Carpentersville Man Sentenced to 8 Years for 9th DUI Conviction

William Reece, 49, of Carpentersville was sentenced Wednesday to eight years in prison for his ninth DUI conviction. According to Kane County officials, he was convicted after pleading guilty to one count of aggravated driving under the influence on March 7th. The DUI was charged as a Class X felony because it occurred after a fifth DUI conviction. Reece also pled guilty to driving on a revoked license, charged as a Class 4 felony.

The DUI stems from a traffic stop conducted by the West Dundee police on September 1st. Police allege that Reece’s vehicle crossed the center line. Upon further investigation, police claim he had slurred speech, glassy, red eyes and a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. Reports state that he had difficulty retrieving his license and dropped the contents of his wallet on the car floor along with his cellphone. Reece refused to take field sobriety tests and admitted drinking. He consented to a breath test at the station, registering a BAC of .219 percent, almost three times the legal limit.

Between 1987 and 2007, Reece had eight DUI convictions occurring in Kane County and Lake County resulting in three prison terms. Reece is eligible for day-for-day credit during his prison sentence, effectively cutting his length of stay in half. He was also given credit for 235 days served in custody at Kane County Jail since his arrest.
