Onofrio “Josh” Lorusso, 20, on probation for a 2009 DUI accident which resulted in the death of his friend, faces resentencing after authorities were alerted of his recent underage drinking arrest in Des Plaines. His deceased friend’s grandmother saw Lorusso’s name in her local Des Plaines newspaper and alerted Kane County probation.
A petition to revoke Lorusso’s Kane County probation was filed and a Kane County judge set bail at $10,000. The Assistant State’s Attorney had asked the judge to set bail at $250,000. Lorusso has a clean probation record and has given numerous speeches to community groups and victim impact panels on the hazards of driving under the influence. Lorusso could be resentenced on the DUI charge on February 9th.
