LITH woman gets 5th DUI (3 in July)
August 2, 2013
"Houston, we have a problem." Only Houston doesn't; McHenry County does!
The Northwest Herald reported today that a Lake in the Hills woman, Tiara Norris, 30, was arrested in Kane County on her 5th DUI! Three of the DUIs (two were in Gilberts (Kane County)) were in July (last month).
According to the Northwest Herald, in May 2012 Norris was sentenced to two years probation for aggravated DUI. The paper says the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor.
Don't most probations contain a condition that the person is not to violate any laws? So, when Norris was arrested on the next DUI, why wasn't the McHenry County State's Attorney Office in court to revoke her probation?
The Northwest Herald did not open a Comment section. I wonder why ...
Here's her McHenry County Court record for driving:
4/27/11 Speeding 11-14. $120 fine.
8/27/12 Lake in the Hills. DUI (2) dismissed. Summary Suspension (rescinded). Endanger life/health of a child. Dismissed.
9/5/12 Crystal Lake. Failure to reduce speed; nolle prossed. Failure to give info/render aid; nolle prossed. (Was this a hit-and-run?)
12/12/12 Aggravated DUI with passenger under 16 (Class 2 Felony); nolle prossed. Endanger life/health of child; nolle prossed. Driving under the influence (Class A Misdemeanor): $3507 fines, costs, fees. 174 days in jail (stayed). Judge Graham. (She got a huge break here!)
5/7/13 Improper traffic lane usage. $170 fine, costs, fees. Online 4-hr. traffic school. (Why not make her go and sit in a class?)
July 2013 Three (3) DUIs!
