anyone who thinks she'll get life in prison needs to check their dosage. agg dui is a maximum 7 year sentence. she was charged with 2 counts of that for some reason. the rest of her offenses are misdemeanors. shell plead guilty of agg dui and the rest will get thrown out in the plea agreement. her sentences will run concurrent, she'll probly get 5 years and do 85% of that. its just how illinois rolls. mark these words, you'll see.....
