States attorney alleged to a grand jury that I had 2 past convictions for dui, and subsequently charged me in Boone County as a third offense. I have repeatedly made the court, my public defender, and the state aware of this fact and am still charged as if this is my third offense. I have only 1 dui conviction which resulted in supervision (which I completed and no longer have a criminal conviction) from 2019. I also have a certified court purposes drivers abstract that also bears this information out. This malicious prosecutor is attempting to convict me for a third offense when I havent been tried or convicted of a second offense under the same statute. This prosecutor has already attempted to tender a felony probation plea deal to my public defender when this should only be charged as a class A misdemeanor, not a class 2 felony. This prosecutor is leveraging defendants by overcharging beyond the laws of the State of Illnois.
