FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Alisha Hall sat stunned in a Genesee County courtroom not believing what she was hearing as the jury read the verdict in her child sexual abuse case.

"We, the jury find the defendant, count one criminal sexual conduct first degree: guilty." said the jury foreman. "Count two child sexual abusive activity: guilty."

Her husband Daniel Hall heard his verdict yesterday. He was visibly shaken as the rest of the verdict was read; guilty on all charges including criminal sexual conduct first degree.

"Guilty on all charges is what we wanted," David Leyton said, Genesee County Prosecutor. "There was a bump in the road. The possibility of a mistrial, because of a discovery issue, but we got through that."

That bump caused the judge in the case to declare a mistrial on Tuesday and to start the process from the beginning, but the prosecution filed a motion to reverse that decision.

"My folks got together, told the judge what the law is, the judge listened and everything worked out," Leyton said.

Prosecutors say child sexual abuse cases are sometimes hard to get out of your mind – especially this case.

"I'm speechless when I think about it. Every time it's been spoken of in the community, people are outraged and I think this jury did the appropriate thing in convicting both of them of these very serious crimes," Leyton said.
