Posted on in DUI

illinois-aggravated-duiA Kenosha man is being held on $250,000 bond after he was charged with driving under the influence. The man allegedly crashed an SUV into a north suburban townhouse early in the morning on October 25. Driving under the influence in Illinois can carry strict penalties.

A Lake County judge charged Adam R. Bileck, 32, with aggravated driving under the influence, driving with a revoked driver’s license, driving without a valid driver’s license, and leaving the scene of the accident, according to the Chicago Tribune. His SUV reportedly veered off the road the morning of October 25, striking the house at 450 Patriot Drive in Hainsville before bursting into flames. The fire spread through the house.

After the accident, Bileck reportedly fled the scene of the accident and hid under a pickup truck a few blocks away. He was discovered a few hours later when the owner of the truck tried to leave for work. Bileck allegedly fled again, attempting to hide in a marshy area off Hainesville Road, but was apprehended by police. He was taken to Advocate Condell Hospital for treatment, but was released into police custody later Saturday evening.

In Illinois, aggravated DUI (causing serious bodily harm) is considered a Class 4 Felony, and carries a penalty of up to 12 years in prison. This is a serious offense and may be reserved for those who are charged on a multiple DUI-related offense.
