SPOKANE, Wash.-- A prolific Spokane criminal is heading back to a prison cell.

A judge sentenced Freddie Hall on drug charges Thursday. Hall and his brothers Teddie and Eddie Ray are notorious for committing crimes across the Spokane area.

Each of the men have been arrested dozens of times in the last 35 years. Hall’s brother Eddie has been arrested 80 times.

Freddie Hall already had seven felony convictions on his record. On his record were charges for burglary, drugs and escaping custody. That number went up to eight on Thursday. Hall entered a guilty plea for possession of drugs. He is going back to jail for one year and one day.
Hall was arrested in June of 2013. Sheriff’s deputies were responding to a report of suspicious activity near Laberry Drive and North Cane Circle.

Someone reported seeing people walking down the road with flashlights and looking into cars. Deputies found 52-year-old Hall holding a small flashlight. Deputies searched Hall and found drugs on him. Hall was arrested.

Hall was in court Thursday morning for a plea and sentencing. He got time in jail for possession of a controlled substance.

The Sheriff’s Office said prosecuting Hall and his brothers has cost tax payers more than one million dollars.

Hall declined an interview with KREM 2 News.
