(Press Release: DuPage County's State's Attorney's Office) DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin and Lombard Chief of Police Roy Newton announced today that bond has been set for a Lombard man accused of his seventh DUI offense.
Steven Tresnak, 55 (d.o.b. 1/25/1963) of 320 S. Westmore Road, appeared at a bond hearing this morning where Judge Jeffrey MacKay set bond at $200,000 with 10% to Apply.
Tresnak has been charged with one count of Aggravated DUI, a Class X Felony, punishable by a sentence of between six to thirty years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, and one count of Driving While License Revoked, a Class 4 Felony.
On October 9, 2018, at approximately 6:48 p.m., Lombard police officers responded to a crash near Westmore-Meyers Road and St. Charles Road. Upon their arrival, officers allegedly found Tresnak in the passenger seat of his vehicle located at a nearby Burger King. An investigation into the crash revealed that Tresnak allegedly struck two vehicles and then continued driving to the Burger King. The investigation also revealed that once at the Burger King, Tresnak and a passenger in his vehicle switched seats. Tresnak was taken into custody at this time. His BAC was allegedly .20.
“Time and time again, Mr. Tresnak thumbed his nose at the law,” commented Berlin. “He continued to get behind the wheel not only after his first or second DUI, but after his fifth and sixth. Now Mr. Tresnak finds himself accused of DUI for the seventh time. Thankfully, no one was injured as a result of Mr. Tresnak’s alleged irresponsible, reckless behavior. I would like to thank the Lombard Police Department for their work in identifying Mr. Tresnak as the alleged driver in this case. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorney Matthew Dambach for his diligence in charging Mr. Tresnak with the appropriate felonies.”“I commend the officers in this case for their fine work which may ultimately lead to removing this career drunk driver from our roads for a very long time,” Newton said. “I would also like to thank the State’s Attorney’s Office for their work in preparing a strong case against this defendant.”Tresnak’s next court appearance is scheduled for November 11, 2018, for arraignment in front of Judge Brian Telander.Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant's guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government's burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
