DONE DUAL: Giants confirm new signing of key star $45.06 Million on blockbuster with rivals for two year contract; due to…

Former player for the New York Giants in the early 1960s, Clyde “Peter” Hall, was recently given a five-year prison sentence.

Hall took a plea deal and acknowledged trying to sell pills laced with fentanyl in New York City. Federal Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil then sentenced him. Hall allegedly attempted to sell the cocaine to a Drug Enforcement Administration informant, according to the prosecution.”I am incredibly sorry to all my loved ones for letting them down with my actions,” Hall told the jury. “I am sorry to the court for my actions, and I am remorseful for my conduct.” According to the New York Post, Hall was on a “compassionate release” from prison after being found guilty of financial fraud charges at the time of the attempted narcotics transaction.

Hall’s criminal history was mentioned by the prosecution as support for a minimum 10-year sentence. Manhattan Assistant Attorney Ni Quia stated in a sentence submission letter that Hall chose to “reengage in crime” not long after he was released from prison.

Authorities said evidence showed Hall planned to sell six kilograms of fentanyl and could have sold up to 11 kilograms based on what was found in his apartment.

“I have had a lot of time to think about how my life is in its final chapters and really give thought to what matters most,” Hall said.

“For me, that is family and my relationships. For me, it’s about time spent with those people and, unfortunately, I have regrets about the fact that I have not been able to be with them for nearly enough time, especially recently.

Hall faced the possibility of life in prison prior to agreeing to the plea deal. He admitted to the lesser charge of intent to distribute 40 grams of a controlled substance containing fentanyl.

Hall’s attorney, Jason Goldman, expressed gratitude for the minimum sentence.

“The court today saw Mr. Hall for who he truly is, an 85-year-old man who deserves to spend his final years surrounded by family, not prison walls,” Goldman said in a statement. “We are grateful that the absolute minimum sentence was handed down.”
