Portland’s NPR affiliate reports:
A Portland-area woman convicted of assaulting a Eugene cookie shop owner has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison. Today, Lane County Circuit Court Judge Stephen Morgan sentenced 46-year-old Amy Verlee Hall of Gresham to 46 months after a 12-member jury found her guilty of assault, criminal trespass, harassment, burglary, and disorderly conduct on Jan. 31.
On Nov. 3, 2021, Hall and an accomplice, Ricki Collin, confronted Deirdre Stirpe inside Crumb Together over her store’s pandemic face mask policy, which was in compliance with Oregon’s statewide directive at the time. Things turned violent, and after thrashing and screaming with the woman, Hall and Collin left the store with Stirpe’s bat. The pair were arrested shortly after showing their video of the incident to Eugene Police.
Read the full article. Hall’s accomplice remains on the lam and is the subject of arrest warrants in two Oregon counties. As the video report below notes, the couple were seeking out retailers that were complying with the mask ordinance. Watch the clip. My November 2021 report on the incident is here.
ICYMI: A judge sentenced Amy Hall to 46 months in prison, and three years of supervision after her release. A jury found Hall guilty of five charges last month, including assault and criminal trespass from a Nov. 2021 confrontation at Crumb Together. https://t.co/HY3MUYUXZY
