Will County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Cicero man who now faces charges of driving under the influence and endangering children, according to court records.
About 10 p.m. Friday, Carlos R. Gomez, 47, of the 2700 block of South 59th Avenue, was arrested and taken to the Will County jail on charges of aggravated DUI with no valid driver’s license, aggravated DUI with no valid insurance and endangering children, according to court records.
Gomez also faces a misdemeanor DUI charge and two other charges of operating an uninsured motor vehicle and driving on a suspended license.
A message to sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer inquiring on Gomez’s arrest was not returned Wednesday.
A Will County judge set Gomez’s bond at $20,000. He posted 10% of the bond and was released about 9:40 p.m. Saturday.
As part of Gomez’s bond condition, the judge ordered him to have no contact with the two minors involved in the case, according to court records.
Gomez pleaded not guilty to all the charges Tuesday.
The aggravated DUI charges are the most serious. They are Class 4 felonies, punishable by one to three years in prison if he is convicted.
The jail log said one of Gomez’s aliases is “Goofy.”
