Martin's rap sheet is long and colorful.
State criminal records show Martin was arrested in 1977, 1982 and 1983. In 1977, he was arrested after police said he sold 11 pounds of marijuana to an undercover cop in Florida. He pleaded guilty to that felony and to one count of bookmaking.
In 1982, he was arrested on several parole violations, police said, including illegal gambling. Three of those gambling charges were dropped as was a theft charge for stealing liquor from a Florida county sheriff's office.
