A Lisle woman faces felony charges following a traffic stop in Frankfort.

Stacy K. Niemiec, 52, of the 5500 block of Essex Road in Lisle, was charged with three counts of aggravated driving under the influence and one count of possession of a controlled substance, all felonies, at 1:50 a.m. on Jan. 5 on the 20500 block of La Grange Road.

She was also cited for driving with a suspended license, driving without insurance, improper lane usage and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence.

A Frankfort police officer was on patrol when he saw the car in front of him weaving from lane to lane.

When he stopped the car, Niemiec smelled of alcohol and couldn’t coherently answer questions about her destination, according to police reports. She was unable to provide her license and registration.

Niemiec failed a field sobriety test and was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. A background check revealed that her license was revoked for driving while intoxicated and that she had two previous DUI convictions.

Her court date is Jan. 28.

There was a high school girl driving home drunk after an after-bar, about 5 AM. She killed another student, a 16 year old boy who had just started his paper route at 5 AM. She was convicted, got some sort of a slap on the wrist, but she was seen several times in bars, showing off her ankle bracelet, and driving home drunk again. We are far too lenient on drunk drivers. We condone it, and even make jokes about it. I have heard responsible neighbors say that they don't remember driving home after a night drinking.

In our grade schools and high schools we have very strict guidelines that we refer to as zero tolerance. We abide by these rules, helps our childred develop disiplined behavior. We need to hold adults to these same set of rules. This woman clearly needs help and needs to stay off our roads. As a mother of teenage children just learning to drive, i hope she reads this and gets her ass straightened out! Grow up.
