State's attorney seeking special prosecutor in DUI case

A special prosecutor may be appointed in a case involving an Illinois police officer who is facing a drunk driving charge in connection with a Jan. 19 motor vehicle accident that claimed the life of one of her colleagues. The motion to appoint a special prosecutor was made by the Will County State's Attorney's Office to avoid a possible conflict of interest. The 12-year veteran of the Joliet Police Department has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and driving too fast for prevailing road conditions.
