PLAINFIELD — Police say a driver was clocked at nearly 70 mph over the speed limit on Wallin Drive last week.
At 10:44 a.m. officer Adam Kalar was checking speeds between 143rd and Lockport streets when he used his radar detector on a southbound BMW 3 Series and “came across something quite out of the routine.”
According to reports, the BMW was traveling at 113 mph in the 45 miles per hour zone.
Police were able to catch up with Ihusseen Odeh, 21, of Plainfield, who was charged with aggravated speeding, reckless driving and fleeing from police.
If found guilty of the misdemeanors, Odeh would not be eligible for court supervision, and could face a year in jail and $2,500 fine, along with having his driving privileges suspended, police said.
Man charged with sexual abuse
ROMEOVILLE — A 39-year-old man has been arrested for having sex with a 12-year-old relative, police said.
Assistant Chief Larry Vinson said police were called Sunday after the victim’s father learned Angel Jimenez had sexual encounters with the girl “a few times.”
Jimenez then admitted to police he had sexual relations with the girl, Vinson said. Jimenez, of 319 Hemlock Ave., was booked into the county jail on a charge of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
