Shannard Dyer Court Appearance on Agg DUI charges

 

JOLIET – Shannard Dyer is scheduled to appear in court at 1:30 p.m. in Courtroom 305 at the Will County Courthouse, 14 W. Jefferson St., Joliet IL.   Mr. Dyer will appear via video camera.

 

Formal charges of Aggravated Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (6 counts) were filed Monday afternoon. Bond was set at $750,000. The defendant must post 10 percent, or $75,000, to secure his release while awaiting trial.

 

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.
