The woman accused of trying to rob a Loop Subway restaurant while wearing her Jimmy John’s uniform pleaded guilty yesterday. Cherene Slue also entered a guilty plea to charges that she held-up a nearby Dunkin’ Donuts the same week.
Slue was sentenced to two years probation on each count and was given credit for 58 days time served by Judge Neera Walsh, who approved the plea deal.
On January 14, still decked out in her Jimmy John’s t-shirt, 27-year-old Slue walked into the Subway at 604 South Wabash and handed the clerk a note: “I have a gun and give me $60,” it said.
When the Subway sandwich artist said he had no money, Slue insisted that she had a gun. The clerk walked to the back of the store and Slue left empty-handed, police say.
Police found Slue standing on the sidewalk about two blocks south of the Subway ten minutes later. A police lock-up guard reported that Slue told her “I did something stupid. I just needed money.”
In her left jacket pocket, prosecutors said, was a note: “I have a gun. I don’t want to hurt you. Please don’t speak, just give me $60 now!!”
A few days after being charged in the Subway case, police went to Slue’s home and arrested her again. She had been identified as the person who robbed Dunkin’ Donuts at 1231 South Wabash on January 12.
According to a Dunkin’ Donuts worker, Slue walked into the donut shop, stated that she had a gun, and demanded that the clerk hand over $40. The worker handed over exactly $40 and Slue reportedly left satisfied.
