Does anyone have an update on the Aaron Hall case?

Original post made by Concerned on Aug 31, 2013

I'd love to hear his bail has also been revoked. We don't need convicted felons charged with more felonies and the father of a murder suspect who bought the weapon/car that the son used to commit the murder roaming around our town and no other city deserves to take on our trash.

I'd love an update.

To Concerned, just let it go, please. It's not even your business. People in Pleasanton think they are so righteous. Let the justice system do its job. Don't you have anything better to do?

I think that it's everyone's business if a felon living in Pleasanton had possession of guns (illegal in itself for convicted felons) but moreover that the guns were illegal assault weapons. Add to that the fact that this same individual was once convicted of firing a gun at an inhabited dwelling. Pretty outrageous for such a person to be brazen enough to go out and get some illegal assault weapons after being clearly told that as a felon he was not even allowed to own a Daisy .22. That's Chutzpah.

That said, it appears that both father and son are fully ensnared in the justice system and that the system seems to be properly doing its job so far.

I agree with Sam. It is our business, and shouldn't be "let go".

Let's hope he gets the maximum penalty for his crimes, both he and his son (Cody Hall). These people are dangerous to our community.

It's all of our business. There's a reason felons aren't allowed to own guns and clearly this man has zero respect for our laws. Do you really think this is the only time he's committed a felony since being put on probation or parole whichever the case may be? I'm sure it's NOT the first time, it's just the first time he got caught. Whose house or building was he planning to shoot up next with THOUSANDS of rounds of ammo that as a felon he was barred from having.

The best place for him is prison so the rest of us are safe.

They're dangerous people and we can help keep each other safe by NOT minding our business. I was driving down Hopyard recently when I observed a car speeding-way beyond anything I usually see. I called the nonemergency Pleasanton police number after getting the license plate. Maybe we can help save lives if we don't mind our own business.

You nailed it. And since the police can't be everywhere, we should do what you did to help. I was behind a drunk driver before and called PPD and as I followed, they found us and went to his house seconds after he got there to talk to him. They were great. Because I was watching when he got out of his car, they even asked me to describe what he was wearing. The PPD didn't ignore me and took it very seriously. I really appreciated it and wouldn't hesitate to call again. Thanks for the reminder Emily.

I agree with Joanne. Both of the Halls are in the justice system and it is moving along. Let it work. Get a hobby. Fix yourself. If you really want to be outraged, channel it towards the San Ramon attorney who hit and killed the man visiting from China, ran from the scene, hid his car in his garage and tried to get it secretly repaired, and never came forward until the police tracked the vehicle parts he left at the scene to his car. This coward has done nothing but abuse the system to his benefit to the point it seems unlikely Bo Hu's family will ever get justice.

To "Sigh",

You can rest assured that both the Halls are doing everything they can to avoid justice, just like the guy from San Ramon. We need to stay vigilant and watch all three cases carefully.

You people should read what you have written and reflect on it. It is beyond sadness that a woman lost her life and very sad that a young man will live with it for the rest of his life. The court system will do its duty no matter how much you write here. In all probably with this being his first offense he will get a little time and some probation. Nothing more and nothing less.

I think that 15 years to life is the standard for 2nd degree murder. And, no, don't count on the court showing him leniency because it's the first time he's ever murdered someone.

Keep an eye out on everybody, because your next door neighbor might not be who you think they are. I followed one of our neighbors for a few evenings because something in my gut told me he wasn't quite right. It wasn't what he said or did, I just didn't like his smile, if you know what I mean. And then the Obama sticker which told me something was off.

The first night he took his kids for ice cream. The second night he drove to the am/pm for some groceries. But the third night I followed him to a massage parlor. Of course I called the police and told his wife. Because that's what good neighbors do!

You only get 10 years for first degree murder in this state with no prioress and eligible for parole after 7. He might get 2 or 3 max and after credit for time served might get a year....... Another state and he gets 15 firm.

Look at the armchair F. Lee Bailey's coming out of the sewer pipes. You keep kidding yourselves with all that nonsense that you're spewing out. You think it's going to be all good with drinks and dancing at some imaginary release party? Yeah and the judge will throw him the keys to a Porsche and tell everybody to get over it right? Then everyone will blow clouds till the break of dawn huh? The only driving or blowing that's going down now is in his jail cell, or should we call it his wedding chambers? Who's his daddy now? Hmmm, sucks to be you at the other end of the stick for a change. Get used to it punk, this is your life now!

I see the pitchforks and clubs are still out. I sure hope this type of venting makes you happy...I guess it's better than taking your pent up anger out by beating your spouse or kicking the dog, but your vindictive comments only demean your 'cause'.
