The two men who carjacked a pizza delivery man last June were sentenced today to six years in prison.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office says the two Chicago men, Christopher Y. Norton, 21, of the 1400 block of Pratt, and Carletus Jackson, 22, of the 1300 block of Monticello, pled guilty to one count of vehicular invasion before Judge Larry Axelrod in Skokie district court.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office says the two Chicago men, Christopher Y. Norton, 21, of the 1400 block of Pratt, and Carletus Jackson, 22, of the 1300 block of Monticello, pled guilty to one count of vehicular invasion before Judge Larry Axelrod in Skokie district court.

Axelrod reportedly told the two they were lucky the incident hadn’t escalated and gotten them into even bigger trouble.

The two jumped Steve Walker as he was about to make a delivery on Tuesday evening, June 2, to an apartment building at 142-148 Clyde Ave.

They stole Walker’s car and crashed it into a tree while trying to flee the neighborhood. The car caught fire and was destroyed.

Neighbors, led by Omar Gutierrez, who saw the robbery from his apartment window, raised money to buy Walker a new car so he could get back to work.

    1. That was a short six years – Careful! Criminal on the loose!

      Apparently Careltus Jackson was released last week.

      This scumbag was supposed to be in the clink for 6 years!  He was sentenced about two years ago.

      Who is responsible for this decision?

      This guy admitted to severely beating up a pizza driver in broad daylight, stealing all of his money and his car.  He also had drugs in his possession.

      Now he is running around loose after only serving a third of his sentence.  Watch out pizza drivers.
