Scales of Justice22-year-old Brent Knapp (myspace), arrested for murder in Tuesday’s shooting death of Braden Wilson, is apparently no stranger to the legal system.

Examining his criminal history in Lawrence County shows that Knapp has a handful of previous convictions:

  • August 2007: Illegal Consumption
  • October 2007: Speeding (77/35)
  • November 2007: Seat Belt Violation
  • October 2009: Seat Belt Violation
  • January 2010: Battery
  • March 2010: Speeding
  • June 2010: Battery, Possession of Marijuana, and Criminal Mischief

When arrested in June, Knapp was being held without bond because he was still on probation due to the previous Battery conviction. At the initial hearing in that case on June 16th, Judge Robbins — over the objection of the State — set bond in the amount of $300. Knapp posted bond the same day and was scheduled to appear in Lawrence Superior Court I at 10:00 a.m. on July 21st — today — to face those charges.

Knapp was out on bond at the time of fatal shooting.

Wilson was convicted in April 2010 of Operating While Intoxicated and Possession of Marijuana. Two counts of Illegal Consumption of an Alcoholic Beverage were dismissed as part of a plea bargain.
