Judge Millard wound up sentencing Hall to six months in jail.
Hall told My Fox Houston, “When she said ‘I remand you to the Harris County Jail for 180 days’ my mouth just dropped. I can’t be there for my son in jail. I can’t pay child support in jail. This is not in the best interest of the child.”
Now Quanell X, who is a community activist, has involved himself in Hall’s case and is demanding that the state’s judicial board investigate this travesty of justice. “The court failed the child,” he told My Fox Houston. “The court failed Mr. Hall. The system broke down.”
Judge Millard says that a motion of reconsideration could have been filed which would have allowed her to hear both Hall and his ex wife’s arguments again.
Meanwhile Hall, who must turn himself in to begin serving his 180-day sentence in a few days, is having his attorney appeal the case.
