Hall was convicted of vehicular homicide. Upon hearing the news the sheriff immediately requested Hall be transferred to the Morgan County Jail. Franklin made a swap with another inmate that had a dispute in Morgan County with a a corrections officer's sister, so I am told. You can't make this stuff up. The sheriff signed an agreement or directed the agreement be made with the State of Alabama Prison System in what is called an "In Hold Switch". Once in place (less than a week) Hall was placed on work release and still is until this day. What constitutes a serious crime in the eyes of Sheriff Ana Franklin? Or for the State Prison System for that matter.
After a Morgan County inmate trustee escaped the sheriff told the public that she had no clue how serious the inmates previous charges were because her staff doesn't have the capability to conduct those type background checks. It took only a short time for the news media to find the inmates previous charges in Morgan County. Hum!
