According to information on the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office website Stallings was booked into the Cherokee County Detention Center Monday morning shortly before 10:00 – and released approximately half-an-hour later, after meeting his $25,000 bond.
The Grand Jury Indictments were for Forgery 2nd Degree and Possession of a Forged Instrument 2nd Degree.
Stallings was arrested February 28th on the charges of Theft of Property 1st Degree and Theft by Deception 1st Degree; he met his $50,000 bond later that same day and was released.
The 45 year old ex-attorney was also jailed in October of last year (2013) after being indicted by a grand jury on a 1st Degree Theft by Deception charge; he bonded out after meeting his $15,000 bond.
Stallings name was recently back in the news after convicted murderer Barbara Ann Roberts was awarded more than two million dollars by a Cherokee County jury in a civil case against attorney Steve Lanier.
Barbara Ann Roberts was convicted in August 2008 in the 2006 slaying of her ex-husband’s new wife Darlene Roberts.
She had retained the services of Lanier, a former Rome District Attorney, who in turn had hired Rodney Stallings due to the fact that he was required to work with a local attorney on the case.
During the course of the trial, Lanier was admitted to the Alabama Bar.
In her suit, Roberts claimed that Lanier and/or Stallings withdrew approximately $100,000 from her bank account without proper authorization or consent, and converted those funds to their own use.
Lanier has told several media outlets that he fully intends to appeal the decision in the case – and feels confident that he can get the verdict, and the award, overturned.
