A fashion statement and completing the circle

Although disputed by some, the inner-city trend of wearing of saggy pants probably got its start in prisons and jails and was imported to the streets by ex-cons.

This week, that trend came full circle when an armed robber known as the 'Saggy Pants Robber' was sentenced to 26 years in prison.
The Fort Lauderdale stick-up man, whose droopy wardrobe earned him the nickname "Saggy Pants Robber" and whose hold-up spree ended after he was shot in the buttocks in 2009, will be trading his trousers for prison garb.

Luke Singletary, 21, was sentenced Thursday to 26 years in prison after pleading guilty to a host of armed robberies across Broward in 2009, according to information provided by the office of Wilfredo A, Ferrer, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. When Singletary was nabbed that year, he was shot in the [ass] by Broward sheriff's deputies.
