CHICAGO, Ill. (AP) — A man convicted of killing an off-duty Chicago police officer who was shot while cleaning his retirement car has been sentenced to life in prison.
Michael Bailey’s wife and daughter say they have forgiven Antwon Carter. But Cook County Judge Stanley Sacks says he has “no compassion” to offer. The judge told the 32-year-old Carter, “you have your life ahead of you” – behind bars.
Bailey was a member of Mayor Richard M. Daley’s security team in 2010 when he was shot while wiping his Buick Regal. Bailey had purchased the car ahead of his upcoming retirement.
