Frank R. James, the man arrested in connection to the NYC subway shooting this week, has a criminal history dating back decades. That criminal history includes a terrorist threat in the 1990s, where he was sentenced only to probation. He also had nine prior arrests in New York City from 1992 to 1998, including possession of burglary tools, a criminal sex act, and theft of service. However, since he had no prior felony convictions, he was able to purchase the gun he used in the attack, which left 29 people injured. He has now been arrested for violating a law that prohibits terrorist and other violent attacks against a mass transportation system.
