The Plaquemines Parish District Attorney reports that on August 25, 2023, Corinthian Hall, age 28, was found guilty by a jury of Third Degree Rape. He was remanded to jail and a bond of $200,000 was set by Judge Michael Clement. Sentencing is set for September 27, 2023.
On November 25, 2016, Y.R., the victim, a Private First Class in the United States Marine Corps (USMC), was sexually assaulted after a gathering with co-workers at Hall’s barracks. The victim had consumed alcohol resulting in her passing out. Upon waking the victim found evidence of a sexual assault.
On August 1, 2018, the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office (PPSO) was contacted by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service regarding a complaint that was received from the Marine Forces Reserve Sexual Assault Response Coordinator that one of their Marines had been sexually assaulted.
On August 8, 2018, after examining the evidence PPSO issued a Misdemeanor Summons for Misdemeanor Sexual Battery to Corinthian Hall, a Lance Corporal in USMC, stationed in Belle Chasse. The Plaquemines Parish District’s Attorney interviewed the victim, and on January 8, 2021, the charges were amended to Third Degree Rape. Third Degree Rape is punishable by imprisonment at hard labor, without the benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence, for not more than twenty-five years.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Mary Slavich Touzet and Jason Napoli. They were assisted by felony trial assistants Tamara Davis and Viktorija Dekovic, and Rae Riley, the victim assistance coordinator.
