Pair Fired Over Fugitive Incident

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Nov 19, 2009 9:40PM

Remember the crazy story of Robert Maday, the suspect who managed to over-power a pair of investigators, leaving them pantsless, and going (temporarily) on the lam? The fall-out from that incident continues as those two investigators have now been fired. Cook County State's Attorney's office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton confirmed the firings this morning. In late October, Maday was sentenced to 13 years for several counts of robbery charges (the hearing he was originally en route to when he made his daring September escape). Earlier this week, he pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated hijacking and attempted robbery stemming from the escape attempt. A status hearing has been scheduled for December 23.
