Ex-Cook County Commissioner Beavers gets 6-month prison sentence

The prison population needs to make room for another corrupt, Chicago politician.

Former Cook County Commissioner and ex-Chicago alderman William Beavers is sentenced Wednesday to six months in prison for failing to pay taxes on thousands of dollars he took from his campaign fund, and then spending it on gambling and other personal expenses.

He was also sentenced to one year supervision and a $10,000 fine.

Prosecutors wanted him to get a 21 month prison sentence.

Beavers smiled upon hearing his sentence, and cracked a joke afterwards as to why he didn’t ask the judge for leniency.

“And like I said, I ain’t begging for nothing. I don’t beg my woman. So, you know I wouldn’t go beg the judge,” said Beavers.

Beavers plans to appeal his sentence.
