Chicago Prison Escapee Sentenced

Share this post

A man who made a daring Chicago prison escape was sentenced Monday. ABC News reports in 2012 Kenneth Conley, and Joseph Banks managed to escape their 17th floor prison cell by scaling down the side of the building with a rope made of bed sheets. Conley was on the run for 17 days before being apprehended. On Monday, a US District Judge sentenced him to three and a half years for the prison break. That's on top of the 20 year sentence he was already serving for bank robbery. Conley told the judge in court to "stick it" suggesting he wanted more time. But the judge said thank you...and Conley was lead out of the courtroom.
