Charges announced in fatal Steger crash


JOLIET – Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow announces that Cecil R. Conner, 22, of Steger, has been charge with four counts of Aggravated Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol in connection with a crash that resulted in the death of a 5-year-old boy in the early-morning hours of May 10.


Aggravated Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol is an enhanced Class 2 felony that carries a penalty of between 3-14 years in prison upon conviction.


The charges allege he was driving and involved in a motor vehicle collision that resulted in the death of the little boy and that:

  • The alcohol concentration in his blood or breath was .08 or higher;
  • He was driving under the influence of alcohol;
  • He was driving under the combined influence of alcohol and drugs, rendering him incapable of driving safely;
  • And he drove while there was cannabis in his blood, breath or urine.

The Will County State's Attorney's Office reminds the public that charges are not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
