Hall was "of otherwise exemplary character", he added, and the investigation had come "as a particularly bitter blow at this stage in his life".
Aaaw i bet it has, such a shame. Gotta laugh at that. Other than being a rapist sex offender he had an exemplary character and nice chap all round.
He complained of a heart problem and said he would be "very lucky to survive another couple of years". Hall went on to say he hoped he survived those two years so he could "regain my honour and reputation and, more than ever, my life".
"Fortunately I have a very loving family and they are very supportive. I think but for their love I might have been constrained to take my own life. They have encouraged me to fight on, to fight the charges and regain my reputation and good name and whatever I have represented to this country down the years."
Hall's then lawyer, Louise Straw, had previously described him as the victim of a "clear pursuit of celebrity".
Where the fucking hell do these cunts get off? A supportive family? What a family that supports fucking sex cases?
