Earlier this year, Don Ho Law posted an article concerning regarding charges filed against a 12-year-old Riverside boy who allegedly murdered his neo-Nazi father.
Most recently, the now 13-year-old Riverside boy who fatally shot his neo-Nazi father as he slept in 2010 was sentenced to 40 years to life. Riverside County Superior Court Judge Jean Leonard ordered the teenage boy to be placed with the Division of Juvenile Justice.
In January the court found the teen intentionally murdered his father, Jeff Hall. The boy allegedly put a gun to his father’s head as he slept and pulled the trigger. The teen’s attorney argued he belonged in an alternative treatment center to deal with his learning disabilities and other special needs.
The Riverside District Attorney’s Office has stated that, with good behavior, the teen could be eligible for parole in about seven years. The maximum time he would spend at the juvenile detention center would be 10 years.
The teen’s attorney has filed an appeal in the hopes of overturning both the boy’s conviction for second-degree murder and his placement in a juvenile facility, accusing everyone from the D.A.’s office to the judge of neglecting key evidence in the case such as abuse from the boy’s father and mishandling of the child’s case by Child Protective Services. The teen’s attorney has called on Gov. Jerry Brown to pardon her client, and his attorney has also called on the attorney general to investigate alleged corruption in the D.A.’s office, the sentencing judge and Child Protective Services.
