NJ Man Convicted On Drug Charges After VA Traffic Stop

Posted: Updated:

HOPEWELL, Va. (AP) - A New Jersey man has been convicted of driving 95 miles per hour on a Virginia highway with six unrestrained kids while high on heroin.

Isaiah Hall of East Orange, N.J., pleaded guilty in Hopewell Circuit Court this week to charges stemming from the traffic stop on Interstate 295 last spring.

The 57-year-old pleaded guilty to heroin possession and endangering the lives of his grandchildren. He was found guilty earlier of reckless driving, driving on a suspended license and other charges.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Hall, his adult daughter and the grandchildren were returning to New Jersey after attending a funeral in North Carolina.

Hall is set to be sentenced May 22. Prosecutors say state sentencing guidelines will likely call for no more than a year in jail.
