A bank robber's escape with a cellmate from a high-rise Chicago lockup got him an additional three and a half years in federal prison, but not without speaking his mind to the judge.
A convicted bank robber who captured days after a daring escape from a high-rise downtown Chicago federal jail shuffled into court Friday, shackled at the arms and legs.
Employees at a high-rise lockup in downtown Chicago knew something wasn't right when they arrived at work and saw a makeshift rope fashioned from bed sheets hanging from the bars of a cell window about 20 stories above the ground.
Two convicted bank robbers used a knotted rope or bed sheets to escape from a federal prison window high above downtown Chicago early Tuesday, a week after one of them made a courtroom vow of retribution.
The Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/1fjFfmV) reports that Kenneth Conley told U.S. District Judge Gary Feinerman on Monday to "stick it" after Feinerman tacked the latest sentence on to 20 years Conley's already serving for robbery.
After he was convicted by U.S. District Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer, he said he would "be seeking retribution as well as damages," the Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago Tribune reported.
