    Cop Who Beat Bartender Gets Probation

    Chicago Police Officer Anthony Abbate Gets Light Sentence For Beating Female Bartender

    CHICAGO (CBS) ―

    Chicago Police Officer Anthony Abbate was sentenced Tuesday to two years probation and anger management classes, after being convicted earlier this month of beating up a female bartender half his size.

    Cook County Criminal Court Judge John Fleming sentenced Abbate on Tuesday. He also imposed a home curfew from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and ordered Abbate to perform 130 hours of community service.

    "No one in recent memory ... has done more to tarnish the reputation of the Chicago Police Department than Anthony Abbate," Cook County Assistant State's Attorney LuAnn Snow said Tuesday.

    Prosecutors had asked for a prison term. But Fleming said he didn't see any aggravating factors to justify that.

    [​IMG] CBS 2 Hears You: What do you think about Abbate's sentence?

    "If I believed sentencing Anthony Abbate to prison would stop people from getting drunk and hitting people, I'd give him the maximum sentence," Fleming said.

    Abbate was found guilty of aggravated battery by Judge Fleming Fleming in connection with the February 2007 attack. The 250-pound Abbate's attack on 125-pound bartender Karolina Obrycka was captured by the bar's security camera and the video of the incident was shown around the world.

    Abbate acknowledged during the trial that he was drunk during the incident. But he said Obrycka pushed him first as she tried to remove him from behind the bar.

    "He's not a bad man, he did something bad," said defense attorney Peter Hickey.

    After the ensuing scandal, then-police Supt. Phil Cline suddenly announced his retirement, and Mayor Richard M. Daley appointed of current Supt. Jody Weis, who originally said fighting police misconduct would be a major part of his mission as superintendent.

    In the attack, Abbate kicked and pummeled Obrycka as she lay helpless on the floor at Jesse's Shortstop Inn on the city's Northwest Side.

    Obrycka had refused to serve Abbate any more drinks.

    The surveillance videotape of the incident showed two of Abbate's friends at the bar, offering Obrycka her money for medical bills and lost wages if she agreed not to prosecute Abbate.

    Abbate also planned to plant drugs in people's cars in the bar and charge patrons with drunken driving if Obrycka went forward with the case, attorneys for Obrycka said at the time. The judge ruled that he never showed his badge or said he was a cop, and therefore didn't abuse his position.

    At trial, Abbate claimed that Obrycka had attacked him first and tossed him around "like a rag doll." But the argument did not sway the judge.

    Abbate has been relieved of his duties and pay, Chicago Police Department spokesman Officer Robert Perez said.

    The department is looking into "separation proceedings," Perez said. Weis has said he wants Abbate fired.
