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.)

Where was his support group? You mean to tell me that a rehab program let him out? It's such a waste of a life (multiple lives) but how did they miss he was on self destruct? He should still be in jail or rehab, none of this would have happened. He's responsible no doubt but our system sucks. The guy in Colorado was reaching out for help too but not one delivered the freaking mail or the shrink ignored him writing that we wanted to murder people at a movie house. Sad

Once again - the LA prison system showing how well they operate. It's a miracle Lohan and Bynes haven't killed themselves or someone else, but someone with this violent record should NOT have been let out early. I grieve for the family of the landlord and Johnny because they will be the ones who suffer now for LAPD's ineptitude.
