Local Man Convicted of Extortion

Thursday, August 18, 2016

A DeKalb County Circuit Judge sentences a man convicted of second degree extortion to 20 years in prison. Everett Stout was convicted of filing false liens against banks in Anniston and Oxford. Stout was arrested in 2014 in Oxford when authorities said he tried to buy a motor home from Dandy R.V. Superstore with paperwork claiming Regions Bank owed him $10 billion. At the time of his arrest, Stout was identified as a "sovereign citizen." Stout and his common law wife, Miriam Shultz, who was also arrested in 2014, have also been arrested for filing false documents against public officials.
