It is not unusual for individuals to find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. Many people can often state that this type of scenario has happened to them with varying degrees of negative outcomes. However, when parties are found at the scene of an alleged crime, they may find themselves facing criminal charges.
One man in Alabama apparently recently landed in such a predicament. Reports stated that authorities were purportedly alerted to a situation at a bank. They apparently received an alarm call, but it was unclear whether a security system or individual may have placed that call. Nonetheless, when police arrived at the scene, they allegedly found the man in the entrance area of the bank and a common residence.
The door to the bank was reportedly unsecured, and the man allegedly had items that were considered similar to those that may be inside the bank. However, it was not detailed what those items may have been. Police took the man into custody on charges of third-degree burglary. At the time of the report, he was still in custody on a $2,500 bond.
Criminal charges of any type can seem intimidating to handle. The Alabama man involved in this case may feel particularly uneasy about having to move through the court proceedings associated with the allegations brought against him. Luckily, he does have options for gaining more information on his legal options as well as obtaining professional assistance as his case moves forward. Knowing more about his possible defense avenues may help him better determine his best course of action.
