It's All In Who You Know - Sheriff Ana Franklin Protecting Timothy Alan Hall, Convicted of Manslaughter

Blogger Comments:  We have heard all the comments by the press questioning why a man convicted of manslaughter held in Decatur Corrections was allowed out on work release.  One report from Channel 48 news reported that inmate Brown was assigned as a minimum custody and that the inmate had no disciplinary actions over the past 12 months.  The story goes on to say that inmates convicted of homicide or manslaughter who are within 3 years of the end of their sentence or parole may be considered for minimum custody.  The article goes on to say that Brown was eligible for parole in December 2018.  

 

We want to remind our readers that Timothy Alan Hall who is the first cousin of Derek Sheats, Sheriff Ana Franklin’s son-in-law was charged with vehicular homicide and convicted of manslaughter in Limestone County.  Franklin placed an in-house hold on Hall and within a week he was transferred to the Morgan County Jail.  Hall will never see prison walls for the crime he committed while drunk and on dope during the time when he killed the victim.  We have heard that Hall drives a vehicle around town.  Is that True or False Sheriff Ana Franklin?

 

Hall has been on work release since he entered the Morgan County Jail.  Our sources tell us Hall is out on the streets more than he is in jail.  Why didn’t the press ever pick up the story on Hall?  We have been reporting on Hall since he entered the Jail in Morgan County. 

This is another one of the cases from the Morgan County Jail that people have chosen to ignore.  We believe Hall is scheduled for release in 2018.  Not that it matters.  The only thing Hall does is sleep in the jail.  The rest of the time he has had the privileges of freedom that citizens who have never been convicted of a crime hold.

 

 Two sentenced to prison in fatal DUI wrecks in Limestone, By Jean Cole

·         jean@athensnews-courier.com, Jun 15, 2013


Two people pleaded guilty to manslaughter Monday in Limestone County Circuit Court and were sentenced to prison in connection with separate fatal wrecks.
In a plea agreement offered by the Limestone County District Attorney's Office, Jessica Jean Lewter, 51, of Huntsville, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in exchange for a 20-year prison sentence, said Limestone County District Attorney Brian Jones. She avoided trial on a charge of reckless murder in the 2013 death of Terrell Kent Hollingsworth, 45, of Decatur.
Also Monday, Timothy Alan Hall, 31, of 1833 Woodmont St., Hartselle, who was indicted on a charge of reckless murder, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in connection with a wreck that killed Mark Henry Holt, 48, of Toney, on Huntsville-Browns Ferry Road on Aug. 19, 2012. Hall - who apologized to Holt's family for what he had done - was sentenced to 15 years in prison, Jones said.
"They are both eligible for parole sometime in the future," the district attorney said.
Lewter case
Records show Lewter had three previous DUI's before the fatal wreck. She received her fourth DUI — and the reckless murder charge — when she struck Hollingsworth's vehicle on Interstate 565 near Mooresville. The wreck occurred about 7:30 p.m. Sept. 25 in the eastbound lanes of 565, just east of Interstate 65. At the time of the wreck, traffic on 565 was stopped because of a 4 p.m. accident that had killed an Athens mother, Marissa Baugher, and her unborn son, Micah, as well as the driver of the other car, Fredrick Bender, 66, of Vestavia.
Hollingsworth had slowed or stopped his 2006 Range Rover and was waiting at the end of a line of traffic when Lewter’s eastbound vehicle rear-ended his vehicle. He died two days later at Huntsville Hospital. His passenger, Leighann Turner of Trinity, was treated for injuries and released, according to state troopers.
Lewter was traveling about 70 miles per hour in a 60-mph zone and in traffic that had stalled from the previous wreck, according to troopers and Huntsville Police.
DUI record
Records show Limestone County charged Lewter with DUI in November 2010 in connection with a traffic accident. While the case was pending over an extended period, she was arrested two more times for DUI.
Decatur Police arrested her Feb. 6, 2012. Five months later, on July 4, 2012, Limestone County arrested her again.
After her second Limestone arrest, Jones filed a motion to revoke Lewter's bond on the first DUI case. However, before she was arrested, she pleaded guilty to both Limestone County charges and was sentenced.
These three charges occurred before the wreck in which Hollingsworth was killed.
Hall case
Authorities said Hall was eastbound on Huntsville-Browns Ferry near Gray Road when his 2011 Volkswagen Jetta crossed the center line and struck a westbound motorcycle driven by Holt about 4:30 a.m.
Holt, the father of two, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Hall was also initially charged with driving under the influence of combined substances and driving on the wrong side of the road.
