Again, Why Was He Out?

  • A Bridgeport man accused of murder 15 years ago has been charged with fatally stabbing a man during an argument in his home earlier this week, Chicago police said.

    Joseph "Joey" Lacyniak, 34, was charged with first-degree murder in the Monday morning death of John Hughes Jr., police said.

  • Lacyniak was previously charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm in 1997, according to court records.

    The following year, the then-20-year-old received concurrent 50- and 25-year prison sentences following a jury trial before Judge Michael Toomin, court records show. But an appeals court ordered a new trial for Lacyniak in 2004.

    In 2006, Lacyniak pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but was later allowed to withdraw his guilty plea, records show.

Concurrent 50 and 25 year sentences means a minimum of 37 years. A guilty plea to 20 years and he's out in 10 - call it time served - and he's allowed to withdraw the guilty plea.

Cook County courts are a joke.

The legislators sell out pretty cheap. Look at the CEO of JP Morgan. He drops about $10K to a handful of members on the banking committee in congress and he gets whatever he wants. No criminal wrongdoing they all parrot. Stick to the script and the script is a proven lie as the FBI warned of the exact criminal activities that these banking outfits pulled and not a one is even being charged.

It's an eff-in joke.

If I'm reading the story correctly Lacyniak was convicted in 1997 and retried in 2006 based on an appeals court order. It's a badly written story.

He plead guilty in 2006, withdrew his plea, and was found guilty and sentenced to twenty years.

If that's the story then given parole or "good time" he might have been released shortly after 2007.

Considering he's from Bridgeport just be happy he isn't working for the city.

The Sun Times has a similar, but conflicting story on this upstanding citizen.

Did a murder. Convicted after trial and sentenced. Appealed while in prison, and the case came back. Convicted again, appealed again and this time the trial court was ordered to re-sentence him. He pled to a 20 year sentence, and since it was a 1997 case, he got "day for day" credit. He was released because he had been in for 11 years at the time.

OMG, I love Second City Cop. This article. Are you effing kidding me? We have to get O-Bummer and his gang of merry men out of office. Get rid of these liberal judges who feel sorry for these "disadvantaged" youths. Everytime I walk outside and see these thugs I want to go home and take a shower. Filthy, disgusting wasters of precious oxygen!
