Armed Homeowner Stops What I Can Only Call a Career Criminal.

It has been a bad year for this guy. Burglar shot by homeowner sent to prison | WNCN

He got arrested after he got shot by a homeowner who found him in the home stealing stuff. When the police caught up to him, he had loot from another burglary in his vehicle. He was sentenced on both burglaries.

But here is the thing…

He was out on bail for previous aggravated burglary. AND…

He has six prior convictions for aggravated burglary and burglary.

His parole sentence and the sentence for both new crimes will run consecutively. It all ads up to more than 20 years in prison.

I want to say that I am surprised he was not in jail, but I’m not. Not really. Not given the state of our criminal justice system.
