Jim A. Hall


A Drew County man has been held in contempt of court and jailed following nearly two years of Facebook postings about his domestic issues.

Jim A. Hall was ordered in November 2012 to cease and desist his Facebook postings about his former inlaws and their business. He was also ordered to stay away from the family and their business.

Hall failed to do so and Circuit Court Judge Don Glover on Tuesday found him in contempt of court and sentenced him to 30 days in jail, 25 of which were suspended.

Hall has also created Facebook accounts and posted comments critical of the court and law enforcement’s handling of allegations related to his domestic issues. The contempt ruling and jail time was for violating the cease and desist order, not because he was critical of the court and law enforcement.
