Antoine Walker Recounts Home Invasion

Antoine Walker, victim of a home invasion in 2007 (one of a few Chitown players hit that summer), recounted the scary ordeal in court last week. WLS-AM 890 has the details: “A Cook County jury on Friday evening is deliberating the fate of a man accused of tying up former NBA star Antoine Walker and his assistant in an armed home invasion three years ago. Demorris Hill, 28, is one of four men charged in the July 9, 2007, armed robbery and home invasion of Walker’s River North home… On Wednesday, Walker testified, detailing his account of the attack. ‘I just wanted to follow directions and keep my head down,’ he said. Walker testified he was in his garage sitting in his Cadillac Escalade waiting for his assistant Tyrone Ivery to return from Niketown when three men accosted him. Walker said the $1,500 in cash and cell phone he had on his lap fell as he got up and ‘listened’ to the instructions the men gave him as they escorted him back inside the house with their weapons… The men took Walker’s briefcase that had $10,000 to $20,000 inside as well as 15 to 16 custom-made watches, cuff links and a diamond necklace, Walker said. Then they forced Walker and Ivery into Walker’s walk-in closet and duct-taped their ankles, arms and mouth before asking them to count to a thousand, Walker said. One man later returned and asked for the keys to Walker’s Mercedes CL550. Last year, Antoine Larkins was sentenced to 21 years in prison for his involvement in the crime. Gregory Reedfields, the getaway driver, was sentenced to four years. Hill and Larkins were also charged in the 2007 break-in at New York Knicks Center Eddy Curry’s Burr Ridge home.”

    I hope Walker gets his dough or assets back. He needs it.

    So you get ONLY 21 years for robbing someone and tying them up at gunpoint but get 30+ years and sometimes life for dealing? Boy, you gotta to love that “justice” system.

    Nothing wrong with sentencing dealers, JT. Not sure why you have to compare the two.

  • Hammer

    15-16 custom made watches? Dam. No wonder Employee #8 broke. I can understand 2-3. And that’s just on f****n watches! Just extravagant,out of control,confessions of a shopaholic,mc hammer spending!

  • JTaylor21

    Teddy, there’s nothing wrong with sentencing dealers(even though I believe that dealing is NOT a crime) but 30+ years and in some cases life is too harsh while people have commited much worse crimes and gone to prison for much less time.

    JTaylor, I live in Mexico. 30 years is just fair for dealers, is way more serious than a robber.

    A lot of people die here just for that dealer to work.

    @ pablasso, so how many years should the head of cigarette and alchohol companies go to jail for? Because the products they’re distributing kill far more than illegal drugs.

  • EtheKnickfan

    Doesnt he know any rappers? 16-17 custom watches and no pitbulls? Notice you aint NEVER heard of Mike Vick house gettin robbed. Cmon man at least ADT.

  • EtheKnickfan

    Nationally televised home invasion.Great way to erase that custom watch credit card bill.

    @Bmack oh that makes it a lot better. I don’t care about beheaded guys because other people is dying by their choice.

  • JTaylor21

    Pablasso, you just said that I don’t care because other people are dying by their choice. Don’t people that buy drugs, buy them because they want to? Do the dealers put a gun to their heads and force them to buy those drugs? NO people use drugs because it’s their choice not because dealers force them to. It’s the same thing with cigarrate companys and fast-food joints.

  • notblack

    Im notblack and i know that deals kill of thier comition and alot incents get kill inbeetwen in this mess if you move large amonts of [some drug] its liky that nabouhoods are destroyed in the making and dealing of [some drug] they cant count the amounts of crime behind dealing so they just give em one big sentence.

    JTaylor, I’m not in favor of cigarette or alcohol companies, it just happens that they’re business in our countries are legal. If you don’t see all the crime behind illegal drug dealing I just don’t know what to say.

    Maybe you should search about Matamoros (A drug lord killed, the army was fighting commandos for about 12 hours. There was more than 50 killed, but of course the goverment reported less) and Morelia (Cars were burned on the highways of the city to avoid anyone entering or going out, gas stations were burned, grenades in malls) for the events on the past 2 days. All of this is happening because they’re fighting the privilege to provide your favorite drug dealer.

    Its not just the drugs killing junkies.

  • toronto

    jtaylor is obviously a drug dealer too dumb to know that guys who do home invasions are either on drugs or using the money stolen for start up costs to deal themselves

  • ClydeSays

    As far as the watches, etc. I’d say it was Antoine’s business how he spent his money, but he was letting his rental properties fall apart while he spent money on cars & custom Rolexes…

  • Bmack

    @ pablasso, you do also realize that if drugs were made legal THAT ALL THE GANG VIOLENCE WOULD CEASE CONSIDERING THERE WOULD BE NO MORE GANGS.

    Drugs= fuel for gangs.

    Legalized drugs= no commision for gangs, hence no more gangs.

    Should’ve been strapped

  • Dirk Browitski

    If he wasn’t signing bad checks then this kinda stuff wouldn’t happen. This is what happens when you fvck around with the mob. Hopefully Toine can get his life together

    @Bmack, you try legalizing Cocaine and Heroine and see how that destroys a society. We not talking about the MJ here. Fact is, drug gangs and related turf wars have taken an enormous toll on people who are not addicts whether it is in Mexico, in border towns, or US inner cities. If you have seen ‘the wire’, you would know what I am talking about. Of course, the key is whether the guy who got 30 is high enough in the chain to make a difference.
