21-Year-Old Hoffman Estates Man Sentenced to 4 Years in Fatal DUI

In November of 2010, 21-year-old Jay Yi of Hoffman Estates was involved in a single-car crash which resulted in the death of his passenger, 20-year-old Christopher Vega. Yi had a blood alcohol content of .191, more than twice the legal limit, and plead guilty to aggravated DUI.

Yi was out on $200,000 bond, but last month his bond was revoked and he was sentenced to four years in prison for failing to comply with the conditions of the bond. Yi failed to meet with pretrial service officers and failed two drug tests. A Cook County Judge at the Rolling Meadows Courthouse recommended Yi for the Illinois Department of Correction Impact Incarceration Program, otherwise known as boot camp. If admitted to boot camp, Yi will be required to complete a 120-day program consisting of military-style training, substance abuse counseling, and life skills training and education. If he fails to complete the program or if the program does not accept him, it will be mandatory that he serve 85 percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole.

I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
