Blogger Comments: This is a very sad story for the Holt family. It is an embarrassment to our county that Sheriff Ana Franklin had an in-household placed on Timothy Alan Hall after he pleaded guilty of manslaughter in the death of Mark Henry Hall. Hall has been out of jail more than he has been in jail. Hall was favored by Sheriff Ana Franklin because he is the first cousin of Derek Sheats. Derek Sheats is the husband of Erika Franklin Sheats daughter of Sheriff Ana Franklin.
So, I just looked on the internet, I found out something that strikes me as very odd. I found out that Mark Henry Holt was killed by a not only a drunk driver but a man that was high on drugs. This man came into Marks lane while Mark was driving his motorcycle, Hall hit Mark head on in a vehicle and killed him! After the police got Hall he was arrested and he got bonded out! While he was on bond Hall was still drinking, and driving and partying. Mark didn't get that lucky he was DOA! After a long wait, Hall finally pled guilty and was supposed to do prison time! Supposed to? Yes, that's right he was supposed to do a prison sentence but since he is related to the sheriff he is "in jail", but he actually isn't even in jail!? Hall is in work release where he gets to be outside of the walls for 18hrs a day all he does is sleep in jail! Hall gets to make money at a real job and have the same freedoms I and even all of you have! This is ridiculous, right? How can a man be guilty of killing another man and be incarcerated but at the same time be allowed to roam the streets like a free man and even drive a vehicle? Marks family cannot feel justice for his killer! Mark did not ask for Hall to drive drunk and kill him and neither did marks family!! How do I know? That's simple I'm Mark Anthony Holt one of the two children Mark Henry Holt had. This is unjust if I've ever seen it! I'm outraged and I plea with the people of Morgan county to please help get this man inside the prison walls where he deserves to be, I bet you before this man ends up drinking and driving again and ends up killing one of your friends or family members, it may he your parents, your best friend or even your kids outside playing in the yard! I want this man to have to know what he did is not acceptable before he strikes again and tears a hole in one of your hearts in one way or another!
