Former Lake County chief judge David Hall beats his DUI but ends up with an unrelated death sentence - Lou Gehrig’s disease

This case has BAD MOJO all over it... The young cop who pepper sprayed the judge during the arrest ended up dying a few weeks later, then Chief Judge David Hall (the offender) ends up with one of the worse diseases you can get - Lou Gehrig’s disease - a slow disease that just eats up your body.... It's almost like this incident was cursed...

Former Lake County Chief Judge David Hall was found not guilty today of driving under the influence of alcohol, stemming from his arrest in Vernon Hills more than four years ago.

But Hall was convicted of resisting arrest in the April 2008 traffic stop, during which an officer pepper-sprayed him. Hall was chief judge at the time of the arrest but later stepped down. Now suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease, which has affected his speech, the judge retired from the bench just this month.

Earlier today during the one-day trial, an emergency-room doctor from Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville testified that Hall appeared to be intoxicated when the doctor examined him after the traffic stop. Hall had been taken to the hospital after he was pepper-sprayed and complained of chest pains.

But Hall’s lawyers had earlier succeeded in having a blood sample taken at the hospital thrown out of evidence after arguing that it had been mishandled. The DUI case was also impeded by the fact that the officer who pulled him over and used the pepper spray passed away a few weeks later.

Hall was sentenced to 100 hours of community service, the minimum allowable and 18 months of conditional discharge, a form of probation. He must also pay a $1,000 fine and court costs. Hall could have received a year in jail for the conviction of resisting arrest.

I agree, dick. It is (appears) cursed.

The DUI laws are cursed. In Chicago, we have three (3) phase to screw a person: impoundment, SSH (summary suspension hearing), and of course what you handle, the DUI trial.


Everyone, police officer to judge to painter/plumber to business owner, get hit with the (very?) harsh DUI laws.


Pepper spraying a judge? Yikes. More courage than me.


Everyone needs to R E L A X. So what if someone had a few/couple beers. You get these over zealous officers eager to arrest everyone.

Are you sure the jude isn't dying of AIDS? He sure looks like he's got the skinny from how he appears in his photo.

And double-fuck this judge again for good measure for thinking he was above the law and for putting that officer in that predicament. I hope your death truly is long and painful.

well for those that don't know
DUI & domestic battery are the two
biggest moneymakers in lake county
the reason?
it's gear toward the common working slob
not the hardcore boozer
reason? they know a working person will be clawing kicking and screaming for to get bail so he can show up at work the next day
any lawyer you try to get in lake county it an automatic 2,000 just to get him,(and we havent gone to court yet)then to the real shot in the ass you have to go to NICASA
for "treatment" *nice to know that almost every judge in lake county is on the board of directors*
and you might have to get the interlock on your car more $
see the hardcore drinker well he just goes to jail and gets out and does it again
lakecounty has made a special room just for handling DUI's
it makes them that much $$$
( its the only thing that keeps waukegan going)

They say in Lake County that a DUI can run $10,000 by the time you get all done. It is a great big moneymaker, The drunk school as they call it is the biggest joke. That's right folks have a few drinks and be past .10 and you have to go to school and get this they think your an alcoholic. Back in the good old days in Lake County unless you were involved in a major accident or were a complete asshole they would usually plea it down to a couple of moving violations with one suspended. I got pulled over in the old days pre 1980 in Lake County as high as Otis of Mayberry and was given a verbal warning after driving the wrong way on a one way street. That was before the big money started in the DUI business for the villages with huge fine income.

I bet the judge was a huge fucking asshole on the stop, the copper didnt know who he was, I dont know all the fucking judges either, I do know the shitty anti-police ones though.

If the judge was acting right things would have turned out differently Im sure, for both of them.

Fuck you jagoff. I had my partner killed by a drunk, burned to death after the pussy ran from scene. So fuck the drunk judge and any other dickheads who can't control their drinking and need to drive. I have no problem you having a few cold ones , but you drive drunk , all rules gone.
I have no patience for judges with attitudes, especially when dui. Never had a cop tell me what a wonderful guy the judge was when that cop was in a trick bag.

Why? Because they did their job , you lazy fuck. Go work for Starbucks if 'police work' is too much for you.
If some drunk (judge/whoever) hurts my family member or friend, because some lazy prick like you doesn't want to do their job, a lawsuit would be the least of your worries.

The keyword here being "drunk." No one is defending "drunk" driving. Special emphasis on "drunk."


What some of us were saying is that it is very easy (too easy) to breach the .07 threshold. And those in breach of .07---it is .08 or above---are neither a danger to themselves nor to society.


The SOS's own materials as well as ISP's materials show that people between .08 and .1 are NOT the ones causing the accidents.


The DUI laws need to be reformed because we are equated completely without reason or justification people who had a couple/few beers with "drunk" driving.
