This Chicago DUI lawyer has posted here and here about the harsh and ever increasing penalties for those guilty of DUI. DUI offenders tend to be non-violent offenders with no other criminal background. Can you imagine going to prison for a DUI? This man just got out and still his debt isn’t over.

A Mercer County man with a history of drunk driving convictions has been paroled.Well he hasn’t worked in over four years so my guess is the $10,000 in court fees and restitution will not be paid any time soon.
According to the Illinois Department of Corrections, Bruce Fish was released from Thomson Correctional Center on Monday of this week.
Fish served less than half of his latest ten year sentence. He was sent to prison most recently in 2006 after police stopped him for drunk driving in Cable, Illinois.
Fish still owes nearly 10-thousand dollars in court fees and restitution. He will be on parole for another year.
