ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – A St. Charles man was charged with two counts of felony aggravated driving under the influence, according to Kane County Sheriff’s reports and court records.

Uriel Cobos-Romero, 25, of the 1600 block of Indiana Street, St. Charles, was charged April 22 with driving under the influence while not having a valid driver’s license and driving under the influence without insurance, court records show.

Cobos-Romero was also charged with driving under the influence, driving with a blood alcohol content greater than 0.08 percent, driving without insurance and driving without a valid license, records show.

The lack of a license and insurance creates the aggravating factor that elevates the charges to a felony, according to state statute. Each charge is a Class 4 felony punishable by one to three years in prison and fines up to $25,000.

According to sheriff’s reports, deputies were called to a house in the 39W800 block of Fabyan Parkway, Blackberry Township about 11:30 p.m. April 21 because of a suspicious vehicle in the driveway.

Deputies found Cobos-Romero in a blue 2006 Toyota Scion in the driveway, sitting in the driver’s seat with the motor running, reports stated.

Cobos-Romero appeared to be confused as to what was happening and where he was, reports stated.

Cobos-Romero said that he had been at a baptism party in Aurora and had consumed one beer, reports stated.

He was on his way to his girlfriend’s house, also in Aurora, but got lost, reports stated.

Cobos-Romero was released on a $30,000 personal recognizance bond and was ordered to refrain from drinking alcohol as a condition of his release, court records show.

Cobos-Romero’s next court date is May 23.
