A former Enterprise High School coach was recently acquitted of sex-related criminal charges out of state, but now he faces similar charges in Coffee County, Alabama. According to the Enterprise Police Department, 41-year-old Bubba Guy Nall is suspected of incest in 2006. Individuals can be charged with incest if they allegedly have sexual relations with a blood relative or even an adopted relative.
Enterprise investigators had interviewed the alleged victim in Florida, where the suspect was recently acquitted on similar charges. According to reports, the victim said she and Mr. Nall had sex multiple times while she was visiting the man in Alabama. Gary McAliley, the Coffee County district attorney in charge of the case, chose to have Nall arrested on one count of incest and then presented the remaining counts to a grand jury.
According to authorities, the Alabama grand jury met back in October 2007 and indicted Nall on seven counts of incest. Now that the man has been acquitted in Florida, Alabama is ready to try him here at home.
As a Birmingham criminal defense lawyer, I provide a very aggressive defense for all of my clients, especially to those accused of sex crimes. Society is in no way lenient when it comes to suspected sex offenders. The latest reports of this particular case show just how persistent the authorities can be in regard to sex-related offenses. There are always two sides to any story, but this type of case sometimes comes down to one person's word against the other's. This is why anyone accused of a sex crime deserves to have an experienced legal professional represent them in a court of law.
Although Mr. Nall was recently found not guilty of molestation charges in Levy County, Florida, he will have to stand trial in Coffee County soon. McAliley has already said that Nall's acquittal on three counts of sexual battery on a child between the ages of 12 and 18 will have no influence on the Alabama case. McAliley said his office has different evidence against Nall than that found in Florida.
If you or a family member is accused of a crime, do yourself a favor and retain the services of qualified criminal defense attorney to handle your case. Criminal prosecution is serious business and you need an aggressive lawyer on your side.
