Five plead guilty in Illinois restaurant attack
BRIDGEVIEW (AP) — Five Indiana men accused of attacking a group of diners at a suburban Chicago restaurant were sentenced Friday to prison terms ranging from three to six years.
Attorneys for the men said their clients pleaded guilty because they wanted to put the case behind them. The men faced charges of armed violence, mob action and aggravated battery in the May 19 attack.
Investigators said the five men were wearing masks and hoods when they stormed a restaurant in Tinley Park. Prosecutors said the men are tied to an anti-racism group and attacked people allegedly tied to a white supremacist group.
