Hale faces another round of legal issues
Brooke Hale faces new charge involving failure to keep a child in school.
Legal problems persist for Brooke Hale, despite settling her charges this past week in connection with the stabbing of her husband in front of the VFW last summer. Her new charges involve failure to keep a child in school – charges the district attorney said she did not know were going to be filed when prosecutors allowed her to enter a plea bargain on Wednesday.“We certainly would have brought that up before the judge had we known,” said District Attorney General Lisa Zavogiannis, whose office opposed a judicial diversion which Hale was granted Wednesday by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley.Mrs. Hale was granted a two-year judicial diversion on the reduced charge of facilitation of aggravated assault while the man who stabbed her husband, Jack Redmon, was placed on probation for three years. The plea bargains were offered after Mike Hale recanted his original story about how things happened.
