'Auburn Four' indicted on robbery charges

Posted by Tom Fornelli

In early March four Auburn football players were arrested following a robbery of a residence and were all quickly dismissed from the football team. Though just because the four players are no longer playing football, that doesn't mean that their done with dealing with the consequences of their actions, and on Wednesday the four players were indicted.
A Lee County grand jury has indicted four former Auburn football players on armed robbery charges in relation to an incident at an Auburn trailer park home in March, according to court documents.

Antonio Goodwin, Mike McNeil, Shaun Kitchens and Dakota Mosley were each indicted on five counts of first-degree robbery, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of third-degree theft of property. Mosley faces an additional charge of misdemeanor conspiracy to hinder business.

They are scheduled for arraignment in Lee County Circuit Court on May 26. A tentative trial date has been set for June 16.
The four players were arrested on March 11th after breaking into a trailer home south of Auburn's campus, and according to witnesses, making off with cellphones and a safe before leaving the scene in a car driven by Mosley. The players also brandished handguns as they committed the robbery. The players were then picked up by Auburn police in a routine traffic stop where a gun was recovered along with the stolen property, and after being fingered by witnesses, all four players admitted to their roles in the robbery.

Indictments hit Harvey Updyke

Posted by Jerry Hinnen

It's been a big 24 hours for the legal system in the state of Alabama, as grand juries have handed down two high-profile indictments.

The first is of accused Toomer's Corner oaks poisoner Harvey Updyke, against whom a state grand jury issued six new indictments May 11, the Birmingham News reported yesterday. In addition to his previous district court charge of first-degree criminal mischief, Updyke now also faces "two counts of criminal mischief, two counts of desecrating a venerable object, and two counts of a state law that includes making it unlawful to damage, vandalize, or steal any property on or from an animal or crop facility."

Updyke will be arraigned on the new charges May 26, with his trial currently scheduled to begin June 20. (The trees Updyke stands accused of poisoning are, unfortunately, not doing well at the moment.)
