DEN­TON — Rus­sell Lin­wood Hall Jr., 46, of Greens­boro, was sen­tenced on Oct. 27 to 40 years in prison by Caroline County Cir­cuit Court Judge Jonathan Newell af­ter be­ing con­victed on two counts of sec­ond-de­gree rape, two-counts of sec­ond-de­gree as­sault and third-de­gree sex of­fense.

Ac­cord­ing to the Caroline County State’s At­tor­ney’s Of­fice, Hall was con­victed af­ter a two-day jury trial on Aug. 25 on charges from two in­ci­dents oc­cur­ring be­tween June and Oc­to­ber 2015.

The sen­tence was the max­i­mum sen­tence al­low­able and the rec­om­men­da­tion of the State’s At­tor­ney’s Of­fice.

“The pros­e­cu­tion rec­om­mended the max­i­mum penalty on both counts of rape due to the level of harm and the spe­cial cir­cum­stances of the vic­tim in this mat­ter,” said Caroline County State’s At­tor­ney Joe Ri­ley.

“The State’s At­tor­ney’s Of­fice for Caroline County wishes to thank the Adult Pro­tec­tive Ser­vices divi­sion of the Depart­ment of So­cial Ser­vices for their work on the case.”
