Bank robber tries to excape from jail

CHICAGO (AP) It sounds likes a scene from one of the "Mission: Impossible" movies.

An escape from a high-rise Chicago jail. Now, a bank robber is getting three and a-half years tacked on to his sentence. Kenneth Conley pleaded guilty to a felony escape charge. Authorities say he and a cellmate used a rope made from sheets and dental floss to descend 17 stories.

Both men weren't free for long, as they were soon caught. At his sentencing yesterday, the Chicago Sun-Times reports Conley told the judge to "stick it." The additional time is being added to 20 years Conley is already serving for robbery.
