Landlord Criminal Liability


This might be a state specific question or a topic for discussion:
We are in Alabama. What is the state law regarding Criminal Liability that falls on landlord if a tenant or a visitor to the tenant becomes criminal or caused disturbance to  the neighborhood either with Drugs, Guns, Harboring criminals etc.......

Can the landlord be liable for such actions?

How do the landlord go by terminating the lease?

Is an arrest enough or you have to have a court conviction?

Any thoughts or information based on other state law would be greatly appreciated.
