WOODSTOCK – An Antioch man was placed in handcuffs Friday morning after accepting a sentence stemming from 2009 driving under the influence charges.

Kenneth J. Marre, 47, of the 26600 block of Benes Road, Antioch, was taken to the McHenry County Jail after failing to abide by the terms of a 2009 DUI sentence.

Marre was found guilty of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol on Nov. 16, 2009, a McHenry County court order shows. It was Marre’s third DUI conviction, making it a felony offense.

He was sentenced to serve 24 months of probation and 180 days in the county jail and to pay the court $500. Marre was barred from consuming alcohol and ordered to get alcohol treatment, according to the sentencing order.

On Nov. 16, 2011, Assistant State’s Attorney Kirk Chrzanowski filed a petition to revoke Marre’s probation after he failed to pay his court fees, complete alcohol treatment and finish taking required courses. As a result, Marre’s probation sentence was modified.

A warrant was issued for his arrest after a missed court date in March 2012, but that warrant wasn’t served until October 2013.

Marre bonded out of the McHenry County Jail the same day.

However, he missed court again in February 2015 and was charged with driving on a revoked license that June, charging documents show.

Decisions on attorney’s motions were repeatedly continued to further dates from June 2015 to March 2017.

On March 12, Marre agreed to return to court Friday to finish his sentence at the McHenry County Jail, where he is scheduled to be released Dec. 30, jail booking records show.
