In 2005 Lemon was charged with Failure to Stop for Blue Light and Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle. He pled guilty to the failure to stop charge and Judge Pieper sentenced him to one year, suspended on the service of thirty days and fifteen months probation.
In January of 2006 Lemon was charged with Possessions of Crack. The 9th Circuit Solicitor dismissed the charge - "lacks prosecutorial merit".
In March of 2006 Lemon was charged with Distribution of Crack and Distribution of Crack Near a School. We all know the school charge would be dismissed - and it was. Lemon pled guilty before Judge Dennis in April of 2007. Dennis sentences Lemon to eighteen months, suspended to one year of probation and a $300 fine.
Why in hell would Judge Dennis think probation meant anything to Lemon when he committed these offenses while he was on probation?
And where is the probation violation we would expect to see as a result of this arrest and conviction?
In December of 2006 Lemon was charged with 2nd Offense Possession of Marijuana. The 9th Circuit Solicitor dismissed the charge in 2007 without comment.
In April of 2007 Lemon was charged with 1st Degree Burglary. The 9th Circuit Solicitor sat on the case for two years and finally dismissed the charges in June of 2009. The case notes indicate "facts insufficient to prosecute". Hmm....were the facts also insufficient when they were presented the Grand Jury who indicted Lemon?
In August of 2007 Lemon was charged with Possession of MDMA (ecstacy). The 9th Circuit Solicitor also sat on this case for two years and dismissed it in June of 2009 with the note, "facts insufficient to prosecute". We have the same question already posed above.
In 2011 Lemon was charged with 1st Offense Possession of Marijuana. He was found guilty and a bench warrant was issued because he failed to pay the fine of show up for court.
After conducting this arrest analysis we have to ask, who does Lemon know at the 9th Circuit Solicitor's office? Or does our moment of speculation 'lack prosecutorial merit'?
