Killer w/ 67 arrests sentenced for drugs

A convicted killer who has been arrested 67 times since leaving juvenile detention is headed to state prison.

Nicholas A. Limpert, 25, was sentenced this week to one year and one day in prison with credit for 18 days served after pleading guilty to two counts of drug possession.

The felony convictions are his 10th and 11th since 2007. He still faces a second-degree burglary charge after police say they caught him in the act Feb. 7.

Limpert avoided prison as a teenager for his role in a murder because a judge believed he could be rehabilitated. He has been arrested 67 times since, mostly for property-related crimes.

Limpert's demeanor seems to have changed since he was a teen. He was described as smirking and laughing during his sentencing for first-degree murder in 2001; Spokane police say he’s now well known for crying upon arrest.
