    How in the world did this guy get so far?

    Robert Maday was securely shackled this time around.

    The man who escaped from Cook County states attorney investigators and went on a two-day crime spree last month appeared in court this morning so prosecutors could try to delay his Oct. 30 sentencing for bank robberies he committed prior to his fugitive jaunt.

    US Attorneys want more time to investigate his flight and wrack up more charges, according to the Chicago Breaking News Center.

    The judge didn’t let the Maday’s two-day fugitive spree go with out mention.

    "I think we all know that events have transpired since the last time we were together," U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman said as Maday stood chained before his bench.

    Maday is scheduled to be sentenced for numerous bank jobs, and faces up to 15 years in prison for the crimes he committed prior to escaping. But prosecutors think Maday’s “adventure” will affect his sentencing.
