Jacksonville Bank robbery suspect pleads guilty 

A 28 year old Jacksonville man, charged with last Octobers robbery of the Wachovia bank in Jacksonville has entered a guilty plea in federal court in Birmingham.  According to a press release from U.S. Attorney Alice Martin, Tyrone Leon Porter plead guilty to bank robbery, use of a firearm during a bank robbery and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.  Authorities say that Porter was one of two men who robbed the Jacksonville bank last October 24th.  Porter was arrested the day of the robbery when he was stopped by police who had staked out a residence that he visited.  Authorities continue their search for the second suspect in what Martin said may be the largest bank robbery in the history of the northern district of Alabama.  Authorities recovered most of the over 287 thousand dollars taken in the robbery.  Porter is facing up to 25 years in prison for the bank robbery as well as 7 years for the firearms charge and 15 years for possession of the firearm by a felon.  Porter is scheduled to be sentenced on June 14th in Birmingham.
 

 

Legislators override veto and approve pay raises 

State lawmakers overrode Gov. Bob Riley's veto Tuesday and approved giving each of the 140 legislators an $18,840-a-year raise.   The raise, which gives each lawmaker a 62 percent increase in compensation, was the first for Alabama's legislators since 1991. It took effect Tuesday afternoon.  Lawmakers by voice votes on March 8 approved the pay raise resolution sponsored by Rep. Demetrius Newton of Birmingham. The Governor tried to kill the resolution with a veto Tuesday. But the House of Representatives, with no debate, voted 57-41 to override Riley's veto. Only 53 votes were needed in the 105-member House. Soon after the House vote, the Senate debated the move for about 12 minutes and then voted 20-15 to override Riley's veto. Only 18 votes in the 35-member Senate were needed. Recorded votes were required to override the veto.  The local delegation split along party lines. State Sen. Del Marsh, R-Anniston, and State Rep. Randy Wood, R-Anniston, voted against the raise. State Reps. Barbara Boyd, D-Anniston, Lea Fite, D-Jacksonville, Steve Hurst, D-Munford, Richard Lindsey, D-Centre and State Sens. Kim Benefield, D-Woodland and Sen. Jim Preuitt D-Talladega voted for the raise. 

 

Gadsden council approves smoking ordinance 

The Gadsden City Council voted Tuesday to give restaurants the option of being smoke free or allowing smoking in all areas with signs prominently displaying their choice.  The ordinance will go into effect May 1. The ordinance does not affect bars or private clubs.  City Council President Ben Reed said his concerns was to protect the citizens of Gadsden.  The ordinance says restaurants shall post at every entrance a sign that identifies the establishment as a smoking establishment or non-smoking. If it is a smoking facility, smoking is allowed throughout the facility and there is no non-smoking section.  The ordinance says a owner or operator may declare the entire establishment smoke free with a no-smoking sign posted.  Someone who smokes in an area where smoking is not allowed is subject to a fine of not more than $50 and the owner or manager who fails to comply with the ordinance is subject to a $100 fine for the first violation, increasing by $100 the next two violations.  Violation by the owner or a manager of an establishment may result in the suspension or revocation of the restaurant’s permit or license.
