Johnny Lewis Mug Shot
Johnny Lewis
-- the "Sons of Anarchy" actor suspected of murdering his landlady Wednesday before falling off a roof to his death -- was convicted of several violent crimes in 2012 ... TMZ has learned.

According to official records, Lewis committed felony assault with a deadly weapon on January 3rd. The records don't specify the details of the crime, but they do show he was subsequently ordered to complete a rehab program for "treatment of mental health and/or drugs and alcohol."

The records also indicate Lewis was arrested on February 10th. Law enforcement sources tell us, he sucker-punched a man on his way out of a yogurt shop for no apparent reason.

Eight days afterwards, on February 18th, Lewis was arrested again for burglary. According to law enforcement sources, he had tried to break into a woman's house through a window, claiming he was looking for a friend ... but when the woman called cops, he took off.

Lewis was convicted of felony assault following his January arrest, and sentenced to a year in county jail. Lewis was also convicted of battery and burglary following his February arrests, and sentenced to 303 days in jail for those two crimes.

It's unclear exactly how many days he served and whether he spent the majority of his time in jail or in rehab. Lewis was ultimately released from jail SIX DAYS AGO on September 21st.

(FYI -- The mug shot for Lewis' felony assault arrest is unavailable because the LAPD doesn't release mugs.)

Such a shame. He was also on Criminal Minds. He played some psycho who killed & tortured women. Not too far fetched apparently. RIP to Catherine Davis and her kitty. No animal, person or child deserve to be killed. Glad he is dead though. Money saved on a stupid court hearing.

Even though the scope was rather broad and included petty crimes, there is something of value in the Three Strikes law. It would have been completely valuable for that poor old woman and those who loved her.

So sad. Drugs ruin peoples lives, rehab apparently didn't work and at least two people are dead.

How messed up do you have to be to sucker punch someone at a yogurt shop. What a waste.

Glad he is gone. You don't beat an old lady to death then get to sit in some comfy celebrity prison.

How is it he was even on the street ? If he was Johnny Nobody and or a person of color & had been arrested on seven felony counts he never would have been out.

Why was he on the street instead of in jail.???? Hope whoever made the decision to let him go feels real good since he/she has a good part of the responsibility for this horrible crime!!
That poor woman
There needs to be some accountability for these suits who like to make stupid decisions that harm innocent people.

So so sad. He was a friend of mine in my teens and early twenties, and at the time such a sweet sweet kid. I cannot believe that he did something like this. Destroyed by drugs, destroying other peoples lives. It's so damn disgusting and tragic.
