A former Aurora man is facing up to 30 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to his 26th charge of driving on a revoked license in the past 13 years.
Because of his criminal history, Paul Woodard, 35, of Chicago, faces at least six years in prison and as many as 30 years, Kane County prosecutors said.
On Thursday, he pleaded guilty to aggravated driving on a revoked license and drunken driving, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors said on June 2, 2011, Montgomery police spotted Woodard driving 44 mph in a 30 mph zone and veering over the center line near Fourth Street and Melrose Avenue.
When the officer tried to stop him, Woodard pulled into a driveway in the 1200 block of Fourth Street, jumped out of the car and started running away, throwing plastic bags as he ran, prosecutors said. He was taken into custody, and then vomited in a squad car.
You have wonder what kind of a justice system allows individuals to repeatedly break the law with impunity. Cook County is such a pathetic excuse for a governmental entity. Criminals literally have free reign until they literally kill someone. The system is so corrupt and dysfunctional at almost every level and the average Joe gets stuck with a hefty tax bill.
