14TH TIME'S THE CHARM: Back To Prison For Career Criminal

Boose
Here's another round of courthouse updates on cases you read about on CWB:

Eric Boose, who was tazed and arrested by police during a dust-up at the Boystown Circle K/Shell station during Pride Fest last summer, is back in a familiar place: prison.

He pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated battery to a police officer and received an 18-month sentence.

Boose, whose criminal record spans two full pages in the Cook County Court database, had been out of prison for just 3 days before being arrested in this case. His prior convictions include attempted murder, theft, battery, shoplifting, burglary, violating an order of protection, possession of controlled substance(s), receiving/possessing a stolen vehicle, manufacturing/distributing look-alike drugs, and aggravated battery/strangulation.

Lake View Carjack Crash

Rush
Shaquille Rush, charged with resisting police and possessing a vehicle that got carjacked in Lake View this summer, has reached a deal.

Rush pleaded guilty to resisting police who tried to take him into custody after he allegedly crashed the stolen car into a tree on the South Side.

After being sentenced to 30 days and being given 30 days credit for time served, Rush was sent on his way.

Gun On Halsted

Fisher-Burner
Blake Fisher-Burner, who was found with a loaded handgun in a car parked at Roscoe and Halsted this summer, has entered a plea deal.

Pleading guilty to one count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon brought Fisher-Burner two years probation and 15 days of community service.

At the time of his arrest, Fisher-Burner told police that he carried the gun to protect himself from gangbangers near his mom’s house.
