Mr. Lindley better watch out or they will give him probation again. How many times to you have to violate your probation before they send you to jail? If justice doesn't matter and we are just going to set him free anyways why not just save the taxpayers the money they would pay for his public defender and let him do whatever he wants. His January 2011 probation gets violated 3 times. April 2011 probation gets violated 4 times. July 2011 arrest 1 probation gets violated 3 times. July 2011 arrest 2 probation gets violated 2 times. November 2011 probation gets violated 1 time. So he violated his probation 13 times and all he ever gets is more probation and suspended sentences. No jail time. Something is broken with that system.

Lindley needs some time in the big house to ruminate over his life decisions. Six months minimum, then maybe the courts can get some breathing room without this fellow in there all of the time. He needs some direction.
