You already know what's coming.
In 2000 Miller was charged with two counts of assault and one count of vandalism. He was found guilty by Judge Rawl and sentenced to the thirty days he had allegedly served in jail. The curious thing is he was arrested on 21 February and the case was disposed of two weeks later. Hard to serve 30 days in two weeks.
In 2001 Miller was charged with Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol, Unlawful Possession of a Pistol by a Person Under 21 and Possession of Crack Cocaine. He pled guilty in August of 2001 to unlawful carrying and possession of crack. Judge Smoak sentenced Miller to 1 year on the weapon charge, suspended in favor of probation. On the crack charge Miller was sentenced to two years, suspended in favor of five years probation. The other charge was dismissed.
In November of 2001 Miller picked up his first probation violation. That didn't take long.
In 2003 Miller was charged with 2nd Degree Burglary. The charge was dismissed at the preliminary hearing with a note that the officer didn't show up. the case parties section listed the victim as the person who should have testified.
In January of 2005 Miller caught his second probation violation.
In July of 2005 he was charged with 1st Degree Burglary. This charge was dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.
In 2006 Miller was charged again with Possession of Crack. The charge was dismissed at the preliminary hearing.
In 2007 Miller was charged with Criminal Domestic Violence of a High & Aggravated Nature, Kidnapping and Possession of a Weapon During a Violent Crime. He pled guilty to the CDVHAN and was sentenced by Judge Dennis to ten years, suspended on service of one year and five years of probation.
The other charges were dismissed.
Isn't it a wonderful thing how judges keep suspending sentences in favor of probation for folks who are already on probation or have been on probation two or three or ten times in the past?
Anybody else out there pissed off? We are.
