This robbery has traumatized her so much, she locks her doors when she is home now, and never done it before only if she were gone,or when she went to bed. I only hope that the judge punishes him to the fullest. lock him up and leave him there for a very long time.. I am here for you sis if you need me. you know who i am too. love you

Well his problem is that you always stick up for him, how can you tell the cab driver to move on, when he scared the crap out of her. What if someone did that to you Robin would you stick up for the person that robbed you or your close friend, a mother that has children. But then you always will stick up for him, so it don't matter. i think Chauncey needs to get a life, while they lock him up and throw away the key, that would be the best thing they would do for him, with you enabling his every move isn't helping him out. I think he should of had some tough love in his life instead of a mother like you that sticks up for him all the time. He was in prison long enough to be away from his drugs. he should of just stayed away from them. He has children of his own, why wouldn't he want to be out to play with them instead of being be hind bars his whole life.

Robin you are right he does have a problem but come on he robbed a mother of three, really how low is that? This poor woman has a problem going out of her house still and you never see her that much at night. Mind you this was a lady that was happy go lucky and would go any where for anyone at anytime. She has her doors lock at all times and her shades are always pulled. Rumer has it she isn't driving anymore either so not only did he cause her to stay in all the time but she lost her income to help support her family. The way I see it Robin your son owns this woman alot. She is a great mother but even has problems going to her childrens functions as she is always looking behind her and all around her. Her children are afraid also as they don't know who to trust anymore. Robin if u knew this lady you would understand why everyone is so upset about it. She is the nices person I have even know and TNT lost a very good driver. My children have asked me where is that nice lady that pick us in the cab. So Robin please help her by giving your son tough love. She told me all she wants is him to say he is sorry and why he did it. She has told people she don't hate him as she don't hate anyone. I just hope CHauncey gets help and does not ever do this again and I hope the taxi driver will be ok and back to herself. Just saying.

Stop giving him a pass! God forbid if he didn't look like us. The horrible words people would say on here ...

He deserves to be convicted of his crime and serve prison years.

Dont blame drugs or not having a loving mommy as justified excuses.

God forbid that woman had a heart condition and died due of the trauma of being robbed.

No, we need to stop giving passes all because the criminal looks like us and grew up locally.

He deserves prison and not more excuses to justify his criminal behavior.

I really hope he isnt out. If he is that poor women will never leave her house again. If someone hired him do rob her then I hope he tells as if that is the case it may help him in the long run. Intresting guy i agree with you who cares if he grew up here and what he looks like he needs to be put away for a long long time. Intresting guy if u knew this woman you would really understand why people are so upset with. JUST SAYING

Grabbing can just be touching. Did he try to strangle her? Report said no threats.
She needs to find a different line of work if she can't deal with an occasional jerk. Giving drunks a ride home could get out of hand if she is a wimp.
he is a druggie

He is nothing but a druggie and a low life. He shouldn't have tried to rob her. What he needs to do is get a job. Work for a living that is what people do. He might not of gotten anything from her. But look like hi4304s record is just getting longer.

I just read what happened. Very scary for the female driver. He takes her to an isolated area. If I was a female I would think he would want to sexually assault. I assume she unlocked the door and ran away.
Perhaps, the cabs can be equip with cameras or partitions given it's only a few on the road from TNT.
If he does get away with a misdemeanor (he has a lengthy record already), you don't want this to give other idiots the idea to start a dangerous trend.
owning a gun in a cab isn't the answer and can go bad in so many ways.
I think partitions, cameras, and driver safety lessons from local police will help protect cab drivers better than a gun.
I wouldn't feel comfortable driving in a cab knowing the driver has a gun. He / she could want to harm me or a female client because of course guns can be used for other means than "protection".
Just so you know he did not take her to an isolated area it was on the corner of knox and clark it was about 10:30 at nite he did OT have ba weapin and he did it for more $ to buy more crack he has a drug problem he's not a rapist I'm NOT sticking up for him what he did was wrong but I had to clear that up and he does need to go back to jail for a while and grow up!!
bye bye chauncey

I don't know what in the hell went wrong with Chauncey,it seems like he has totally flipped his lid or something.I have never known him to rob from his supposed friends and steal their t.v.,child's ps3 and laptop right out of her house the way he did and I was there that night,she told him if he needed a place to stay he could stay there and that's the thanks she got! I just hope the stealing from his good friend and the cab driver was all worth it to him because now he'll be going right back to prison where he just came from. It wouldn't be worth it to me,but maybe he likes it in there,who knows? Chauncey seemed to fuck a few to many people over and things won't be forgotten even if he does go back to prison because people will still be just as pissed at the thoughtof being ripped off and stole from,so they'll be waiting for him to get out when he does. Sorry Chaunc,but you really made me change my mind about what kind of friend and person you are.See you when you get paroled and so will everyone else you ripped off and robbed! I didn't think you would ever be that much of a scumbag,what happened? I hope once the crack clears out of your mind that you actually sit back and realize how many people you've screwed over in just a short amount of time.
