An Adairville man arrested last year was sentenced Thursday, June 23 to 30 years in prison for breaking in and sexually assaulting a 69-year-old woman.
Jeffery Wayne Hall, 44, was sentenced on three counts of first-degree sexual abuse, one count of first-degree burglary, kidnapping, first-degree attempted sodomy, fourth-degree assault and third-degree criminal mischief.
Hall was arrested on July 9, 2015, at 2:14 p.m. soon after the Logan County Sheriff’s Department and the Adairville Police Department responded to a sexual assault on South Main Street in Adairville. The victim called police after being held for over two hours with her life being threatened by Hall, who was immediately detained near the residence and was arrested.
According to a police report, Hall had made forcible entry into the female’s home. While inside, he then physically assaulted the victim multiple times, causing injuries to the victim’s facial area. Further investigation showed that Hall also sexually assaulted the victim on multiple occasions during an extended period of time.
Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Justin Crocker handled the case in a Logan County Circuit Court.
Detective Kevin Bibb of the Logan County Sheriff’s Department was the investigating officer. In Bibb’s arrest report, Hall admitted to breaking into the woman’s home and to having hepatitis C.
