Alabama Criminal Laws

Welcome to FindLaw's Alabama criminal law section, featuring concise explanations of criminal statutes to help you navigate the justice system. Here you will find articles covering a wide range of criminal offenses in the state, including identity theft, child abuse, manslaughter, drug crimes, and many more. This section also covers related criminal matters such as capital punishment and protective orders (with details on how to get one). While similar, state criminal laws differ from one state to the next, so it's important to learn about the elements of an offense and the likely consequences upon conviction before speaking with a criminal defense attorney.
