A Woodstock man has been sentenced to probation for driving towards a crowd at a party near Marengo and hitting a pedestrian, causing the victim to suffer a serious leg injury.
Alfredo D. Jordan, 23, of the 200 block of Joseph Street in Woodstock, was initially charged in September 2021 with reckless conduct, two counts of driving under the influence of alcohol, driving without a license and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
A grand jury indictment filed in December charged Jordan with aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, two counts of aggravated driving under the influence causing bodily harm and aggravated reckless driving causing bodily harm.
The charges stem from an incident on September 6, 2021, where Jordan drove a vehicle in a reckless manner and hit a man, according to the indictment.
The victim sustained a severe laceration to his leg.
Jordan was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident, the indictment said.
The Northwest Herald reported that Jordan drove a vehicle onto a property in the 22600 block of Kishwaukee Valley Road in unincorporated Marengo, according to a police report obtained through a Freedom of Information Act Request.
Approximately 50 people, including children, were attending a party at the property at the time, the report said.
The victim was transported to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Huntley for treatment.
McHenry County sheriff’s deputies arrested Jordan a short time later after conducting a traffic stop on the vehicle he fled in, the Northwest Herald reported.
Jordan was released from custody after posting 10% of his $25,000 bond but was later charged in April with a domestic battery in Woodstock.
Jordan was then charged in August with aggravated driving under the influence in Boone County.
Court records show the man recently entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
He pleaded guilty last Tuesday to one count of aggravated driving under the influence causing an injury accident, a Class 4 felony, in exchange for his other charges being dismissed.
McHenry County Judge James Cowlin approved the plea deal and sentenced Jordan to two years of probation.
Cowlin also sentenced Jordan to 180 days in the county jail but credited him 180 days for time already served in custody, leading to his jail sentence being considered already served.
Jordan was also ordered to undergo a high-risk DUI evaluation and complete intensive outpatient addiction treatment, which he already completed, court records show.
Court records for Jordan’s Boone County driving under the influence charges show he was sentenced last month to three years in prison for that case.
