Recognized By Face Tats, Uptown Robber Gets 15-Year Prison Term

Among the many valid reasons to not get tattoos etched into your face is this: Facial tats make you easy to recognize if you ever rob someone.

Just ask Christopher Lee…after he gets out of prison.

A judge just handed down a 15-year sentence to Lee who pleaded guilty to robbing a Chicago meteorologist of a cell phone in Uptown last summer.

Around 9:30 p.m. on June 9, the victim told police that two men approached him in the 4500 block of North Sheridan Road and demanded his valuables while they claimed to be armed with a gun and a knife.

The victim remembered one of the robbers was a short, balding, Hispanic man with lots of tattoos, including a cross between his eyes.

Other officers immediately knew who that man might be.

“That sounds like Christopher Lee,” one said on the radio.

Cops raced to Lee’s home where they saw him running up the street with another man, prosecutors said.

Lee was caught. The other man fled eastbound and was never located.

This is the third time that Lee has been sentenced to prison for robbery since 2007.

  1. Three times for the same crime means he will never learn. Put his lights out.

  2. Parole scheduled for Dec. 6, 2023. Ok. That means he'll be back in the news sometime around Dec. 20, 2023, after getting caught doing a Christmas robbery or thugging.

    1. This, of course, assumes he is not released early. My bet is he'll be out by EOY 2018 at the very latest.

  3. I'm guessing he was saving his forehead to tattoo his resume on.

  4. Great, I'm glad he got 15 years. I just don't understand why others, like the kid who stole a car and used it to crash into and damage a bunch of other cars, is out in a matter of months when this guy gets 15 years for a cell phone.

    1. Tattoos anywhere are a turn off for me, especially the little shamrock or suggestive cartoon in the pubic region. Any chick with a tramp stamp on her ankle isn't to try to talk to me either. This is the type of guy that would try to pick me up on Halsted Street or Grindr too. I just don't get it.

    3. Geez dude, tramp stamps aren't on ankles, they're the tattoos on the lower back.

  6. I thought tramp stamps were lower back?..at any rate, their facial markings help keep track of the scum.
