Third arrest does not equate the third conviction. Something is amiss in this story.
Three arrests does not mean life sentence. There are stipulations in the "three strikes" law which must be met. It is NOT an automatic life sentence...otherwise people would end up spending life in jail for traffic tickets...such nonsensical drivel.
You are right, it takes three convictions of a felony charge in California. Even then it is miss used, it was supposed to be for violent people. Its used for all kinds of throw away people now. Sure is costing taxpayers in Calif. a bundle now. Can`t you see the geriatric prisons later on??!!

The third time? Forget bail, leave this idiot in Jail.
Sheriff James Metts says this is the third time since September 2007 that deputies have arrested Crossley on criminal charges concerning methamphetamine.
What Sheriff Metts is telling us is that we keep arresting him and the courts keep turning him loose. Will someone lock this guy up....
Metts is a joke when it comes to crimes. I have 2 friends that were victims of crimes, and HIS deputies said they were too busy to investigate, other then write up the incident reports. Way to go Metts, a piece of paper stating they were a victim. Guess I know who I am voting for Sherrif

Well there should have never been a third arrest. It is nice to see our law officers at work. This guy has to know some higher power to get popped three times and get off??? And we ask ourselves why the world is getting so bad????? I hope this jerk gets the book thown at him !!!!!!

If he was originally arrested in September of 2007, he probably hasn't even been to court for the first charge. The backlog our justice system is suffering from can be directly attributed to the land sharks (attorneys).

He really should not have been let off the first time or there would not have been a second or third. Makes no sense.

He was convicted and placed on probation. The probation department arrested him, got the search warrant, and called Lexington County to assist. After the place was searched, Lexington got another warrant and served it on him in jail.

Illegal drugs are destroying the nation and the world. The insanity of it has it's roots in the influence of the Satanic evil angels.

Time is quickly running out at an ever increasing rate.

These people, and many others better be getting their lives in order. There is little time left!

Little time left for the bananna bread in my oven?
Little time left until summer is over?

Little time for what?

Is it time for the beer volcano already?

I sure hope those Satanic evil angels dont mess with my bananna bread.
