Driver charged with hitting state trooper pleaded guilty to DUI days earlier

Mount Prospect woman who authorities say drunkenly struck a state trooper on I-294 had pleaded guilty to an aggravated DUI charge just days before and had been sentenced to probation, according to Cook County court records.


Leslie W. Thurow, 59, was ordered held without bail for violating the terms of probation that were set Thursday, when she pleaded guilty in the previous incident. A ruling to hold her on $450,000 bail on charges that she struck the state trooper in the northbound lanes of the Tri-State Tollway near Berkeley Saturday afternoon was largely procedural.
