After 21 years on the Chicago Police force and part of that time as the Country Club Hills chief of police, you would think that Chief Regina Evans would care about crime. Yet she is now being sentenced to five years in prison. It was discovered that Evans had misappropriated over $900,000 in state funds. She pleaded guilty in court on charges of money-laundering, wire fraud, and conspiracy.

During her trial her family and even her minister delivered testimonies. All of them were emotional. Evans gave a 10 minute tearful apology for all of the things that she’d done. The money that she had stolen was supposed to go to the renovation of the Regal Theater on the South Side of Chicago. She stated that she made some bad decisions during her project to revive the theater. Her apology was met with sobs from the dozen or so supporters that were in the federal courtroom during her hearing.

After she serves five years in federal prison, Evans will be spending 3 years free but supervised. She will have to spend one year under house arrest. The two years after that, she will have to perform 20 hours of unpaid community service every week for the two final years of her sentence. She was also forced to immediately pay back $917,000 that she had stolen from the $1.25 million bankroll for the theater renovation fund.

The prosecutor for the case was trying to get a lengthier sentence for Evans. He said that she has never said anything about the destruction that she caused and the shame that she brought to Chicago. One of the witnesses was a quadriplegic man from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He is a music promoter who claimed that Evans never paid him the $262,900 that she owed him from the ticket sales revenue for a show that he held in 2008 at a venue that she owned. He said that it bankrupted him. Evans’ attorney stated that she had been shot at multiple times during her career as a police officer and had done a lot for the community so she should not have as large of a sentence.

What do you think?  Should she be sent to prison for five years or have a different sentence?

    The prosecutor said that her actions brought shame upon Chicago! Really now? I guess the 12 dead bodies every night isn’t a big deal then huh? Since nobody is being apprehended in this “Gov Project” of killings, guess they have to get their glory at her expense & call it Crime Fighting!

    I bet if she were a white cop, she wouldn’t be going to jail. They would probably put her on probation and community service, but she surely wouldn’t get any jail time.

    When will Blacks learn that although political office was created by and designed for theives, that non whites in office will also be put up as the sacrificial lambs to the naive public.

    She deserves to get a lot more time than five years. Her position in the community makes her even more accountable. This just proves even more for me that law enforcers are evil people.

    Seems like she was protected by the “Big Blue Wall” of law enforcement. They look out for each other, regardless of the crime.

    As usual not surprised.
    It’s obvious with this case and many other’s a vast % of these type of black’s who able to get hired in these type of job positions are unable to handle the responsibility of them and of course the money.
    This lady like so many women love to put men down for doing crime,mayhem and abuse of women.
    But this woman like many others at times are just as guilty.
    How come these type people never think of god when they are greedy and busy stealing this money with the dead white men on it?
    The symbolism of it is right in their faces and they still choose to steal this money.
    Members of the kkk and other hate groups against black’s love this.
    It proves their point over and over.
    I wonder will this wake up some of us to the fact of leaving this money alone especially when it does not belong to you.

      To Mr. Slaughter:
      If you think about it, this is exactly what whitey wants to see;blacks at eachother’s throats(while they try to conceal disputes amongst eachother)…They don’t want balcks to know that they fight eachother, for when we learn that they do, it exposes the fact that we have the knowledge that they are no better than any other race.
      It’s sort of like the troubled marrige. Some couples put on a good act(in public), while things are in disarray behind closed doors, then down the line all the dirst laungry is exposed(as in OPRAH’s X stepmother’s and her fathers situation).

    She had it all and blew it! We have degraded ourselves trying to do the same things that Whites do, when given the opportunity, we need to be better than them. Afraid she gets no sympathy from me! She deserves the five years, should have gotten more. Good jobs are hard to come by these days and she goes and blows it! No, I am not at her throat, she was at her own throat when she decided to steal! I don’t care what color you are when you are wrong, you are wrong!

    She should have received much more time. When will Blacks learn; when you attain a position of wealth/power, that carries massive responsibility and you cannot act like whites in these positions. You are still black.

    She took an oath to protect and serve, instead she stole and cheated the opposite. 1 yr for every 50k she stole from the city and it’s citizens.
    Then double that because the only thing worse than a criminal is a cop who takes an oath who’s a criminal!

    Okay, I get she was prosecuted for misappropriations.., BUT ALLLL! these investigations seem lump-sided goin one direction… There’s noway I can believe these self righteous conservatives aren’t elbows deep in corruption.. After Harlem’s Charles Rangel , I always believed there should be a better (cya) fight than this…and yet most black officials are dropping like flies (opposed to their squeaky clean counterparts)…
