Maday convicted of charges in 2009 escape
CHICAGO (AP) — A bank robber was convicted Wednesday of overpowering county lawmen transporting him to a courthouse in 2009, snatching their guns and forcing one guard to hand over his pants before going on a daylong crime spree in Chicago's suburbs.
Federal jurors in Chicago convicted Robert Maday on all five counts, including escape, aggravated bank robbery and brandishing a weapon during the escape and bank heist. Maday, 42, of Elk Grove Village, faces a mandatory minimum prison term of nearly 50 years.
Maday's escape from the two guards, who were driving him to a Rolling Meadows courthouse to be sentenced for an earlier robbery conviction, sparked a pursuit that included carjackings and a bank robbery. It ended with his capture after a high-speed chase and crash.
