Vernon Hills Teacher’s Aide Charged with Fatal Aggravated DUI

Christine Ahn, 29, turned herself into police on May 1 for the fatal alcohol-related crash that occurred this past Christmas Eve in Chicago. Ahn, who is charged with aggravated DUI, has resigned from her position as a teacher’s aide at Hawthorn Elementary District 73 in Vernon Hills. She was been employed by that school district since 2008.

Chicago Police spokesman Officer Laura Kubiak stated that Ahn was driving north on Western Ave in Chicago in the early morning on Christmas Eve when she struck 30 year old Enrique Lituma. Lituma, 30, was pronounced dead a short time after being rushed to a nearby hospital. Ahn submitted to a blood test at the time of the accident. Police received results in February, and resulted in the above charges this week. A spokesman for the Cook County States Attorneys Office said Ahn could spend up to 14 years in prison of found guilty. Conklin said bond was set at $25,000.
