Illinois man guilty of fifth DWI
MONROE - An Illinois man was charged and found guilty Wednesday of a fifth-offense count of driving with a prohibited alcohol content. Benjamin Houghton, 35, Pearl City, had a third-offense drunk driving charge amended to a fifth-offense charge Wednesday after being found guilty of two other drunk-driving charges from the same time period in Rock County. Houghton's Green County charge stems from an incident on Nov. 24, 2014, when he was found walking aimlessly from the scene of a car in a ditch on County OK, Town of Decatur.
