      Why are you raising the flop? Do you think you are folding out any better hands? I doubt it. If you think you are ahead just call.

      I like your re-raise on the flop. These weak leads often mean that they have very weak hand and they want to get cheap showdown or they want to make very cheap bluff. I would only re-raise at least 1$, maybe even 1,2$, because that will increase my fold equity.
      Don´t understand why you chechk behind on the turn. You´re giving him free card and he won´t bet out anyway on the river- ace is just too scary card for him. If he is drawing or have weak hand- he might call your turn bet anyway.
