Ten-Year-Old Charged With Murder In Slaying Of His Neo-Nazi Father In Riverside

By: Wallin & Klarich

A 10-year-old Riverside boy was charged for murder in Riverside on May 4, 2011 in the slaying of his father, Jeff Hall, a neo-Nazi leader. Hall was the leader of the Southwest chapter of the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi organization, which has held rallies in Riverside and on the U.S.-Mexico border. The boy is charged with intentionally shooting Hall inside his Riverside home. He also was charged with an enhancement for using a gun in the commission of the killing.
During his appearance in Riverside Juvenile Court the shaggy, blond-haired boy sat at an attorney’s table in shackles, wearing an orange Juvenile Hall uniform. The small, skinny, baby-faced boy was slouched in a chair, dwarfed by his attorney. If found guilty of the charges, the boy could remain in juvenile hall until he is 18, or in another youth detention facility until he is 25. Authorities have not said what prompted the shooting, but court records show the boy previously had lashed out violently at home and in school. His public defender told the judge that the defense was weighing several possible pleas, including not guilty by reason of insanity. The prosecutor in the case indicated that it is extremely rare to charge such a young child with murder.
The boy’s biological mother, Leticia Neal, said that she was considering hiring a private attorney to take over the case form the public defender’s office.
