If you make something less expensive, you will see more of it. In this article, CWB Chicago looks at Cook County’s continuing efforts to make gun crime less expensive.
Rap star Herbert “G Herbo” Wright reached a plea deal with prosecutors who accused him of having a handgun in a limo near State and Roosevelt in February 2018. Two other men in the vehicle were also charged with having guns.
Wright and prosecutors struck a deal in which the rapper pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor carrying a firearm while prosecutors dropped four felony gun charges. Judge Matthew Coughlan sentenced him to two years probation, nine days time served, and levied a fine of $494.

Prosecutors said surveillance video captured images of Ricardo Ortiz pulling out a handgun in the garage at 240 East Illinois in August 2018. He allegedly fired the weapon at a security camera and then into the garage, striking a 20-year-old man in the abdomen, according to court records. The victim recovered from his injuries and identified Ortiz as the shooter, police said.
Ortiz was on second chance probation for burglary at the time of the incident. He also had pending cases for theft, narcotics, and probation violation. He repeatedly failed to appear in court and had been put on and taken off electronic monitoring in the months before the Streeterville incident.
In a deal with prosecutors, Ortiz received a sentence of one year with 499 days credit for time served in the gun case. Judge Timothy Chambers also sentenced him to concurrent terms of two years for manufacture-delivery of cannabis, two years for a burglary in Justice, Illinois, and three years for possession of fentanyl.
With time served and an anticipated 50% credit for good behavior, his parole date is set for Feb. 2, 2021.

Prosecutors accused 22-year-old Gerald Hunley of shooting at people in the 800 block of North Cambridge on June 9, 2018. He was a registered gun offender at the time due to a previous gun violation.
Hunley reached a deal with prosecutors in which he pleaded guilty to aggravated unlawful use of a weapon while the state dropped two counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm, two counts of being a felon in possession of a weapon, and three other felonies.
Judge Catherine Haberkorn sentenced him to six years in prison with 443 days credit for time served. With an anticipated 50% sentence reduction for good behavior, Hunley will be paroled in July 2021.

A man accused of orchestrating a mass shooting at a bar in Kansas City, Kansas last weekend could have been sentenced to nine years in prison for trafficking in contraband while behind bars, but a Kansas judge gave the murder suspect probation instead. Hugo Villanueva-Morales is still on the run after allegedly opening fire in a private bar Sunday, killing four people and wounding five more along with an accomplice, but he shouldn’t have been on the streets in the first place.
Villanueva-Morales was a violent felon serving time for aggravated robbery when he went before a judge last year on charges of trafficking contraband while behind bars. The judge in the case could have sentenced him to nearly a decade in prison, but decided on probation because he decided the criminal had “accepted responsibility.” As it turns out, this isn’t the first time Judge Michael Gibbens has caused an outry because of his decisions.
