    The point of that bit is priors don't usually "come in" until sentencing. There's a few rare exceptions, but they aren't really relevant to this.

    I thought the 8th Amendment prohibited the convection of guilty defendants?
    So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time...

    Maybe if we had public spit roastings it would discourage younguns from entering a life of crime.

    I ran into this when I had to sell an enclosed utility trailer left on the (self-storage facility) property. It was pretty banged up from being in an accident and if I had my way would have junked it, but by law I could not do that. I had to try to verify who the actual owner was and notify him that I was going to sell his trailer to pay overdue storage fees before I could put it up for auction, and I also had to provide the buyer with paperwork that would allow him to register it at the DMV. I ended up sending in forms to both the Mississippi and Texas DMVs with various numbers (not all trailers have VINs, or at least legible VINs, so this is fun to figure out), plus use the license plate on it to track down possible owners. Had a Mississippi plate but somehow I ended up a possible Texas registration (plate, not title) as well that may or may not have been the trailer I had, and ended up calling some woman in Laredo, who sounded very unhappy and scared to be hearing from me. She had plated a trailer at one point for her husband's business, but her husband's brother sold it to some other guy from ________ and she hadn't seen it since, and refused to answer any more phone calls or letters.

    Eventually I ended up with enough evidence from the DMVs that I could legally and truthfully state that I had tried real hard but could not find the owner. When I sold the trailer I gave the buyer the paperwork showing my homework and he could use that to get it plated at the DMV. That is after he replaced the bent axle and repaired the rear door that had been knocked off in the accident so it could be towed off the property.

    Anyway, plate-swapping on trailers seems to be very common, and it would not surprise me to find out that half the utility trailers in Texas don't have the right license plate and have been sold/swapped/stolen/acquired numerous times in their lives. Trailers below a certain value? size? (I forget which) don't have to be titled in Texas (and other states), just registered so it can be very difficult to determine the true owner.

    Doesn't matter what titles are. If he is such a hardened criminal that he has overdue library fees then he needs to be locked up.

    No three strikes for this one. He did the crime and he must pay... dearly.

    I get what you were saying. I was attempting to be a smart ass and failed at the first part.

    d0, you achieved your goal, some just do not realize what a smart ass you are.

    Not sure how well your sarcasometer works, I was going to post (dumb smart ass) but I didn't want to get reported.
