REPEAT FELONY OFFENDERS WHO WERE CHARGED WITH CRIMES IN LEXINGTON DURING NOVEMBER, 2013
Too many crimes are committed in Lexington against our law-biding citizens. And far too many are committed by repeat offenders.
Repeat offenders should be in prison or jail – not back on our streets. Unfortunately, that’s what happens to most of the convicted criminals who go through our court system. Our judges probate them and put them right back on our streets and the revolving door called our court system just goes around and around and around!
Many in Florida are fed up with the repeat offenders who are released from prison early only to continue their predatory lives of crime and victimizing new innocent citizens. They decided to do something about it. This is their plan.
Florida business leaders, law enforcement, and concerned citizens joined together to educate fellow citizens and to demand that their Legislature focus on the problems created by the early release of convicted criminals and to ultimately stop the crime wave caused by the Early Release of violent & repeat offenders.
In Florida the cost of crime suffered by the taxpaying public resulting from the early release of these violent & repeat offenders is greater than the cost to build sufficient prison space to insure that convicted criminals serve their lawful sentence.

4. Failure to attend G.E.D. classes ordered by the judge.
5. Failure to maintain full-time employment as ordered by the judge.
6. Failure ti pay fines and court costs as ordered by the judge.
7. Failure to pay probation supervision fees as ordered by the judge.
So . . . these criminal justice researchers who feel compelled to lecture folks that they consider the “Great Unwashed” (that would be me) and the other the folks who are foolish enough to expect government to do all they can to protect our safety and security, might need to get out of their offices and join us in the trenches on the front lines of the war on crime.
