HERMISTON, OR - So often criminals that commit misdemeanors become repeat offenders. Hermiston police say they finally have one of these chronic offenders with a history of crime behind bars.

26 year-old Marcus wise of Hermiston has been arrested 18 times and charged with 46 different crimes. Most of these included minor theft charges leading to fines and building up a record.

This past weekend a reportedly stolen vehicle was found at his home. He now faces charges of burglary in the first degree, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and theft in the second degree.

“While sentencing every person to jail is not the answer, until Mr. Wise decides to stop terrorizing our citizens, having him sit behind bars until next spring is a step in the right direction,” explained Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston. "A person that typically would get their hands slapped in municipal court and then they think that they can go commit x,y and z. There needs to be accountability and the people need to be held responsible for actions that they take."

Wise was sentenced to 150 days in jail Monday morning. The city prosecutor pointed out he was on probation and requested that be revoked based on these new charges.
