Ohio man to escape prosecution in attack on mother at Villages home

Collin Hull

A 28-year-old Ohio man will avoid prosecution in an attack on his mother last year in the Village of Hacienda.

Collin Nathaniel Hull, of Columbus, Ohio had been arrested Nov. 28 by Sumter County sheriff’s deputies.

Law enforcement had been called that morning to a home on Cervantes Place in the Village of Hacienda where they found Hull’s mother “visibly shaken and crying.” She had suffered a cut the size of a quarter between her left eye and temple. The cut was showing signs of swelling and bruising, according to the arrest report.

She had been alerted that Hull had been posting “random ramblings” on Twitter.

She went into Hull’s room and asked to see his phone. After looking at his phone, she asked Hull “if he needed to go see a doctor for help,” report said.

Hull looked at her and without saying anything punched her in the face. He then left the residence.

Last month in Sumter County Court, the prosecutor’s office announced no information would be filed in the case.

“Although there was probable cause for an arrest, after reviewing the facts and circumstances of the case the likelihood of conviction at a criminal jury trial is slight. The victim, the defendant’s mother, signed a waiver of prosecution. The victim has since refused to return calls from the Office of the State Attorney and resides out of state,” State Attorney Brad King wrote in a court filing.
