WAUKEGAN, Illinois — A judge has upheld the conviction of a woman accused of aggravated DUI in the car crash death of a girl in suburban Chicago.
The News-Sun reports (http://bit.ly/W0TRGo ) the Lake County judge denied a motion Thursday challenging the state law used to convict Carly Rousso in May for the 2012 death of the 5-year-old girl.
The 19-year-old is accused of inhaling computer dust cleaner before driving onto a sidewalk and killing Jaclyn Santos-Sacramento in Highland Park. Rousso's lawyer says the state law used in the conviction is unconstitutionally vague and doesn't name the dust cleaner.
Rousso previously pleaded guilty to reckless homicide.
A status hearing for sentencing is scheduled for July 14. Rousso faces up to 14 years in prison.
