Cassie Hall update

Some of you Hillsters may remember Cassie Hall, the woman who had sex with her then-husband while their young son watched. Hall was apparently claiming that her husband had raped her, but the police found her story suspicious enough that both parents were booked for child abuse. We had a spirited discussion about this in the comments. Although it was generally agreed that the Halls weren't exactly the sharpest couple in the trailer court, there was some disagreement over whether the proposed five-year sentence was a bit much, or whether the Halls were sick perverts who deserved to have the book thrown at them.

Cassie Hall divorced her husband, found an even bigger loser for her new boyfriend, and proceeded to justify the opinions of those who felt she was sick and abusive:

A judge Friday sentenced an Edwardsville woman to 18 years in prison for her part in the brutal sexual assault of an 8-year-old male family member.

Sgt. Carol Doyle of the Madison County Sheriff's Department testified at a sentencing hearing in Madison County Circuit Court that Cassie Hall, 32, and her boyfriend committed many different sexual acts on the boy, including sexual penetration using sexual devices and forcing him to perform oral sexual acts on them.


The boy had been beaten and verbally abused, and lived in filthy conditions in a mobile home where several other families lived in the 3100 block of Sand Road, Doyle said.

The article also notes that Hall's current boyfriend, Jacob Fife, was a registered sex offender who had been given two years probation in 2003 for predatory criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sex abuse.

Nothing further to say here. The disgusting nature of these acts speaks for itself.
