Only two prior coonvictions?
Other nogs would consider this chap a serious underachiever.
King County prosecutors have charged a 38-year-old man in connection with an attack on a man at a Rainier Beach bus stop. The 61-year-old victim is developmentally disabled. Seattle Police said Friday that Aaron Sloan was arrested after attempting to sell a gold Ford Contour, the vehicle seen in surveillance images released by investigators, on Craigslist.
Sloan has been charged with second-degree assault in the March 24 incident. Ray Pieczynski suffered a traumatic brain injury and severe hearing loss after he was attacked with a baseball bat.
Pieczynski continues to recover at Harborview Medical Center.
According to charging documents, Sloan is facing his third strike if he is convicted in the assault and will face a life sentence. That’s because he has prior convictions for two counts of first-degree robbery in King County and one count of attempted bank robbery.
In addition, Sloane has been busted for second-degree attempted theft, malicious harassment, unlawful bus conduct and second-degree theft. He was also arrested in 2005 and subsequently convicted for mailing a hoax Anthrax letter containing white powder to the FBI in Washington D.C. He sent a similar letter with light brown powder to the Economist in New York. He was sentenced to two years in prison.
