Bianchi Continues Quest to Keep Drunk Drivers Off the Road

One way of doing that is to send them to prison.

David S. Prescott will be an example of that after having been sentenced to ten years in prison. With time off for good behavior, he’ll be out in half that that.

Here is the press release from McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi’s office:


Louis A. Bianchi, McHenry County State’s Attorney, reports that Defendant David S. Prescott was sentenced to 10 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections today following a conviction for his 7th DUI offense.

Prescott was found guilty of the Class X Felony DUI following a 3 day jury trial prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorneys Jeffrey Bora and Ryan Blackney.

On the day of his arrest, Deputy Thomas Jones of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office witnessed the defendant operating an ATV on a public roadway after leaving a liquor store with a case of beer attached to the rear.

The defendant failed a battery of field sobriety tests and refused to submit to chemical testing.  He was subsequently arrested.

The offense was punishable by a sentence of between 6 and 10 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Noting the defendant to have over 8 prior sentences to the Illinois Department of Corrections, Assistant State’s Attorney Ryan Blackney asked the Court to sentence the defendant to a prison term of 15 years.

  1. Good work from the SA’s office. Having lived through the Gary Pack years Lou Bianchi is a breath of fresh air. We have a good thing and the Pack people are still around and do not like it.
