So-called “grim reaper” sentenced to 13-years for eighth DUI

Lake County prosecutors say a Round Lake Beach man  was like a “grim reaper” to every driver on the road.

Timothy Morrow, 43, was sentenced Wednesday to 13 years in prison for his eighth drunk driving conviction. He got his first DUI when he was 17, said Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Ben Dillon. Since then, Morrow has been cited nine more times with driving while intoxicated and twice with boating while under the influence. Four of those cases ended with not-guilty verdicts or with charges dropped or reduced.  Click here for more information.
