Once upon a time, Royko was a bigtime, household name around Chicago.
After today, the same name will be associated with the big house.
A federal judge is scheduled to sentence the son of Chicago's best-known newspaper columnist, Mike Royko, on a charge of attempted bank robbery.
Authorities arrested Royko in April 2005 after he went into a Chicago bank with a ski mask and a fake bomb and demanded money.
He pleaded guilty to the attempted bank robbery charge last March.
Andersen ordered Royko jailed Aug. 6 after the defendant admitted he'd smoked marijuana while on bond. He said he had done so only one time.
Andersen said it was time for Royko to get on with his sentence and prepare to start a new life once he is released.
