CHICAGO (AP) — A judge Thursday sentenced the boss of one of Chicago's most violent street gangs to 40 years behind bars, saying the Hobos boss had used his many talents "to advance the cause of evil."Gregory "Bowlegs" Chester, 40, led the South Side gang that prosecutors described as an "all-star team" of thieves and killers who cultivated a reputation for brutality to maintain their criminal empire.Chester was the first of the Hobos to be sentenced since jurors convicted six in January of a racketeering conspiracy that involved at least six slayings, including the 2013 shooting of a star government witness, Keith Daniels, in front of his two small stepchildren as they screamed a few feet away.A government filing says Chester displayed his brazenness by attending court during his recent conspiracy trial with a balloon stuffed with drugs in his system a day after a jail visitor handed him the contraband.
