Daniel munoz, a 56-year-old man, told a judge he drove drunk despite a dozen convictions about the time his father died and his mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
“I had a lot of stuff on my mind, and I started drinking too much,” Daniel Munoz said Tuesday.
McHenry County Judge Joseph Condon told Munoz that alcoholics always would face triggers or stresses that they might use to justify drinking.
Condon sentenced Munoz to 10 years in prison for what a prosecutor said were his 13th and 14th drunken-driving convictions.
Munoz’ blood-alcohol level was 0.385 percent in the most recent incident.

This drunk driver needs some real help! Perhaps 10 sober years will rehabilitate the man.
