Petersburg Man Sentenced for DUI
A Petersburg man will spend four years behind bars for his role in an accident that permanently disabled one of his passengers.
Richard Wolf III was convicted with aggravated driving under the influence of drugs.
The charges stem from a single-car accident on Gudgel Bridge Road in Menard County back in September 2010.
Authorities said testing showed Wolf has marijuana in his system at the time of the crash.
Attorneys said Wolf is undergoing substance abuse counseling and has been ordered to pay restitution to the victim.
