Ryan LeVin Gets Eight Months in Illinois Prison
When LeVin decided to go to Florida to face charges related to killing two men in Fort Lauderdale with his Porsche 911 Turbo, he didn't tell authorities in Illinois that he was going -- which was a problem, since he was already on parole after pummeling another person with his car in the Windy City.
Now he'll have to serve the next eight months in the pen, likely just because he didn't let his parole officer know he was leaving.
LeVin's projected release date is March 8, according to the Tribune.
The paper says there were 300 parole-violation hearings yesterday, and LeVin was the only one to show up with his legal team -- Fort Lauderdale's David Bogenschutz, as well as Chicago-area lawyer Ed Genson, who reportedly also defends singer R. Kelly.
An Illinois Department of Corrections worker had previously told reporters that she didn't expect LeVin to spend more than six months in Illinois prison for the parole violation, although that didn't work out as planned -- LeVin's time behind bars will total nine months including the time he's spent in the Illinois prison awaiting his hearing before the parole board.
LeVin's time in prison is an extension of his original two-year sentence in 2006 for hitting a Chicago cop with his car, since he was granted parole after serving only six months.
His prior convictions that didn't include prison time were cocaine possession, fleeing from police, and many, many traffic violations.
According to the Tribune, a Broward prosecutor confirmed that LeVin's prison sentence will count as time served for his two years of house arrest in Fort Lauderdale, and he will then spend the next ten years on probation.
