A rural Greenwich woman pleaded guilty Monday to attempting to swallow some pills during a Norwalk Police Department investigation.

Justina M. Hall, 25, of 1471 Crescent Road, will be sentenced Dec. 12 for attempted tampering with evidence. The fourth-degree felony is punishable by six to 18 months behind bars and a $5,000 maximum fine. Since Hall has a prior felony conviction, she could face prison time.

Police received a call Sept. 21 from an area motorist who reported seeing Hall shooting heroin in front of a mobile home park. According to the police report, the motorist said Hall was on the steps of an office building, sitting with a syringe to her arm.

"(Officers) found Ms. Hall in an intoxicated condition," Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said Monday.

"Her purse was brought out. She tried to lunge for some pills and tried to swallow them," Leffler said earlier.

Hall, who is out on a personal recognizance bond, is prohibited from having any communication or association with Brooke Turner.

"There is an allegation -- and that's all it is, an allegation, that she supplied the drugs to (Hall)," Leffler said after Monday's hearing.



No prison time, just a little slap on the wrist and a lecture from the judge to be more careful the next time she's shooting up in public.


IF she shows up for court I foresee a plea deal. Ending with a slap on the wrist and some court ordered/tax payer funded REHAB. Just be sure to say you are super sorry and want help to get clean.


Yeah let's put all of the people who are charged with a drug related crime in prison and never give them a second chance! Woo!


Second chances....absolutely. 3rd and 4th chances.....nope.


I agree. If the first time doesn't scare them straight, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. won't either.


EXACTLY. Seems they never want help or to get clean untill they get CAUGHT. I am NO tolerance for drugs or drug crimes. She made her choice and she can live with it.


This girl is a good women. Yes she had problems but just because her problems might be differnt then other peoples doesnt mean she is a bad person!

Everyone has there problems but drugs don't make anything better, it only makes it worse,maybe she will get some help and if prison time makes her learn her lesson then maybe she's better off!!
