As September quickly approaches, Brendan Bukalski of Johnson Law Group
sets a fatality case for trial which is scheduled to take place on the 22nd of that month. The defendant being tried is a 22 year old Illinois State
University student who was charged with aggravated
driving under the influence back in January.
Hit-and-Run Accident Results in Death
The offense involved a hit-and-run accident which ultimately resulted in
the death of a fellow ISU student. Although the accident occurred early
in the morning of January 24, motorists and police officers did not come
across the victim in the street until 8:30 AM that same day.
The defendant pleaded guilty to failure to report to an accident involving
a fatality. An additional count for failure to report to an accident with
injury, however, was dismissed. Police reports indicate that the defendant
admitted to attending a party the night before the accident where he did
in fact consume alcohol.
Later in the afternoon on January 24, investigators found the vehicle that
was allegedly involved in the accident. At first, the defendant said that
he did not know how the car’s windshield was shattered. Additional
reports said that the defendant appeared to have been drinking.
Attorney Bukalski has been working tirelessly on the details of this case
in order to give his client the best possible outcome. With his many years
of experience and track record of success, Attorney Bukalski looks forward
to the September trial with confidence.
