Charles Hall Released - 1876-03-06

Jersey Journal – March 6, 1876

Charles Hall, a noted desperado of Camden, was released from the State Penitentiary two weeks ago, after serving a twelve months’ imprisonment. On Thursday he got drunk and violently assaulted his brother, beating him in a brutal manner. Later he cruelly beat an old man named Levi North. Afterward he quarreled with Alexander Peacock and attempted to shoot him, but was prevented by a bystander, who threw up his arm just as he was about to shoot. Still later he met Constable Hogan in the street, and drawing his revolver, fired four shots at him, one of which lodged in his hip. The desperado was finally arrested and lodged in jail.
