After killing his wife in a car accident seven years ago, one man was told to get counseling and visit AA meetings as part of his sentence. However, despite being told to get help for drinking, he was brought before a judge last week on a new DUI charge. G.J.J., 50, was involved in a drunk driving accident seven years ago that resulted in the death of his wife. At that time, the judge ordered him to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, meet with a substance abuse counselor and give lectures to teenagers about the dangers of drinking and driving.
Despite receiving treatment, G.J.J. was found intoxicated behind the wheel again last May. He went before a judge in Will County to enter his plea of guilty for drunken driving this past week. News sources say that as a result of his guilty plea, G.J.J. will be sentenced this coming May for his DUI offense.
