A court in Eugene, Oregon convicted Amy Verlee Hall, 46, on charges of assault, criminal trespassing, harassment, burglary, and disorderly conduct.
According to KLCC, this stemmed from Hall’s refusal to wear a mask in a cookie store, violating that store’s health regulations.
From KLCC: On Nov. 3, 2021, Hall and an accomplice, Rick Collin, confronted Deirdre Stirpe inside Crumb Together over her store’s pandemic face mask policy, which was in compliance with Oregon’s statewide directive at the time. Things turned violent, and after thrashing and screaming with the woman, Hall and Collin left the store with Stirpe’s bat.
Not surprisingly, the guilty party captured video of the incident and, too dumb to realize they were CLEARLY in the wrong, showed it to the police.
And yes, a business is, in fact, a “private” place, and the store’s proprietor was well within her right to require customers to wear a mask.
Moreover, it’s obvious from the video the trespassers were looking for trouble as Hall got physical first and refused to politely leave when asked.
In addition to Hall’s 46-month sentence, she will be on three years probation after she’s released.
The video is below.
