The Criminal Case Against Jeremy Shane Hall

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation has finished its investigation of Russellville police officer Sgt. Jeremy Shane Hall. The Phil Campbell resident is currently on unpaid leave pending an official hearing.

While four women have filed civil suits against Hall, the ABI's case involves only three, one of whom Hall is reputed to have had sex with. The case will now be presented to the next grand jury session. It was originally reported that five former Russellville City Jail inmates had filed civil suits; however, only four are listed in the May 13th complaint: Elizabeth Daniel Gassaway, Sarah Elizabeth Mayfield, Christy Trapp Sanders, and Christy Kelton. Police Chief Chris Hargett is also listed as a defendant in the suit.

Hall reportedly was married at the time of the complaints and is the father of three children. Sources say his employment hearing will not take place until after the grand jury meets.

Mayor Chuck Lansdell and Councilwoman Thelma Lambert were again no-shows at the last town council meeting in Cherokee. Reportedly the most important city business to be discussed was the addition of signatory names to the town's bank account; however, we're surprised the duo were not present to protest the action.


Happy Birthday to Len Gregory, a name we hope to see on future Colbert County ballots!
