Halloween: Legal Perspective

Coolest Halloween Costumes by Carole P.

If you plan on trick or treating in Alabama, do not dress as a minister,  nun, priest,  or rabbi.

According to Alabama law, a person who fraudulently pretends in public to be a minister of any religion can be fined up to $500.00 and/or confined in the county jail for up to one year.  Ala. Code Section 13A-14-4 (2012).
