A state Appellate court has ordered a new trial in Steuben County for a man convicted of attempted murder.
That ruling was handed down from the State Supreme Court involving 40-year-old Randy Hall. Hall was convicted by a jury in August of 2005 on charges of attempted murder and other felony counts to include 2nd degree assault, burglary and possessing a weapon. He is currently serving his 23 year sentence at Shawangunk state prison in Ulster County.
In Hall’s appeal, filed by The Davison Law Office in Canandaigua, it was argued that the Steuben County court had failed to establish a reasonable basis for restraining the defendant before the jury. Hall had been required to wear a stun belt during the trial.
The court rejected other issues that were raised.
