Shawn Laval Smith has a long list of criminal records and he was arrested several times as well. 

According to our sources, the suspect already has criminal records in Charlotte, South Carolina, and California. It has come to light that Smith has over a dozen records of crime and he is a career criminal. 

Moreover, the 31-year-old recently got out on bail of $1000 in California for an unknown misdemeanor. Also, he was arrested in South Carolina back in 2019 for suspicion of shooting at a vehicle. There too, he got out in $50,000 bond. 

It is a shame that someone with such a lengthy criminal rap sheet was allowed to walk and a 24-year-old innocent college girl paid the price.
