The county lies in the north-central portion of the state with its county seat being situated in Birmingham.
It’s plain to see that this county has a large number of the total state population. No wonder then that this county has, in fact, seen a significant number of arrests of both juveniles and adults in relation to drug abuse cases and, an even worse fact, there were nearly a thousand sex offenders found in there.
