To make complex, hot-button concepts like immigration and constitutional rights understandable for third-graders, Butterfield School in Libertyville invited U.S. District Judge Samuel Der-Yeghiayan this month.
But initially, the youngsters were eager to hear about the bad guys.
Der-Yeghiayan, the first immigrant of Armenian descent to be named a federal judge, recounted one high-profile case: the bank robber who made a bold escape from a Chicago high-rise jail using bed sheets last December.
