SYCAMORE – A DeKalb County judge ordered an Oregon man with four previous DUI convictions released from jail after police said he crashed his car and was visibly drunk Sunday morning.

Everett F. Bradley, 51, of the 1200 block of South Second Street, has been charged with aggravated driving under the influence, and if convicted could face three to seven years in prison.

Police said in court records that Bradley crashed his vehicle about 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the 900 block of South Fourth Street in DeKalb, after a witness saw him peel out of a parking lot.

Assistant State’s Attorney Maribeth Ennis said during a bond hearing Monday afternoon Bradley has four previous DUI convictions, and that in addition to his new charge in DeKalb County, he has pending DUI charges in Carroll and Lee counties.

She asked that bond be set at $50,000, but Judge Ron Matekaitis ordered that Bradley be released on his signature once he’s fitted with two bracelets: one an alcohol monitor, and the other for house arrest.

“SCRAM is more than appropriate under these circumstances,” Matekaitis said.

Bradley is due back in court at
9 a.m. April 6.
