Gee, a Repeat Offender
- A Mount Prospect woman who authorities say drunkenly struck a state trooper on I-294 Saturday had pleaded guilty to an aggravated DUI charge just days before and been sentenced to probation, according to Cook County court records.
Leslie W. Thurow, 59, was ordered held without bail for violating the terms of probation that were set Thursday, when she pleaded guilty in the previous incident. A ruling to hold her on $450,000 bail on charges that she struck the state trooper in the northbound lanes of the Tri-State Tollway near Berkeley Saturday afternoon was largely procedural.
Thurow also struck a van carrying seven people after driving away from the injured trooper, Assistant State’s Attorney Sean Brown, said Sunday in court.
Thurow is charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, aggravated DUI and aggravated DUI in an accident involving personal injury, all felonies, according to court records.
Thurow pleaded guilty last week to an aggravated DUI charge from earlier this year, according to court records.
Brown said Thurow also has a DUI-related conviction from 2008 and was driving without a valid driver’s license Saturday.
Pleaded guilty last week? And at least her third DUI? Why is she even permitted to own a car?
