A Naperville woman who was drunk last winter when she drove to the aid of her inebriated motorist son was sentenced Tuesday in that case.
Natalia P. Nosenko was placed on court supervision in the drunken-driving matter and sentenced to two days in DuPage County Jail in Wheaton for a similar, second offense, which occurred two months later.
Nosenko, 42, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol in the first case and charges of reckless driving and speeding in a school zone in the second, according to records on file in DuPage County Circuit Court.
Associate Judge James J. Konetski accepted both pleas, sentencing Nosenko to jail and 18 months of conditional discharge on the reckless driving charge, as well as 18 months of court supervision for the DUI.
Court records indicated Nosenko spent two days in jail following her arrest in the reckless driving case. With day-for-day credit for good behavior, she has already completed that term and been released.
A total of four other charges, which included driving without insurance and driving on the wrong side of a roadway, were dismissed in exchange for Nosenko’s pleas, records showed.
Nosenko, who also spells her first name Natalya, was arrested March 6, along with her son, Dimitriy V. Nosenko. They live on the 1300 block of Monmouth Avenue in Naperville’s University Heights neighborhood.
A drunken Dimitriy Nosenko early that morning called his mother for help, after his gray, 2011 Toyota Corolla became mired in a snowbank on the 900 block of Mill Race Lane, not far from their home.
Naperville police Sgt. Bill Davis said an officer was sent to that address, where Dimitriy Nosenko “was found to be under the influence and was arrested.”
His mother was home “when she got a call from Dimitriy, to come and assist him getting his vehicle unstuck,” Davis said in March. She then drove her gray, 2012 Honda van “out to the scene to assist, (and) was also found to be DUI” and arrested, he said.
Natalia Nosenko was arrested again about 8:28 a.m. May 6 while driving near Cassin Road and Naper Boulevard in Naperville. She was initially charged with drunken driving in that matter.
Dimitriy Nosenko, 20, pleaded guilty June 17 to a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol. Konetski that day ordered him to perform 50 hours of community service work, placed him on two years of court supervision and ordered him to undergo alcohol abuse counseling and attend the county’s DUI school.Tags: crime, DUI
