Wed Apr 5 2017 (Updated 04/08/17)Court Support for Dejuan Hall, Brutally Beaten by Vallejo Police
Wed Apr 5 2017 (Updated 04/08/17)Trial Set for June 19 for Dejuan Hall, Victim of Vallejo Police Brutality
Dejuan Hall was brutally beaten by Vallejo police officer Spencer Muniz-Bottomley on March 10, then charged with battery on a police officer and resisting arrest. Hall does not face any charges related to the reason police were called on him as he was not breaking any laws. Spencer Bottomley was named in another brutality case, Derrick Lamoris Shields vs. City of Vallejo, for an incident on the night of April 11, 2016. The statement of claims from that night in 2016 is strikingly similar to the brutality captured on video in March.
Hall's next court appearance is on Friday, April 7 at 3:00 PM in Dept. 9 Room 209 at the Fairfield Courthouse. This court appearance is for his pretrial hearing, pitchess motion, and 1538.5 motion to suppress. Supporters are encouraged to come show support. Advocates state, "Pretrial hearings are important to attend as lack of pre-trial court support gives the District Attorney's office leverage to intimidate innocent people into taking plea deals."
On April 7, Hall's trial date was moved to June 19.
