Miguel Hernandez, 39, is serving a 90-day sentence in DuPage County Jail, after having been convicted of a charge of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol in Naperville.

A man from east-central Naperville is serving a 90-day sentence in DuPage County Jail, after being convicted for the third time of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Miguel Hernandez, 39, pleaded guilty in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton to a felony charge of aggravated DUI/third violation, stemming from his arrest last fall on a street not far from his home.

Judge Blanche Hill Fawell accepted Hernandez’s plea and ordered him jailed on April 17, court records showed. She gave him two days of credit toward his sentence for time he spent in jail following his arrest, and also placed him on two years of probation, records indicated.

Companion charges that included a second count of aggravated DUI, driving with a revoked license, speeding 15-20 mph over the statutory limit and obstructing identification were dismissed in exchange for Hernandez’s plea, according to records.

Hernandez lives on the 1600 block of Ishnala Drive, in the Lake Caryonah area of Naperville. He was arrested about 2:25 a.m. Oct. 19, after Naperville police stopped him for speeding in his gold, 2003 GMC Yukon.

Cmdr. Lou Cammiso said a patrol officer using his radar unit clocked the Yukon traveling at 68 mph on 75th Street near Olympus Drive, where the speed limit is posted at 45 mph. The officer followed the vehicle, curbing it near Bailey Road and Washington Street.

The driver, later identified as Hernandez, “provided a false name and date of birth,” Cammiso said in October in an email. His license shortly thereafter “was found to be revoked for DUI,” Cammiso said.

Records showed Hernandez was arrested shortly after 4 a.m. on Feb. 14, 2000, for driving drunk on the 700 block of Royal St. George Drive on Naperville’s northeast side. Cammiso said Hernandez also was arrested in January 2008 for driving with a suspended or revoked license.

Details of Hernandez’s other DUI conviction could not be immediately learned.
