D.A. says shooting case that resulted in hung jury will be retried


A Spalding County jury was unable to reach a verdict in the case of State of Georgia v. Hall, which resulted in a mistrial being declared.

According to a statement made by the Griffin Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office, the jury deliberated “several hours” on Thursday and Friday.

“Hall was charged with shooting the victim in the case multiple times,” the statement read. “The team for the prosecution was led by Assistant District Attorney Donna GoPaul.”

The District Attorney’s Office has declared its intent to retry to case in January.

“While we were obviously disappointed that the jury could not reach a verdict, we thank them for their service. My office will never stop in its fight to bring justice to the victims of gang violence,” said District Attorney Ben Coker. “These cases are difficult, and I am so proud of my office and the work that they did on this case. Together, with law enforcement, we will continue in our pursuit to get gangs off of the street and make Spalding County safer and better.”
