A man called Outlaw is headed to prison for his role in two violent crimes.
Stanley "Outlaw" Carter was sentenced in federal court to 20 years behind bars. In 2008 Carter was first involved in an armed home invasion and stole a large amount of marijuana. Later in the year he was involved in a shooting that left two men dead.
A judge said both of the crimes were related to a drug trafficking operation and the fruits of a federal investigation.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A federal appeals court will hear arguments Oct. 3 over a push by gun rights advocates to let Illinois residents immediately tote firearms in public under the state's fledgling concealed-carry law.
Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association want the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to intervene after failing to sway a federal judge in East St. Louis to allow immediate concealed carry.
The Illinois Legislature passed the last-in-the-nation concealed-carry law July 9 against Gov. Pat Quinn's objections, giving Illinois State Police 180 days to set up the permit process and an additional 90 days to process applications.
Shepard and the rifle group consider that "foot-dragging."
The state counters the legal challenge is moot, and that the permitting process should be allowed to run its course.
