September 15, 2011

Forty year old Michael Hall of Middletown, Ohio has been found guilty of three counts of Rape. Hall molested a young girl from the time that she was eight years old until she bravely disclosed the abuse to her mother at age ten. After a thorough investigation, Middletown Police Department Detective Fred Shuemake arrested Hall. Hall waived his right to a jury trial. The Honorable Judge Patricia Oney listened to the evidence and rendered Hall guilty of all charges. Hall will be in front of Judge Oney on September 19, 2011 at 12:00 p.m. He faces the possibility of life in prison without parole.

“I am always proud of Assistant Prosecutor Jennifer Muench-McElfresh, head of our Child Assault Task Force, for the way she brings justice to our youngest victims,” said Prosecutor Michael T. Gmoser. “Her dedication, compassion and commitment should serve as a warning to those who chose to prey on children. We will not tolerate such deviant behavior that targets our young and robs them of their innocence and childhood.”
