A woman from Naperville’s far south side has been sentenced to jail and ordered to perform community service work, after being convicted for the fourth time of driving while drunk.

Manisha J. Arora, 37, lives on the 2400 block of Gleneagles Drive, in Naperville’s Brook Wood Trace neighborhood. She pleaded guilty in Will County Circuit Court in Joliet to a felony charge of aggravated DUI for the third or subsequent time in connection with the incident last fall.

Judge Carla J. Alessio-Policandriotes accepted Arora’s plea and sentenced her to three days in Will County Jail, according to court records. Arora spent three days in jail following her arrest, and thus has already completed that part of her sentence, records showed.

Alessio-Policandriotes on May 21 also ordered Arora to perform 480 hours of community service work. Records indicated the judge also placed her on two years of probation and ordered her to undergo treatment for alcohol abuse.

Naperville police arrested Arora at 6:38 p.m. Nov. 15, after she ran her car off the road near Hempstead Avenue and Gleneagles Drive, not far from her home.

Arora’s silver, 2007 Honda Accord left the roadway, striking and then coming to rest atop a large rock, police Cmdr. Lou Cammiso said last year. The police investigation revealed she was intoxicated and driving on a license that had been revoked in 2007, Cammiso said.

DuPage County court records revealed Arora was arrested in January and February 2002 for driving drunk in Naperville. She was ordered to attend the county’s drunken-driving school and placed on a year of conditional discharge to settle those cases, records showed.

Arora was arrested again in August 2006 while driving drunk in Oak Brook, records indicated. A judge in October 2007 found her guilty of that charge, ordering her to perform 240 hours of public service work and placing her on two years of conditional discharge, according to records.
