Higginbotham Arrested Facing Once Again Another DUI Charge
He does it again. A truly sad story. Almost exactly 18 months after Glen
Higgenbotham had finished the court-ordered punishment for the drunk driving
"murder" and killing a 10-year-old girl, he had received an
additional two arrests for a DUI.
The first DUI arrest happened about five months after this man from Yorkville
was released fom the prison sentence he received which was in direct correlation
for his conviction in May 1999 for the very famous DUI car crash that
killed the sweet, innocent Candace Graham. The second happened shortly
or a few months later, Christmas Day.
The following month of January, Higginbotham was facing 2 court dates for
both of the seperate D.U.I. cases.
He definitely does not have a crystal clear record from the past. Another
case was when he was arrested for racing 81 miles per hour in a 35 mph
zone. with a blood alcohol level more than 2 times the legal limit when
he annihilated the car containing the little girl.
Poor little Candace Graham wasn't wearing her seat belt, and from the
force of the collision was catapulted into the back seat of the automobile.
Her mother was coming out of a convenience store parking lot. The most
unfortunate thing was that her Mother, Constance Graham was ironically
intoxicated as well. It's unbelievable to think that both parties
were intoxicated making the incident that much more traumatic.
The conviction for Higginbotham came in 2000 for reckless homicide and
mandated 7 years in prison. Ironically, this term was served at the same
time as 14 year sentence he had been given in December 99' for a convicted
theft, and posession of a stolen vehicle.
Through the dates of May 2000 through he was incarcerated, then served
2 years on parole. In December 2010, months after he was released on parole
(completed on July 9, 2010), Joliet police found him yet again. He was
busted by authorities in a car with the engine running with 1/2 a bottle
of vodka lying next to him as he was slumped over behind the wheel.
Once again Higginbotham was charged with a
DUI, driving on a revoked license, and was attending a court date on January
9, 2010 in Will County. In March 2010, he was charged and later pleaded
guilty to driving on a revoked license and speeding.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO LEARN FROM THIS STORY IS THAT HIGGINBOTHAM
REPEATEDLY BROKE THE LAW AND HAD A FULL HISTORY OF CRIMINAL EVENTS THAT
WILL TARNISH HIS RECORD FOREVER. IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER
