Cook County Department of Corrections
On March 16, 2012, Mackey was locked up and booked without bail in the Cook County jail system. And rightfully so if this story is true.
According to NBC Chicago, "Mackey allegedly apologized and fled the scene at 6600 block of North Glenwood Avenue on Feb. 27. But he’s still being charged for the crime... Mackey’s other previous run-in with the law include a home invasion that happened on March 14 in the 1200 block of West North Shore Avenue...."Records show that Mackey, who told police he lived of the 300 block of West Armitage Avenue, also has an address in the 1600 block of West North Shore Avenue.
Maybe, next court apperance, some judge will stick this guy with the sentence he deserves. Let's hope the judge is female.
Mackey's next court date is April 12, 2012 at Branch 42, 2452 West Belmont Avenue.
