Judge "Really Really" Means It
Giving him a mix of encouragement and tough words, a judge sentenced the teenager who masqueraded as a cop to nearly three months in youth custody for violating his home confinement.
Judge Andrew Berman ordered the 15-year-old boy who famously impersonated a Chicago police officer earlier this year held in the Cook County Juvenile Detention Center until a Dec. 16 hearing to determine whether the youth has made any progress.
The teen, whom the Tribune is not naming because he is a juvenile, has been held in custody since late August after prosecutors petitioned the court claiming he had violated his home confinement several times this summer.
At a Sept. 17 hearing, the teen testified that his mother kicked him out of their South Side home for several days following an argument.
