Greenwood, MS: In Leflore County Circuit Court, Greenville native, Isiah Hall, pled guilty to thirteen (13) counts of automobile burglary and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Hall was indicted for the fourteen (14) different charges as a Habitual Offender by the January 2018 grand jury.

The Leflore County Sheriff’s Department thoroughly investigated reports of auto burglaries in the Leflore County area. After being stopped for reckless driving and escaping on foot, Leflore County Sheriff deputies not only pursued and located Hall, but they also discovered items that had been stolen from the cars earlier in the day. Hall had previously convicted of automobile burglary, credit card fraud, and taking possession of taking a motor vehicle.

Under Mississippi law, burglary of an automobile carries a maximum penalty of seven (7) years served in the Mississippi Department of Corrections. As a Habitual Offender, the defendant is required to serve the maximum penalty for the crime with which he is sentenced. In addition, the sentence shall not be reduced or suspended nor shall the defendant be eligible for parole or probation.

Based on Hall’s priors and the proof of the fourteen different crimes, Senior Circuit Judge Ashley Hines sentenced Hall to serve a total of twenty-eight (28) years in the Mississippi Department of Corrections followed by five (5) years on Post Release Supervision.
