Our firm recently settled a case against the Dale-Geneva Court Services Program, Inc., a private non-profit company authorized to provide probation-type services to persons who had been sentenced to the confinement of the Department of Corrections. These programs, commonly referred to as Community Corrections programs, are set up in just about every county in Alabama. In some counties the County Commission runs the programs. In other counties, the programs are run by private non-profit companies with state funding from the Department of Corrections.
In this case, Stewart, a convicted sex offender, had spent ten years in the custody of the Department of Corrections. After being released, he was arrested three more times on domestic violence charges. Stewart had also been arrested for a violation of the Community Notification Act. After his arrest for this violation, Stewart was allowed to make application and was accepted into the Community Corrections program even though the statute prohibited him from being accepted in the program. After being in the program less than six days, Stewart sexually abused a minor child. This sort of thing should never have happened. The amount of the settlement is confidential. The case was handled by Mike Crow in our firm and Robert Drummond of Fairhope, Alabama. They did a very good job.
