Jones had deposited more than $21,000 of payments from the State of Alabama Childcare Resources meant for the daycare into her personal account. Because of the actions of Jones (who is the director of the daycare), the facility has been forced to close down. 



- A 41-year-old Birmingham man was identified on Thursday as the third Birmingham homicide victim in less than eight hours. The three victims (Jeffery Tubbs, 51-year-old Grady Isam Jenkins and 54-year-old Sylvester Poole) were all found dead of gunshot wounds. According to authorities, several of these shootings including Tubbs seem to have nebulous motives at the time, though Birmingham police are currently investigating each incident to determine clear motives.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up August 31st

J.D. Lloyd - Thursday, August 31, 2017



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

- A Helena school cafeteria worker found traces of meth on a child's lunch money, leading to the arrest of the mother by the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force over the past weekend. The child had taken the money from the purse of his mother, 44-year-old Heather Brooke Isaacs of Alabaster. When authorities went to her home, they discovered other evidence of synthetic drug use. Isaacs has been charged with chemical endangerment of a child where a controlled substance was produced, possession of imitation drugs and use/possession of drug paraphernalia. She is in the Shelby County Jail on a $17,000 bond; the child has been taken into custody by the Shelby County Department of Human Resources.



- Instead using the vehicle to deliver children to their usual morning destination, a Kentucky drove a stolen Blount County school bus through Jefferson and Blount Counties around 1 a.m. this past Monday morning, prompting a police car pursuit from exit 110 on I-59 south to the Acton Road exit on I-459 north. During the chase, the suspect hit one state trooper vehicle and attempted to hit several others. After being stopped by police and before being arrested, the suspect, 24-year-old Brandon Peckinpaugh, threw a stolen handgun out one of the bus windows. Saying that he stole the bus because his friends left him, Peckinpaugh is charged with first-degree theft of property, two counts of unlawful breaking and entering of a vehicle and two counts of theft of second-degree theft of property (the stolen handguns). Police also plan to get an attempted murder for Peckinpaugh's collision with the state trooper.



A Birmingham man was shot while playing videos games on his front porch this past Monday. Witnesses said they heard an argument between the victim and the suspect followed by 15-20 shots fired into the victim's home and BMW. The gunfire shattered the vehicle's windows and flattened one tire while the victim suffered a non life-threatening shot in the leg. The suspect is believed to live nearby, but Birmingham police have not announced any arrests.
