Boy on trial for murder of neo-Nazi dad

2012-10-30 13:00

Riverside — A boy who was 10 years old when his white supremacist father was shot in the head and killed while he slept is standing trial for murder.

Opening statements are expected on Tuesday in Superior Court in Riverside.

Jeff Hall was shot to death in his home last year. He was a regional leader of the National Socialist Movement who led rallies at a synagogue and day labour site.

Prosecutors want a judge to find the boy murdered Hall and keep him locked up as long as possible. They cite a history of violent behaviour.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Michael Soccio says he does not believe Hall's white supremacist beliefs caused the boy to kill.

Messages left for the boy's attorney, Matthew Hardy, were not immediately returned.

    Really amateur reporting....

    This prosecutor will do anything for political gain. Even send a 10 year old boy to jail for life if he could. How can the ideology followed by the father not have impacted on the boy, if he indeed killed his racist facist violent father. Since this prosecutor holds political office, what I said in another comment holds water here too. All politicians are whores. Their sense of entitlement will drive them to do anything for personal gain.

      do u know this prosecutor personally? do you know every singel fact about this case? what theboy was like before he kille his dad? why he killed him? d you know his IQ level? i assume you know every fact to jump to conclusions... and what does the prosecutor have to do with any political affiliation.... he stands in the name of justice. maybe th kid was psychologicly deranged because of abuse - then obviously he will not be sent away. and go read the damn child justice act as well as act 55 o 77 and even the criminal law act.. go educate yourself...never assume
