Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon has charged 49-year-old Jolie R. Dubinski with the offenses of:
- Criminal damage to government supported property, Class 3 felony
- Aggravated DUI – no insurance, Class 4 felony
- Resisting a police officer, Class A misdemeanor
- Disorderly conduct – breach of peace, Class C misdemeanor
Kane County prosecutors allege that at about 4 p.m. June 23, 2020, multiple motorists called 911 about a driver who ran a stop sign and nearly caused a crash at Bunker Road and Main Street in Blackberry Township, as well as shouted threats and racial epithets at other drivers.
Kane County Sheriff’s deputies responded and upon making contact with Dubinski, the driver, noted an odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle, and found 11 empty 50 ml (1.7 ounce) liquor bottles.
While talking to Dubinski, the deputy noted multiple signs of impairment. After the deputy arrested Dubinski and put her in the police vehicle, she allegedly damaged the rear video camera and other parts of the vehicle’s interior, causing an estimated $1,300 in damage. Dubinski then uttered numerous racial epithets and threats at the deputies.
Dubinski appeared June 24, 2020, in Kane County bond court. Kane County Judge Michael Noland set Dubinski’s bail at $25,000, with 10 percent ($2,500) to apply for bond. If Dubinski posts bond, she is prohibited from drinking alcohol. She remains in custody at the Kane County jail.
Noland set Dubinski’s next court appearance for 9 a.m. July 15, 2020, in Courtroom 311 at the Kane County Judicial Center.
The charges against Dubinski are not proof of guilt. Dubinski is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the state’s burden to prove her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
