Over the course of a two week period, Hall sent inappropriate messages to the undercover detective soliciting sexual favors.

On Monday, 7/2/12 Hall made arrangements to meet the juvenile at a local park.  Upon his arrival at the park, detectives arrested him and eventually charged him with:

1. TRAVELING TO MEET A MINOR – Bond $10,000
2. CERTAIN USE OF COMPUTER SERVICE PROHIBITED – Bond $5,000

During the investigation Hall admitted to the allegations made against him.

Hall is currently unemployed.
