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.
