Birmingham Criminal Defense News: Franklin County, AL, Grand Jury Indictments

Posted by Steve Eversole | Dec 22, 2009 | 0 Comments

Being an experienced Birmingham criminal defense attorney, I have the knowledge and skills to represent Alabama residents and other persons accused of committing crimes by the law enforcement agencies of this state. These criminal acts can include theft, larceny, assault, drug possession, criminal sexual behavior,murder and other crimes. As an Alabama criminal lawyer, I do believe that an individual is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. That's something nobody can take away because it's a Constitutional protection granted to everyone in the United States.

Recently, a Franklin County grand jury handed down a number of indictments for a variety of crimes. Many of these individuals will claim that they were unjustly accused. A trial will be held to determine the guilt or innocence of each person. Here is a selection of those indictments:

  • Aaron Andrew Adams, 22, Vina — third-degree robbery
  • Sarah Marie Beasley, 25, Haleyville — possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia
  • Andrew Eric Bryant, 19, Haleyville — seven counts of fraudulent use of a credit card
