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 aggravated battery, 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 THAT HAVING THE BEST CHICAGO CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY CAN HELP ANYONE IN ANY TYPE OF CRIMINAL CIRCUMSTANCE.
