EDGEFIELD CTY, S.C. -- Ollie Hall, a former Edgefield County Sheriff's Deputy and Bailiff, will not see his sentence change in the death of Greg Jones.
Last week, Judge Cordell Maddox sentenced Hall to 10 years in prison. Hall pleaded down from a murder charge to a voluntary murder charge. The judge suspended Hall's sentence to 2 years, house arrest with electronic monitoring. That meant he would spend no time behind bars.
The South Carolina Attorney General's office filed an oral motion after that sentence. Today they told News 12 they had some questions about the sentencing, but after research determined that the questions were irrelevant. The office withdrew the oral motion, so the sentence stands.
