North Charleston man gets 20 years for attempted murder

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A 20-year-old North Charleston man was sentenced to 20 years for an attempted murder and attempted armed robbery that happened in North Charleston in September of 2010.

Circuit Court Judge Kristi Harrington sentenced Denorris Hall to a term of 20 years with the South Carolina Department of Corrections.

Under the sentencing laws, Hall must serve at least 85% of the sentence before he will be eligible for parole.

Hall's co-defendant, Herman Smith, pled guilty to attempted murder and attempted armed robbery last month and testified against Hall during the trial.

Smith remains to be sentenced.

On Sept. 13, 2010, at the corner of Spruill and McMillan Avenue, authorities say Hall and Smith approached the victim who was walking home.

According to court officials, both defendants attempted to rob him at gun point but the victim ran.

Authorities say as the victim fled the defendants fired their guns, striking the victim in the back. Video from a nearby business helped corroborate the victim's version of events.

"This was a ridiculous, senseless crime. The victim was running away and posed no threat to these defendants," Assistant Solicitor Young said. "We are grateful that the victim stood strong and came back from another state to testify. Because of him we were able to bring justice to a cold-hearted criminal."
