He Seemed Like Such a Nice Felon

William Ligue
"Father / Son
Day at Comisky"
Cook County Judge Leo Holt should be thrown in the clink. The untra-compassionate Holt was the judge that allowed William Ligue Jr. to walk with a 30-month probation sentence after he and his then 15-year old son pummeled Kansas City Royals first base coach Tom Gamboa back in 2003 after the pair stormed the field.

At the time, Holt ruled that the sentence, “should not be viewed as a pass, or a slap on the wrist" because Ligue will have to live with the stigma of being a convicted felon.

That stigma has sure kept scumbags like Ligue out of hot water. The senior beater landed back in jail on Friday after Associate Judge Joseph M. Claps ruled that Ligue violated his parole after he was charged with breaking into a car in a Chicago suburb. In April of 2004.

The length of Ligue’s jail stay will be determined on March 10th. He will receive his sentence for the car burglary on February 21st. Gamboa suffered minor hearing loss in the attack, but apparently knocking someone deaf holds no penalty in Chicago.

I was outraged when that initial sentence came down. So basically the message sent was that you can trespass, assault and batter someone and give them permanenet physical damage and...you can get probation. Unbelievable.

Agreed--that judge needs to get in th eklink or at least retire.

Here in Chicago, they call him "Let 'em go Leo." He routinely acquits gangbangers, thugs and rapists or in the alternative, he convicts them of lesser offenses. He finally retired last year. He is a black man who lets black criminals go free. And who do these criminals victimize? Black people in their neighborhoods! He is hurting black people not helping them!!! He also lets white defendants go free! Quite frankly, he is a dipshit jagoff asshole!
