A Contra Costa County woman messed with the wrong person when she decided to defraud movie star Jet Li and his disaster-relief charity, One Foundation.

Today, Sharee M. Hall, a Rodeo resident, was sentenced to six-plus years in prison after she was convicted in October of wire fraud and money laundering

in after stealing some $200,000 from One Foundation. She was also ordered to pay $94,325 in restitution, according to federal prosecutors.

After an eight-day trial, the jury concluded that Hall participated in a scheme to rip off One Foundation by transferring an unauthorized $94,325 from the charity's bank account to Hall's personal HSBC bank account. In addition, she bought a cashier's check for $102,500 using money stolen from the charity.

Hall, 34, was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 8, 2011, and has been in custody since her arrest on March 25, 2011. She already has 13 other felony convictions for various fraud and theft-related crimes from her past.

She received a particularly harsh sentence this time because prosecutors say she lied in her testimony during trial.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
