A man who invoked the Pulse nightclub shooting while making threats against Boystown nightclubs and various individuals has been sentenced to seven concurrent 42-month prison terms.
The June 21 sentencing of the man making the threats, Shane Sleeper, was first reported June 22 by the CWB Chicago website.
Sleeper pled guilty to four counts of harassment, threatening to kill; three counts of telephone harassment, threatening to kill; impersonating an attorney; and impersonating a police officer. Various other charges, among them making false terroristic threats, were dropped in a plea deal.
Sleeper was initially arrested for making the threats Feb. 20, 2018, then was mistakenly released on May 1 of that year. He was apprehended in Uptown two days later.
With an anticipated reduction for good behavior, and credit for time already served, Sleeper might be eligible for parole in November of this year.
