Tuscumbia man pleads guilty to lesser charge in attempted murder case


COLBERT COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – A Tuscumbia man has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge after being charged with attempted murder following a scheduled jury trial, court documents show.

Aaron Brown, 32, was charged with the 2021 attempted murder of Lindsey Thrasher. However, he pleaded guilty to discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling, according to a court filing.

Brown was arrested on August 6, 2021, and was taken to Colbert County Jail on $50,000 bond. He would bail the same day and be released from custody.

On November 18, 2021, a Colbert County grand jury charged Brown with attempted murder. The jury trial was pushed back a few times, but eventually Brown signed the plea agreement.

The plea agreement also states that Brown has waived his right to a formal sentencing hearing, waives his right to an appeal, and will not be allowed to have any contact with the victim.

Brown was ordered to post $350 bail.
