Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up August 16th

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, August 16, 2017


 

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


 

- The Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit recently released surveillance photos of a shooting incident in a local parking deck late last month. Two female suspects had chosen to fight at the top of the deck, and the incident began building a crowd. The fight escalated beyond control as people in the crowd started fighting each other with two people shooting into cars. When authorities searched the scene, they discovered more than 100 bullet shell casings and several bullet holes in various part of the deck. Police are still looking to identify the suspects. 

 

- Two teens (Arron Raynard Jones, 17, of Birmingham, and Jakobe Isaiah Carter, 18, of Phenix City) are being held on burglary and capital murder charges without bond for allegedly killing a construction worker outside a Madison Publix Store. Police said the two teens had been accused of running away from the Three Springs juvenile facility when they allegedly killed the construction worker. After killing the man with blunt trauma to the head, police believed the teens took the victim's cellphone and wallet, labelling it a crime of opportunity. Authorities later found the suspects hiding in the woods.

 

- A dispute over Taco Bell tacos caused an Athens man to turn violent. Tyler Tarrell Dukes, 19, has been accused of assaulting his brother with a baseball bat after he was asked to share his food. Limestone County authorities were called to the scene and found the victim bleeding from his head. Dukes has been charged with second-degree assault and could face up to ten years in prison if convicted.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up August 4th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, August 04, 2017

 


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

 

 

- Early Wednesday morning, Jefferson County sheriff's deputies responded to a call about suspicious activity and possible meth use in Mulga. They found the suspect in a van outside an abandoned house. While searching the van, authorities discovered an active methamphetamine manufacturing process in a soda bottle that was warm to the touch. Investigators and HAZMAT personnel from the sheriff's office a Narcotics Unit safely disposed of the "cook" a few hours later. Police charged the suspect, 43-year-old Kenneth Carver, with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, illegal manufacture of a controlled substance, and illegal possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in Jefferson County Jail on a $121,000 bond. 

 

- An argument about who the "big dog" was in a Huntsville neighborhood led to an intense, two-day argument between two neighbors and the eventual chopping death of one of the men at the beginning of June. After entering the house to speak with 63-year-old Robert Bezotte about payment arrangements for $40 he owed, 56-year-old Randal Wayne Beard grabbed an ax and struck Bezotte multiple times, killing him with blunt force trauma. Beard's stepson and a friend alerted the police to the situation. The authorities found Bezotte dead in his bed. Beard had walked out of the house and sat in a chair on the carport when first responders arrived. Police then found Bezotte's prescription drugs in Beard's truck as well as a wallet with a large sum of cash. Prosecutors are trying to charge Beard with capital murder, alleging that Beard had robbed as well as killed Bezotte. Beard is being held in the Madison County Jail without bail as he awaits a possible hearing before a grand jury. 

 

- A national prostitution sting led Tuscaloosa police to arrest 33 men at the Best Western Hotel on East McFarland Boulevard on July 14th, July 15th, July 21st and July 22nd. Participating in the National Johns Suppression Initiative last month, undercover officers made advertisements on websites such as Backpage.com. With the help of Northport police, the investigation by Tuscaloosa authorities yielded 31 men who were charged with soliciting prostitution and two men who were charged with traveling to meet a child for an unlawful sex act. Four firearms were also seized during the four-day bust.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up July 19th

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, July 19, 2017

 


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

 

 

- A trio of suspects (including one teenager) have been arrested and charged for the murder of a Tuscaloosa County mother. The cause of death for Jennifer Nevin and any possible motives have not been released by authorities. Her family spoke to authorities and press about the victim's previous mental illness and substance abuse problems. Her body was discovered on a dirt road by a gas worker this past Monday. All three suspects are undergoing the booking process at the Tuscaloosa County jail. 

 

- A Huntsville college student, who has been under investigation since January for making alleged statements involving ISIS, will soon have his case presented to a grand jury for consideration of an indictment. The suspect, Aziz Sayyed, is charged with "obtaining bomb making materials to set off an explosion at a Madison County police or military building." His June 15th arrest at a downtown traffic stop came after police investigated his apartment that day and seized the materials needed to make a TATP (triacetone triperoxide) bomb, the same explosives used at the Ariana Grande concert bombing in Manchester. A few months before his arrest, Sayyed's friends had reported that Sayyed had shown them an ISIS flag and had them view videos of ISIS attacks. At Sayyed's preliminary hearing, Huntsville police investigator Brandon Snipes testified that Sayyed did not plan on conducting a suicide bombing; instead he wanted to live and carry out additional attacks for which ISIS would claim credit.

 

- A Farmers Insurance agency manager in Mobile recently received charges of first-degree theft by deception after Mobile Police Department arrested him at his office this past Tuesday. The police said that 35-year-old Thomas Burns had embezzled tens of thousands of dollars from an unidentified local business in Mobile. Burns has been the manager of the Farmers Insurance agency for five years.
