Boystown Widow Beater Gets 4 Year Prison Term

Enjoy prison, jackass.

Vacha smoking a "cigarette" on probation (L); at Stateville yesterday (R)
A Cook County judge gave Robert Vacha an inexplicable sentence of 30 months probation for mugging a 61-year-old widow at Halsted and Roscoe in August 2014.

Vacha, unable to seize an incredible opportunity, screwed that up royally and has now been sentenced to four years in prison. He reported to the Stateville Correctional Center yesterday.

Four months after being given probation, Vacha was arrested on a warrant after a foot patrol officer recognized him at the Center on Halsted. Vacha falsely identified himself as "Stephen Lapinskas" to the cop, who promptly filed a charge of obstructing identification against him.

Vacha was given another slap on the wrist by the judge who ordered him to undergo in-patient treatment at a South Side facility. Instead of reporting as required, Vacha fled to Rockford, IL, where he lived freely and posted liberally on Facebook for over a year.

Winnebago County officers tracked Vacha down a month ago. But they allowed him to make one final Facebook post before being hauled away: "Cops suck," Vacha wrote, "but they help me out let me smoke and drink befor going to jail."

A couple of months before he mugged the woman in Boystown, Vacha created a video while attending the Windy City Times' Youth Summit. His closing thought? "Don't trust everybody at first glance." Indeed.

By the way, the Windy City Times has now set Vacha's video to "private."

  1. Windy City Times, isn't that part of the left-leaning media that considers boys like Vacha an oppressed victim of evil capitalist America?

  2. Of course it is. This has to be the dumbest, lie filled, deflecting narrative in history. These are criminals, not oppressed. Do people really think people like Vacha would have taken a 40k a year job if it was offered? Hell to the no! That's why this narrative is stupid and will eventually fall through. I just hope folks like y'all can make it through until then

  3. I see the little punk cut his ridiculous hair. Smart. Too bad he couldn't wipe that smirk off his face. I hope the boys in prison do that for him. Beating up grandma and walking around with a smirk doesn't sound like a good idea in the pen.

    1. It was removed when they shaved his head at intake at the correctional facility. I'd like to slap the smirk off. I'm sure in time the other boys out there will take care of that smirk. LOL. What goes around, comes back around, little Vacha/Lapanskis/wtf ever your name is. Bwa ha ha.

  4. So glad this p.o.s. Is going away for a bit.. Now if only they could send the pink haired one that burned the building down and hangs out the center daily and loudly, that'd be great.

  5. I have followed this creep on Facebook since he mugged the widow and I routinely reported his location to authorities. I hope I aided in his arrest and ultimate incarceration at Stateville. I have a feeling his fellow prisoners there will wipe that smirk off his face. Punks like him are used as punching bags there.

  6. Was the original lenient judge Let Em Go Luckman by any chance?

    1. Sentence was likely from his Judge at 26th street. Luckman only hears probable cause hearings in a preliminary courtroom. The state could always choose to indict someone even after a judge finds probable cause. Plenty of blame to pass around.

      This problem isn't due to one judge doing probable cause hearings. It has to do with the State's Attorney, the Police, The Sheriff, The County Gov't, The Chief Judge, race, politics, and society.

  7. Three comments: (1) The WCT can kiss the community's ass. They represent us no more than Trump represents the liberals. (2) Vacha/Lapinsky enjoy that vacation out there at the correctional facility, even though you know you won't serve four years. Four months tops. And (3) praise JESUS they shaved that chia pet off the top of your misaligned head. Happy Facebook posting, and you have a nice day, now, ya' hear? LOL.

  9. Windy City Times had to set the Vacha video to private because when one of their heroes is a convicted criminal they cannot admit the truth.

  10. Center on Halsted gave him a FREE 90-day cooking class at their facility AFTER he mugged an old woman. I guess if he had killed her, Center on Halsted would have given him a new car.

    1. Sure hope he got that pat on the head and the $11 Burger King gift card from Toni Preckwinkle and Kim Fox too.

  11. The most memorable part of the video was that the lame Windy City Times interviewer was desperately trying to get the very stoned moron Vacha to say positive things about their "Youth Summit" and he was so out of it that although he had attended a full day of sessions, he couldn't remember any of them. He did make a point of saying that he thought free social services like food and lodging should be extended to older ages because he thought 24 was too young to cut people off. He is now 23 and the taxpayers will still be feeding him when he is 24 IN PRISON. Fuck him.

  12. What he did was absolutely 100% not right, but neither is what any of you people are doing. Tearing someone down who's already at their lowest point is fucking twisted. If you really cared about the safety of your neighborhoods you'd be proactive and do something about it. Instead you just hide behind computer screens and point fingers of blame. Again was it right? No. But has no one else done something they immediately regret? Yeah I didn't think so. So shut your fucking traps, and quit being asshole hypocrites. And as for the panty wads complaining about the classes he received... Would you rather people come out of the justice systems with no discernable skills and just keep reoffending? Or would you rather them be a productive member of society? Personally I'd choose the latter. People are so quick to judge and totally forget their own mistakes. And honestly those kind of people scare me more.

    1. Information is the first tool needed to "do something." And many people are "doing something."

      Vacha had at least four opportunities to correct his behavior. That's three more than he deserved. But he refuses to take responsibility for himself, so the state will take responsibility for him.

      Also, be sure to learn the definition of hypocrite. You're using it incorrectly.

      If you're expecting tears for Robert Vacha, you've come to the wrong place.

    2. "quick to judge and forget their own mistakes"? he was convicted, so i'm not judging, a judge is judging (and a jury, i presume). and i've never made the "mistake" of assaulting or robbing anyone, so there's nothing to forget. the person at their "lowest point" is the 61 year old woman he assaulted. if there is hypocrisy to be had in this story, it's orbiting your portrayal of this guy as a victim.

    3. People are both being proactive and mocking the violent little loser who thinks it's ok to beat people up to get what he wants. We can and will do both as is necessary and appropriate.

      And hopefully he is NOT at his lowest---hopefully he will be reaching that point soon. The little loser is now surrounded by adult men who also think it is ok to use violence to get what you want.

      Let's see how that works out for this fool.

    4. Mugging someone in the street is not a "mistake"...it is a calculated crime.

    5. We would not have to do anything about the safety of our neighborhood if all criminals like Vacha were behind bars where they belong.

    6. I can tell you as a fact that I have never robbed or mugged or physically assaulted anyone in my life and neither has anyone in my entire family. Anyone who thinks that kind of behavior is normal and understandable and should be forgiven also deserves to be in jail. This punk Vacha SHOULD be judged by all decent people as a career criminal opportunist without values or morals who should be locked up for as long as possible to keep our neighborhood safe.

    7. I guess Windy City Times reads this blog also. Astonishing someone would try to put down law abiding citizens in defense of this POS. I have never been convicted of a crime because I have never committed a crime. I have never felt this way before about a poster's comment but I honestly hope someday you are a victim of a violent crime, then tell me how you feel.

    8. Out! out! out! This mindset is why we have an unacceptable crime problem. Time to get tough!

    9. It is unbelievable that someone would be defending the actions of this piece of shit. The biggest "mistake" made was when Vacha's mother took a dump and named one of the turds Robert. It should have been flushed.

      Delete
    10. In reply to the asinine statement "If you really cared about the safety of your neighborhoods you'd be proactive and do something about it.":
      We DID do something about the safety of our neighborhood...we made sure this fucking predator Robert Vacha was arrested and sent to prison. That makes our neighborhood safer.

    11. I hope going to prison is not Vacha's lowest point. I hope the other savage creature inmates in Stateville bring him all new levels of lowest points.

    12. This perps neighborhood was rockford-go rehab him there

    13. @10:43...ok, I'll take the bait...
      1) Mistakes are errors of oversight and/or situations where you derive negative unintended consequences. Turning right on red when you didn't see the sign forbidding it - that's a mistake.
      Robbing a 61 year old woman - that's a choice. See the difference? It's really not that hard.
      2) Running away from a very lenient sentence to "pay your 'debt' to society" is not a mistake. It's a choice....another bad one. Again, see the difference?
      3) Chasing after anti-social buttheads to give them free stuff in the misguided hope that they might take responsibility for their own life - THAT is a mistake. A dumbass mistake. A sort of a hold-my-beer-and-watch-this type of mistake. See?
      4) Teaching people marketable skills is a fine thing. But again, it is a....mistake....to think it makes any sense to do so where the 'student' so obviously refuses to take responsibility for his/her own life.
      5) Calling people 'assholes' because they care about their neighborhood and their neighbors is also not a mistake. It's ignorant.
      Just plain stupid.
      Get it?

  13. You know who scares me? People like you that think because a person makes a mistake and beats an elderly woman they should get free stuff to help them turn their lives around. Who should be getting free stuff is the person who doesn't break the law and has a good moral compass! So my parting words to you are KMA!

  14. How do you know the cops allowed him to make one final post? Because he said so? Selective believability. He also said he was innocent. Idiots.
