Judge Throws Book at Crook Caught Robbing Store While on Electronic Monitoring for Same Crime

A Cook County judge has thrown the book at a Chicago crook who was caught robbing a convenience store at gunpoint while he was already on electronic monitoring for committing the same crime at another store.

The furious judge sentenced Kameron Stevenson, 20, to a stunning (for Chicago) 21-year sentence.

After prosecutors agreed to drop the charges for the first robbery, Stevenson pleaded guilty to armed robbery with a firearm.

But Judge Mary Brosnahan was not impressed and dropped the hammer with a long prison sentence.

One can only imagine what he was thinking when he got dealt such a stiff sentence when criminals frequently get slaps on the wrist in Chicago.

Maybe this is a trend in the right direction for the city that has seen crime soar in the last few years under Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s leadership.

In the first case, Stevens went behind a store counter and fought with the cashier for control of the cash register.

Stevenson put his hand inside his hoodie pocket and asked the clerk, “Do you want to die?”

He grabbed the cash register and tried to make a run for it but the store owner gave chase.

Stevenson threw the cash register at the employee and fled the scene, but the attempted theft was caught on video.

Stevenson posted a $2,500 bail deposit and was put on home electronic monitoring.

On December 2, 2021, Stevenson wrapped aluminum foil around his electronic monitoring bracelet to block the signal.

Stevenson then walked to a convenience store in the 6000 block of South Kedzie on Chicago’s south side.

He pointed a gun at the clerk’s face and demanded the cash register.

He then attempted to grab the loot.

But the clerk was not cooperating.

Stevenson tried to grab the cash register and the clerk fought back.

This time he got away with the machine and its contents.

Cops arrested Stevenson an hour later because he looked like a description of the robber.

The cops found him carrying a loaded 9-millimeter handgun and with foil wrapped around his ankle monitor.

Stevenson was also convicted of armed robbery as a juvenile in 2019.

He robbed a CTA passenger while armed with a BB gun.

According to CWB Chicago:

“The 21-year sentence will be reduced by 50% for good behavior.

“Brosnahan also gave him credit for 425 days spent in jail before pleading and 280 days of work credits, according to court records.

“His parole date was not posted on the Illinois Department of Corrections website as of Thursday morning.”
