Man Involved in Fatal DUI Sent Back to Prison on Two New DUIs

Glen Ray Higginbotham Jr., 34, of Yorkville was sentenced in Will County on Monday to 8 years in prison for two DUI arrests that occurred in 2010 and 2011 (4 years on each count). These arrests come after he served time in prison in 1999 for a drunken-driving crash that killed at 10-year-old girl in Lockport. At that time, Higginbotham was sentenced to 7 years in prison for reckless homicide. His driving privileges were revoked in 2000.

Candace Graham was a passenger in her mother’s car when Higginbotham crashed into the passenger side just before midnight on May 4, 1999 as they were pulling out of a convenient store. According to police, he was speeding 81 mph in a 35-mph zone. Police say he was legally intoxicated and had cocaine in his system. Reportedly, Constance Graham later admitted that she was also intoxicated when the incident occurred. At the time of the crash, Higginbotham was serving suspended sentences on convictions for theft, possessing a stolen motor vehicle, and aggravated battery.

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.
