Tanner Hall gets deferred sentence on drug charge

BOULDER, Colorado ” Freeskiing star Tanner Hall has been given a six-month deferred sentence after pleading guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia.

The 25-year-old Hall, of Kalispell, Mont., entered his plea Thursday in Boulder County Court.

Carolyn French, a spokeswoman for the Boulder County district attorney’s office, says the plea agreement also calls for 16 hours of community service and payment of court costs.

Hall was cited Dec. 11 after police spotted a group of people doing ski stunts outside a Boulder high school.

Boulder police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley has said officers approached the crowd and smelled marijuana. They asked who had the pot, and Hall stepped up, saying it was his.

Hall has won seven Winter X Games gold medals.
