Case summaryAdd info | Back to top
LDS Ronald Devere Hall was a Seminary teacher and Manti Pageant Director. The
following is a narrative from the family victimized by this man. “In 1998 1 was told by my
oldest teenage daughter that “Grandpa Hall” had been touching her for several years.
Charges were filed (ST. George), went to trial (ST George), the entire Hall family perjured
them-selves on the stand and of course, blamed me as a bitter ex-wife. Needless, to say
with a jury of Mormons, were we really going to get a fair trial? Not at least the first time.
Fast forward to approx. 2003 and he was again accused and charged with sexual abuse
(Delta) with one of his granddaughters of his second oldest daughter. He was sent to prison
for a number of years and on the Utah Registry for Sexual Offenders for a number of years
“If there is anyone out there who had contact with this man and never confided it to
someone. …please heed my advice and take care of your emotional well-being. Sexual
abuse is prevalent in the church and it’s just covered up by a facade of being a “good,
temple worthy member”.
On March 14, 2005 Hall was convicted and sentenced for “SEXUAL ABUSE OF ACHILD-
ATTEMPTED/3RD DEGREE.” http://www.sexoffenderrecord.com/offender/view/302653
