Will County authorities say a man involved in a 2011 traffic crash that killed two Rolling Meadows women has pleaded guilty to aggravated driving while under the influence of alcohol.
In a news release, Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow says 27-year-old Joseph E. Slattery of Mokena pleaded guilty Monday and faces up to 28 years in prison when he is sentenced on July 26.
Slattery was driving near Peotone on Aug, 28, 2011 when he veered into oncoming traffic and slammed head-on into a car driven by 72-year-old Margaret Simons of Rolling Meadows.
Simons and her 92-year-old mother, Suzanne Thomson, also of Rolling Meadows, were killed.
Prosecutors contended that Slattery's blood-alcohol level was .092 shortly after the accident, and a blood test for opiates was positive.
