Elgin woman charged with sixth DUI comes to court drunk
An Elgin woman charged with her sixth DUI had her bail revoked this week when she showed up for court intoxicated, court records show.
Sandra Uher, 54, of the 1200 block of Maroon Drive, was remanded to Cermak Hospital, which is part of the Cook County Jail, for evaluation on Thursday.
The hearing for the filing of pretrial motions was rescheduled for Tuesday in Rolling Meadows.
Uher’s latest arrest occurred in March after she ran a stop sign at Shales Parkway and Summit Street in Elgin and crashed into another car, police said. No one was injured in the accident. If convicted, Uher could face six to 30 years in prison.
6 DUI's? Good work Sandra. I like your commitment,and I love your judgement. Only problem here is she is obviously too poor to get a good lawyer. Because where I come from, DUI's get you probation and a 5k bill from your lawyer. But definitely no jail time unless you hit someone, and for the record that kid shouldn't have been jumping rope near that intersection anyways, he practically came out of nowhere.
