A Plainfield man has been sentenced to 12 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, after he was found guilty, earlier this year, for driving under the influence of alcohol in an accident that killed a pregnant Shorewood woman in 2017 in Kendall County, near Minooka.
Kendall County Court records show that on Wednesday, Judge Robert Pilmer sentenced 25 year-old Jacob Kaminski of Trillium Ln. to four years for Reckless Homicide of an Unborn Child and eight years for Aggravated Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol Resulting in the Death of Another.
The sentence will be served concurrently.
Court records indicate three years of mandatory supervised release will be required at the conclusion of the sentence. Kaminski will be required to serve 85 percent of the sentence, according to the statute.
As WSPY previously reported, Kaminski was charged in July of 2017 with two counts of Aggravated DUI involving a death and one count of Reckless Homicide of an Unborn Child. He was also issued several traffic and cannabis citations.
Kaminski, then of Marseilles, was involved in a three-vehicle accident on June 30th, 2017 that killed 27 year-old Alexis Danley of Shorewood and the unborn child. The Kendall County Sheriff's Office had reported that, a one-year-old child was securely fastened in Danley's vehicle. They were hospitalized but later released to family.
The accident occurred at the intersection of Ridge Rd. and Khater Drive near Minooka. Kaminski was driving a truck southbound on Ridge Road when he struck the northbound vehicle driven by Danley.
The sheriff's office said that Kaminski's truck then spun around and struck another vehicle driven by an Oswego woman.
Kaminski had been transported to St. Joseph's Hospital with non-life threatening injuries and was taken into custody after he was discharged from the hospital in July of 2017.
Multiple civil suits were also filed against Kaminski, some still pending. In his criminal case, Kaminski was ordered to pay $12,401 in restitution and additional court costs.
