Yoni Christian Barrios, the illegal immigrant who allegedly went on a stabbing attack rampage in Las Vegas on Thursday, has been revealed to have been charged with felony domestic violence back in 2019 in Los Angeles but the charges were dropped after then-District Attorney Jackie Lacey waited too long to bring the case to trial.

According to the Daily Mail, the felony charge would have carried a punishment of four years, meaning he would be locked up through 2023. After DA Lacey waited for over a year to take him to trial over his domestic violence, a judge threw the charges out because of LA's speedy trial laws.
