Balser was convicted in 2009 for three felonies.  At that time he was sentenced to 10 years for those charges, six behind bars and four on probation. Balser was sent back to jail for violating probation after his dogs were involved in an attack last year with three years of probation remaining.

In a hearing held Friday to revoke probation Balser admitted to violating some terms of probation including possession of alcohol and driving without a license. Judge Randy Williams revoked the remaining three years of Balser’s probation all of which he will now serve behind bars at the Department of Corrections.

Balser is scheduled to be back in court next month for the dog bite charges. Until then he will remain at the Tippecanoe County jail without bond. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
