Shooter released without bailSeptember 17,2013Charges denied
in gun incident
A Danby man was released into the custody of his father Monday after he was arraigned on charges related to an event Saturday in which he allegedly fired three shots into the tailgate of a pickup within a foot of his stepfather.
Judge Theresa DiMauro allowed David L. Hall, 27, to be released without bail after pleading innocent on charges of first-degree aggravated domestic assault with a weapon, possession of stolen property, and unlawful mischief.
Deputy State’s Attorney Rosemary Kennedy argued that Hall, who was held in the Rutland jail on $25,000 bail over the weekend, should have some form of bail imposed.
“He’s facing a serious felony,” Kennedy said.
DiMauro released him with a list of conditions including a 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.
Prosecutors say Hall is accused of showing up at his stepfather and mother’s home, and after getting into a fight with his stepfather, Trevor Davenport, fired three shots into the tailgate of a pickup “less than one foot” away from the victim.
Davenport told officers he snatched the rifle from Hall and broke it against a pillar and then threw Hall to the ground twice before telling him to leave the property.MORE IN This Just InA Rutland woman who spray painted a response to graffiti left outside her house was issued a... Full Story
