Troubles apparently not over

If he's mentally ill, shouldn't that be taken into consideration at his revocation hearing.

"Stolen valor" convict back in jail

Army veteran Brian Culp of San Antonio, who pleaded guilty to falsely claiming to be a highly decorated U.S. Army Ranger, is back behind bars.

Probation officers are seeking to revoke the supervised release of Culp, 41, saying he violated probation on a nine-month jail sentence, part of which he served. They allege he failed to inform the office that he was moving, failed to show up for at least one mental-health treatment session, and failed to meet in person with his probation officer as required.

At a hearing Tuesday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Nancy Nowak said “based on what I heard today, I find there is probable cause generally as to failing to report.”
