- A man on parole for armed robbery is accused of raping and robbing a Lakeview woman he followed home from a Wicker Park bar over the weekend.
Alexander Carter, 46, was sentenced in 2005 to 25 years in prison for armed robbery, aggravated battery with a weapon and aggravated unlawful restraint, court records show. He was released on parole in June.
Carter was back in court Tuesday — this time on allegations he raped a 24-year-old Lakeview woman he first met at Nick's Beer Garden late Saturday.
And word from the street is that one of the two homicides this past weekend was committed by....ANOTHER PAROLEE! That "empty the jails" and "don't charge anyone with crime" strategy is sure paying dividends.
