Sherry Hall was two months into the job as a Georgia police officer when she came across a scary black man who shot her before escaping into the woods, sparking an intense manhunt that was followed by the usual condemnation of Black Lives Matter on social media.
But as we’ve seen so many times before, Hall had fabricated the entire story.
And now the Jackson police officer is facing four felonies.
Hall, who was careful to keep her dash camera turned off, did not realize investigators could still find ways to expose her lies.
Or maybe she didn’t expect the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to spend 600 hours investigating the shooting that took place on September 13, 2016 where she reportedly was shot in the abdomen, but protected by her bulletproof vest.
According to a statement released from the GBI Friday.
Earlier today, the GBI secured four criminal arrest warrants through the Superior Court of the Towaliga Judicial Circuit on Sherry Hall. They are as follows: False Statements, Tampering with Evidence, Interference with Government Property, and Violation of Oath of Office.
After following the leads and evidence, the investigation has now revealed that there is no, and never was, a suspect shooter at large in Jackson, Georgia.
The GBI was requested by the Jackson Police Department to independently investigate both the Officer Involved Shooting/ Use of Force and the alleged Aggravated Assault of a Police Officer. The GBI Milledgeville Office committed all available assets and resources, which included personnel from two regional offices. To date, there have been in excess of 600 investigative work hours expended on this investigation and certain aspects of this investigation are still ongoing.
The alleged incident began at approximately 12:08 a.m. on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 when Sherry Hall called out over the radio that she had been shot. Several law enforcement officers from the Jackson Police Department and the Butts County Sheriff’s Office immediately responded to assist in the officer down call. Sherry Hall alleged through three separate interviews with the GBI that she was shot by a black male subject who was positioned near the wood line at the cul-de-sac on Camellia Court. Sherry Hall further advised that she did not engage her in car video and audio recording equipment.
As part of this investigation, the GBI solicited input from the manufacturer of the in car camera system as well as a GBI Digital Forensic Investigator, in an effort to further this investigation. Video and audio evidence was recovered from the hard drive of the unit. After hours of subsequent examination of that video evidence, it was revealed that inconsistences existed with regard to Sherry Hall’s statements, witness statements, physical evidence, and later examination of forensic evidence.
As of late Friday, Hall was staying in “private facility, of her own volition,” where she will be arrested upon release.
Hall who began working at the Jackson Police Department on July 3, 2016 previously worked with the Griffin Police Department as well as with the Butts County Sheriff’s Office.
In the 1990s, before she went into law enforcement, she was charged with first degree criminal damage to property, which is a felony. She was fined $1,700 and served five years of probation.
But that obviously had no effect on her ability to be hired as a law enforcement officer.
Below is a lengthy interview she conducted with CBS 46 after the shooting where she proves herself to be a natural liar.
