Another Foothill grad attorney Kent Tierney arrested on the same charge as Aaron Hall. This was a raid by Special agents on 11/31/2013. Check out KTVU.com By Heather Homes. For some reason Pleasanton Weekly did not report it.
Very informative article. Reports. They're very important, those reports. Seriously. There's no telling what's found in them. Reports....
mike local 55 - You wrote 11/31/2013 it's the beginning of Nov.
Anybody that wants to can review this case in the online California Bar Journal, notice of suspensions.
Thank you unknown. It should be 10/31/2013 Halloween night.
What about the other arrest Mark Lacey? It would be nice to depend
on our local town paper to let us know whats going on. Or will the mug
shots and story of these two be in next weeks paper?
Why can't Glenn get this right? The father of the year, Aaron Hall was arrested for being a felon in possession of assault rifles and ammo.
Why do you keep referring to illegal assault weapons? What are the model numbers, are they illegal for anyone or just for a parolee? Why refer to them as illegal in one sentence and then say felon in possession of a assault rifle in another?
Once again, any gun possessed by Aaron Hall would be considered "illegal" due to his being on parole at the time. If these guns were found at a non felons house they would be legal. You create a false notion about the guns that many people own legally by constantly throwing the "illegal assault rifle card" at every turn. Not all assault weapons are illegal to possess as some would have you believe. Most are in fact legal to own when registered. There are AR or AK derivatives in most gun safes in the U.S. because they became even more popular after the bans and mass shootings!
Looking forward to the harshest of penalties for these two accused stooges.
From the story:
"... police said they discovered two illegal assault rifles..."
If this is an inappropriate place to ask a question about the format of the site, I apologize.
I find it difficult to understand why I have to click twice to read stories posted on the top page, once on the headline and once again on the page I am brought to in order to access the text of the story. It there a technical reason for this need?
Yeah I read the story Einstein, now go read the whole story and who wrote it! It's really a story about a family of alleged rule breakers, with a dour boy that allegedly mowed two people down killing a woman in the process. The father, a felon on parole has restrictions placed upon him, one of which disallows any firearm to be in his possession. Why keep injecting the anti assault weapon agenda onto this story? The editor/reporter Glenn, contradicts himself and confuses the issue of whether or not these guns were illegal for all or illegal for parolees only! It's very vague as to what the true facts are. Who knows what the police report says or whether it is accurate either. A competent reporter should have this facet of the story stated with detail and certainty. It may seem minor but it's wrong to portray assault weapons as being illegal to own when that simply is incorrect.
Now you need to check yourself before you go and bury your head back in the sand. You'd think we'd have better reporting and editing but all we get is predictable one-sided deletions and bias.
May the Halls rot in their self imposed Hell!
I was intrigued by mike local 55's comment back on 11/03/2013 regarding this Kent person, the Pleasanton attorney. I notice that mike's comment was posted over a year ago so I did some digging further to see what has happened since then. I learned that the District Attorney's office, after reviewing the facts in the case, then went into court and voluntarily dropped all charges against the Pleasanton attorney. This leaves me drifting on the same boat with mike as I now wonder why Heather Holmes is not reporting back to us with this key update. As viewers, I feel like we have a right to know this information and not to rely on bloggers to update one another. I personally found her "Law & Order" type report with a dramatic arrest on television to be somewhat cinematic and almost reminiscent of a "COPS" episode. This can be entertaining to watch, but when I tune into KTVU, I look for solid news reporting - not entertaining stories. And it seems to me that once you start a report, it is only fair to the viewers for the reporter to remain with this rather sensional story and report back with the final chapter so that we can know the outcome. Given that there is clearly interest in the story, I'm really at a loss in trying to figure out why Heather Holms seems to have dropped the ball on us in and left KTVU's viewers to our own devices to research this ourselves. I'm going to contact KTVU (and the Pleasanton Weekly) and see if they can find out more information and do a follow up story connect the dots for the viewership.

I think that you should just let sleeping dogs lie. You're not doing this Pleasanton attorney, Kent Tierney, any favors by shining a spotlight on him and his case. As a matter of public record, this Pleasanton attorney was suspended by the California Bar Association. Here's the statement from the California Bar Association Journal:
"KENT PIERCE TIERNEY [#186685], 42, of Pleasanton was suspended for four years, stayed, placed on four years of probation with a two-year actual suspension and until he proves his rehabilitation and he was ordered to take the MPRE and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. He was given credit for the interim suspension that began Nov. 6, 2009. The order took effect Dec. 24, 2010.
Tierney has been convicted three times for driving under the influence, a crime that does not involve moral turpitude. In the third incident, in 2008, Tierney drove 120 MPH, and drove on the center divide and the right shoulder to evade a police officer. He eventually parked and locked the car in a residential neighborhood, where the police found and arrested him. Officers found an assault rifle and magazine in the trunk. He pleaded guilty to felony evasion and DUI. His blood alcohol content was .15.
In mitigation, Tierney had substantial family and emotional problems and he is being treated for alcoholism."

So Damon, just why would we WANT to do this scumbag any favors? Three DUIs but, oh how awful, he has "issues" and that's why he should be excused from his constant drunk driving.
Please. Stop making excuses for this piece of garbage. Drunk driving is a crime that often results in the loss of innocent life. Lock him up with good old Cody Hall. Two peas in a pod.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
