Former West Chicago Man Sentenced to 10 Years for 11th DUI

Michael J. Picon, 42, formerly of West Chicago was sentenced last week to 10 years in prison for his 11th DUI arrest in the past 20 years. Picon pled guilty in January to his most recent DUI and aggravated driving with a revoked license stemming from a 2012 arrest near Sugar Grove. According to prosecutors, he was charged on April 16, 2012 when an officer checked on his vehicle which was pulled over on the side of the road. The officer claimed that Picon smelled of alcohol and had an open can of beer from a 12-pack found in the vehicle. According to police, he failed sobriety tests and admitted to drinking at a friend’s house earlier.

Picon was facing a Class X felony on the DUI, punishable by a prison term of 6 to 30 years. He was facing a Class 3 felony on the driving on revoked charge. A Kane County judge sentenced Picon to 10 years on the DUI and a concurrent 5 years for the revoked license charge. Prosecutors reported that Picon had been arrested 25 times since 1992 for driving on a suspended or revoked license out of DuPage, Kane, and Rock Island.

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.
