A McHenry woman was arrested earlier this week after police in Woodstock allege she was driving under the influence for her seventh time, court documents show.
Laura G. Rodriguez, 46, of the 600 block of Waters Edge Drive in McHenry, was charged with two counts of aggravated driving under the influence, two counts of driving on a revoked or suspended license, driving under the influence of alcohol and two counts of improper traffic lane usage.
Officers noticed Rodriguez’s 2018 Jeep Compass make unsafe lane changes on Route 120 near Lamb Road in Woodstock around 1 p.m. on July 18, court documents show.
Officers with the Woodstock Police Department conducted a traffic stop on Rodriguez’s vehicle on Lamb Road north of Route 120.
Rodriguez was not supposed to be driving a vehicle because her license had been revoked from previous driving under the influence cases, according to a criminal complaint.
Officers determined Rodriguez was also driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the stop, the complaint said.
A grand jury indictment said Rodriguez has two prior convictions for driving with a suspended or revoked license.
The indictment said Rodriguez also has six previous violations for driving under the influence of alcohol.
The driving under the influence cases occurred in McHenry County in 2002, 2004, twice in 2014, 2021 and once in Wisconsin in 2004.
Rodriguez has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The most serious charge, aggravated driving under the influence, is a Class X felony and carries six to 30 years in prison if convicted.
She remains held in the McHenry County Jail on a $100,000 bond. She would need to post $10,000 cash in order to be released.
A status of trial date hearing is scheduled for September 16.
