“This outcome should serve as a reminder to those who wish to commit crimes involving guns,” 12th District Judicial Circuit District Attorney James Tarbox said. “Our office will seek to prosecute you, and if you are convicted we will seek to have the judge send you to prison.”

Senior Assistant District Attorney Jon Folmar represented the State of Alabama at the sentencing hearing and the hearing was held before Judge Jeff Kelley in the Pike County Circuit Court.
