Sentences Handed Down In Two Boystown Robberies

Thompson (left) and Washington beat and robbed a woman near Nookie's restaurant in Boystown.
Two men who beat and robbed a woman in Boystown one year ago have been sentenced to prison for the crime.

24-year-old Sadarian Washington and 28-year-old Steven L. Thompson each received five-year sentences in exchange for their guilty pleas.

Last September, the two men attacked and beat a 23-year-old woman in the 800 block of West Buckingham. Thompson battered the woman while Washington wrestled away her purse, according to court records.

After receiving credit for time served awaiting trial and an anticipated 50% sentence reduction for good behavior, the men’s parole date has been set for March 8, 2019.

Men Sentenced For Mugging Boystown Man On His B-Day

Brown (top) and Williams allegedly followed their victim from the Boystown IHop. 
Two men who’ve been sources of trouble in Boystown for many years are out of commission—at least for a while.

24-year-old Keith Williams and 30-year-old William Brown both pleaded guilty to following a man from the Boystown I-Hop during a robbery in January.

Cook County Judge Catherine Haberkorn allowed the duo to plead guilty to unlawful restraint in exchange for 2- and 6-year sentences respectively.

Their parole dates have not been set.

A 23-year-old man told investigators that he had been out celebrating his birthday when Williams and Brown followed him from the restaurant, jumped him, and took his wallet and iPhone near the 3900 block of North Pine Grove on January 23.

A police tactical unit found Williams and Brown 30 minutes later as they tried to use the victim’s credit card at a BP service station near Lawrence and Marine Drive, according to court records.

At the time of the attack, Williams was on probation for setting a Boystown house on fire.

And Brown is hardly a stranger to violence in Boystown. He received a four-year sentence for beating and robbing a man who was waiting for a cab at Belmont and Sheffield in 2013.

Both Brown and Williams list the Howard Brown Health Center at 4025 N. Sheridan as their homes.

60 Days For Blocking, Mocking Cop In Foot Chase

Davis
A local social service agency client who blocked the path of a cop who was pursuing a robbery suspect in Boystown last month has received a 60-day jail sentence.

Clarence Davis, 27, pleaded guilty last week after prosecutors accused him of blocking the pursuing officer and mocking him by saying “What, you can’t catch him? You’re too slow?”

The robbery suspect escaped but was found later that night in Gill Park.

Davis lists his home as the Night Ministry at 4711 North Ravenswood. He received a five-year prison term for aggravated battery of a police officer in 2010 and two years probation for aggravated battery of a police officer in 2008, records show.

  1. Hey here's an idea, how about after the 2nd or 3rd conviction we stop with the 50% sentence reduction for good behavior?

    1. Great idea!!! .....I suggest 75% of the sentence must be served after the 2nd offense...100% for the 3rd!
      .... and double the sentence for 2nd and 3rd offenses.

  3. when the Center and Howard and Night started they cam to us law abiding citizens and said they were going to help innocent kid transsexuals being beating by society. And then they switched and took high profile adult violent career criminal urban terrorists. The center and others lied and then dump these horrible people after dilly dallying some bullshit counselling that these creeps tell the bullshit councilors what they wan to hear to get free bullshit and rob, beat, kill us. These (total bullshit) "counselling centers" need to close, very apparently these criminals cannot be fixed with anything in/ from the centers bullshit. Bad neighbors
