ST. CHARLES, Ill. (AP) -- An Aurora man faces from six to 28 years in prison after pleading guilty to drunken driving charges stemming from a 2007 car crash that killed two Batavia men.
In Kane County Court on Friday, 26-year-old Thomas Ofenloch pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol and one count of misdemeanor driving under the influence.
Ofenloch is now in the Kane County jail pending his April 26 sentencing.
Authorities say Ofenloch was driving Aug. 4, 2007 when he crashed into a tree near Sugar Grove, killing passengers Joshua Sutton and Andrew Berger, both 21.
An investigation revealed that Ofenloch's blood-alcohol concentration was above the legal limit and he also had traces of marijuana in his system.
