The man who has recovered as many as 500 stolen vehicles in Anchorage has another court hearing on April 17. Just prior to his last court date on April 1, he declined to sign a plea that that said he would not look for cars or have contact with criminals, knowingly or unknowingly.
He says that the plea deal offered by prosecutors is impossible for anyone to keep. No one knows when they might have contact with a criminal. If he’s going to help people find their stolen vehicles, he’s going to run into criminals.
For the past 20 months, Hall has been fighting charges that he was driving recklessly while chasing a stolen truck. Hall has a pro bono attorney who is helping him as he fights the reckless endangerment charge and the $1,000 fine and 30 days in jail that could go with it.
