Unfortunately for suspect, he is likely to be convicted under the tough new "three slurps and you're out" sentencing rule.

HA, ha, ha ! Foiled by soy milk! No problem with the lactose I tolerance, though.

Why didn't any of the three priors get him deported? And what does "facing deportation" mean? What determines whether a felon is deported or not? Can somebody explain? Thanks.

@midtowner - I was just going to ask the same thing! 3 prior felony convictions? Why wasn't he deported after the first one? That would have saved a lot of hassle and grief the the remaining 3 victims that followed that arrest... not to mention any other crimes he commited in between the felonies!
