Still the Sentencing
- In June 2014, Roger Lakes and two other men beat and robbed a man in the 900 block of West Belmont, prosecutors said. He probably wouldn’t have been caught if he hadn’t returned to the scene of the crime two days later while observant police looked on.
Lakes was sentenced to five years in prison for the robbery and four years for severely battering his victim.
Now, sit down for this part: Lakes was released on parole last November and he’s been arrested again for robbing yet another victim in the 900 block of West Belmont—this time outside of Alderman Tom Tunney’s flagship Ann Sather Restaurant.
We suppose if he's only robbing and beating Tunney's constituents, no one will pay much attention. It isn't like they are active politically or contribute millions to mayoral, aldermanic or statewide campaigns.
