Woman Driving Home from Funeral Arrested for DUI

 Posted on January 27, 2013 in DUI/DWI

Woman Driving HomeFour women were on their way home from a funeral early on Wednesday night. The driver, Cindy Giron, claimed that they were being ‘chased’ by a vehicle which caused her to hit a concrete planter box that divided the road. They were driving east on Madison Street and just passing Bishop at 12:50 am when the single car accident occurred.

The damage done to Giron’s car made it not drivable. The police who responded to the scene noticed all the girls were out of the car, including Giron’s sister who was lying flat on the pavement, which had Giron visibly shaken. She continually asked the officers what she “did to her sister” and questioned if her sister was going to die while crying uncontrollably. Luckily, no one involved was seriously hurt although they were transported to local hospitals.

As the authorities were cleaning up the accident and assessing the damage done, they came across a gallon jug of Carlo Rossi wine which was three quarters empty. The women had also had been drinking wine earlier in the night at the funeral. When Giron was tested, her blood alcohol level was 0.246, which is over three times the legal limit of .08.

She was charged with felony aggravated DUI and two counts misdemeanor DUI. Giron was also ticketed for negligent driving, driving without a license, illegal transportation of alcohol and failure to produce proof of insurance. Charges for driving under the influence can receive very harsh sentencing. To ensure that your rights are protected, contact a supportive criminal defense attorney in Cook County today.
