Dallas Black Lives Matter Organizer Gets 2 Years for Probation Violations

A Texas state district judge ordered the chief organizer of the July 7 Dallas-held Black Lives Matter protest to serve two years in prison over repeated violations to an existing probation sentence, yet the activist believes his troubles stem from the Dallas police targeting him.

Friday, Judge Gracie Lewis ordered Dominique Alexander, 27, to spend two years in prison. He was serving a seven-year deferred adjudication probation sentence following a 2009 conviction for injury to a child. Alexander pleaded guilty to shaking a two-year-old baby left in his care. The terms of his probation were set in 2011 by this same judge.
