Kankakee Man Sentenced to 25 Years


CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, IL—A Kankakee man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for taking 11 dollars from an Urbana woman during a mugging last spring.


A jury convicted, 21 year old, Joseph Hairston, of robbery back in August. The incident happened while the woman was walking home from her job.


The judge told Hairston that people traveling home from work "shouldn't have to look over their shoulder in fear."
