A 50-year-old Huntley man was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to his fourth DUI, this one in Elgin in May 2013.

Timothy L. Bartlett, of the 13700 block of Wilshire Way, also was fined nearly $2,000 after pleading guilty to aggravated DUI, a felony, according to Kane County court records.

Judge Thomas Stanfa accepted the plea last week; the felony charge carried a prison term of anywhere between probation to three years in prison.

According to an Elgin police report, Bartlett was pulled over May 13 on the 200 block of Walnut Avenue after driving his white Jeep Grand Cherokee below the speed limit, weaving and striking a curb.

As Bartlett was giving an officer his ID card, he said, "I don't have a license, and now I'm going to prison for five years," according to a police report.

Bartlett was originally charged with aggravated DUI, but prosecutors later modified the charge.

Bartlett can have his sentenced halved for good behavior in prison.

A message left with his defense attorney, William Gibbs, was not returned on Monday.
