Former Oregon WR Jalen Hall could face life in prison for armed robbery

Jalen Hall, a 19-year-old, was released by the Oregon Ducks earlier this year after being arrested in Los Angeles for what we now know was alleged home invasion robbery.

TMZ is reporting Hall could face life in prison if he’s convicted on all counts — he’s being charged with “3 counts of home invasion robbery, 2 counts kidnapping to commit robbery and 1 count of 1st-degree burglary.”

“Officials say Jalen was armed with a semi-automatic handgun — and threatened 3 people inside the home before making off with jewelry and other valuables.”

Bail was set at $2 million due to the seriousness of these charges (not to mention flight risk), for Hall and the other man he was with when police arrested them following a search that involved an airship to track them down after they fled the scene of the crime.

Prior to his arrest, Hall was one of the highest-profile recruits Oregon hauled in for 2018. A former four-star receiver out of Long Beach Poly high school, the freshman was expected to be a big-time player for the Ducks.
