POSSESSION OF HANDGUN BY FELON
ALTERCATION OF ITEMS WITH DISTINGUISHING NUMBERS
SIMPLE POSSESSION OF MARIJUANA

These are by no means all of his alleged crimes or arrests. He was extradited to California in the past for charges stemming from an earlier rape conviction. Why he has been allowed to become Dunlap’s untouchable criminal is unknown but speculation has included the typical ” He is an informant”. If he is I will say that I doubt he isn’t framing other people. This is the criminal that causes nightmares for law abiding citizens. People feel powerless when he is allowed to walk the streets.
