Special Report preview: Drunk Driving in Morgan County

By Ryne Turke on September 10, 2015 at 9:00am

Are drunk drivers slipping through the cracks of the legal system in Morgan County?

After our special investigation last month on domestic violence cases passing through the Morgan County Courthouse, WLDS/WEAI News has shifted the attention to individuals with multiple DUI offenses and how those cases are handled by the State’s Attorney’s Office.

The special report, which will be broadcasted on WLDS’ “What’s On Your Mind?”, includes interviews with Morgan County State’s Attorney Bobby Bonjean, Morgan County MADD co-founder George Murphy and Morgan County Chief Probation Officer Todd Dillard.

The investigation reviews DUI statistics in Morgan County, breaks down the criminal history and handling of two individuals convicted of multiple DUI offenses and covers new legislation signed into law that limits drunk driving in Illinois.

The special report will air at around 10:45 a.m. on WLDS 1180. To view our previous report click here.
