Regional superintendent of schools pleads guilty to DUI

Yesterday, an Illinois regional superintendent of schools plead guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge. The 49-year old superintendent oversees four west-central Illinois counties.

The superintendent was charged with driving under the influence last month after being pulled over at 12:30 A.M. on Concord-Arenzville Road. In a plead deal, improper traffic lane use and operating an uninsured motor vehicle charges were dropped.

The court sentenced the superintendent to one year of court supervision. If he completes the court supervision without breaking its terms and conditions, the conviction will be removed from his record. In addition, the superintendent was issued $1,140 in fines and will have an ignition-interlock device in his vehicle for six months.
