Anthony H. Lett was brought to Berea Jail following an arrest for a alleged robbery at a gun show. While being processed, police found crack cocaine and heroine on Lett. He asked the judge handling his mistifyng case for a $1 bond, it was set to $500,000.
A preliminary hearing to determine whether there is enough evidence for a trial is scheduled for May 10.
He is charged with theft, tampering with evidence, illegal conveyance of illegal items in a detention facility, weapons under disability and two counts of possession of drugs, according to court records.
Lett's arrest Saturday came just hours after police in Cleveland obtained a warrant charging him with rape and aggravated robbery in an April 24 attack in which a woman was raped and her husband was shot.
He is charged with aggravated robbery and rape in that case.
Lett was arrested during an investigation into two theft reports from a gun show at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds.
I have never been a fan of Cleveland. The stories that come from that place do not seem pleasant. It seems that the city is filled with people like Anthony Lett. How many crimes is this dude being charged with? More than 5, and a hefty list too.
Theft, evidence tampering, illegal conveyance of illegal items in a detention facility, weapons under disability, two counts of possession of drugs, rape, and aggravated robbery.
That is 8, Lett is being charged with 8 crimes. For a small time crook that has to be a record. We are not talking about a single crime with a bunch of different charges stemming from it. We are talking three crimes eight charges. What a disgusting person.
Then to ask for $1 bond when you will soon be on trial for rape and essentially two separate counts of robbery/theft. This is not the dollar menu at McDonalds, you can't just go rummaging through your couch cushions to come up with the bond money. It is not like they set up the bond money according to what you can afford, no it is not a payment plan. The US court is not US cellular, we can't just let you gradually send a dollar a day until your bond is cleared.
I am guessing this dude brought the crack and heroine into jail to sell. He was gonna trade some crack for a pack of smokes, trade those smokes for a shank, find someone to sell the shank to, get a pencil for the shank, finally get paid a dollar by the guards for the pencil because they need a writing utensil for paperwork. Genius plan, the only problem is Lett is gonna need a lot more crack if he wants to get $500,000 as opposed to $1. Besides, they already took his drugs so he's screwed. Without those drugs he has no source of income.
Typical American government, taking away everyones source of income, stealing away all the jobs and giving them to immigrants. It is almost as if this country hates its own citizens, forcing them to lives of crime then taking it all away with a jail sentence.
This country sometimes boys, this country sometimes.
