Edgar Co., IL. (ECWd) –

Last November (2019) we reported (here, here, and here) on the DUI Stacey Adams was charged with in connection to the accident involving Edgar County Sheriff’s Deputy Rhoads, where Adams turned her vehicle into the path of the Deputy while he was responding to a call. Her BrAC was 0.23 at 2 p.m. that day.

She pled Guilty and was sentenced to Alcohol Treatment and 75 hours of counseling, $750 Fine, and 18 months Conditional Discharge – her conditional discharge on the 2019 DUI does not expire until May of 2021.

Monday, November 19, 2020, Adams was once against arrested and charged with DUI (here). The arresting Officer was Clayton Johnson.

We will provide an update when we receive the new mugshot and charge sheet for this alleged DUI.

***We would also like to note that these are merely charges, and a person is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

    I’m wondering if she actually attended the counseling? Also, in cases like this the person has to do a bunch of community service hours? If it’s just probation, it wasn’t much anyway. I don’t know what her sobrity (sp) test showed so don’t know if she’s guilty or innocent, but if the person was driving DUI they should get some common sense.

    She is not on some board or a committee member, but a repeat offender who had only a $100 bond; really totaled cars?

      Yes total cars she turned into the path of a squad car that was probably going 35-40 45 mph cars built this day can’t withhold or withstand a collision not like the older cars that was built out of steel and metal were cars today are built out of fiberglass and plastic big difference know your facts before you open your mouth

    Probably a nice lady and definitely married to a nice guy but nice ladies kill people every day by driving drunk or under the influence. Come down hard on her. Put the pressure on the state’s attorney’s office. It’s 2020 and if people haven’t got the message by now, it’s time they get the hammer, instead.

    Nice ladies kill people every day by driving drunk. I didn’t read in the article that she killed anyone. Its the mindset conveyed in that message that is causing the overblown reaction to Covid 19.

    Ha, that would be hilarious if not such a blatantly callous and self-serving statement, “I didn’t read in the article that she killed anyone. It’s the mindset conveyed in that message that is causing the overblown reaction to Covid 19.” I won’t even get into the Covid discussion. Not necessary. DUI is a bigger issue than just the individual who is the topic of this story. By the poster’s sad and pathetic logic, it appears as though he or she believes as long as someone isn’t killed by a drunk driver, driving drunk is nothing to get excited about. Just another overblown reaction to a victimless crime, eh? Reminds me of the old saying, “Everything was going smoothly until________” Belly up to the bar and have another, friend. Perhaps you can make it home one more time without killing yourself, a family member, or someone else. It’s a gamble that you will someday lose, and others, beginning with your family, will suffer needlessly for your selfish self-indulgence.

    Is this part of the tyrannical governor’s plan to infringe upon our rights? I thought this was America! So what if my actions may or may not kill people? Isn’t it my right to do as I please? Don’t let them restrict our travel!

    If it would have been a African American or .minority PERIOD, charges would be very different.
