Ex-Tenant Is Accessory to Attempted Murder

Boy do I know Loser tenanthow to pick ’em. Every once in a while I like to look up some of my loser ex-tenants in the county’s public records system (yes I’m bored today).

It just goes to show that running a background check is no guarantee. One tenant in particular, after being evicted by me, proceeded to get herself charged with “accessory after the fact to attempted first degree murder”. After further investigation in The Google, I find
this lovely article . The guy in the picture was actually staying at the house when they were evicted.

First let me ask: Can these people BE bigger dumbasses?! I mean, come on! You’re 23 & 21 years old respectively, at least TRY to stay out of trouble. Kids get into trouble sometimes but attempted murder? L-O-S-E-R-S !

    Oh, wow, you really dodged a bullet on that one–literally! Thank God they weren’t still your tenants. I wouldn’t even know how to handle evicting a tenant who’s in prison.

    Trisha,
    Funny you mention it but at the time there was no activity at the house, there was a car in the driveway and the house was full of stuff (beds, furniture, clothes, etc.)

    I had the DISTINCT impression that somebody was in jail. Now I know that I was right. I evicted them anyway. The Florida court doesn’t care. If they don’t respond to my suit for eviction, I win by default.

    […] Using information from the rental application, I check the driver’s license number against the local clerk of courts criminal and civil database on the web. If they’ve exclusively lived locally, you get to see everything from previous evictions to traffic violations to attempted murder charges. […]
