ADEL – As part of his sentence for an alcohol-related event in Cook County, Jonathan Daniel Wilcox was ordered, among other things, to attend Mothers Against Drunk Drivers meetings.  He did, only he did so while intoxicated.

The Cook County Probate Court reports that last Saturday, November 15, Jonathan Daniel Wilcox of Valdosta attended a court ordered Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Victim Impact Class under the influence.  According to the Georgia State Patrol, Wilcox drove to the MADD class while intoxicated and was arrested and booked into the Tift County Jail and charged with Driving Under the Influence.

Wilcox was arrested and charged in late September and plaed guilty to charges in Cook County and was sentenced to pay fines, perform community service, and attend a MADD class where mothers who have lost children to drunk drivers give testimonials on how it affected their lives.

Cook County Judge Chase Daughtrey issued a warrant for Wilcox’s arrest due to him violating his probation by receiving new criminal charges. He was taken into custody by the Cook County Sheriff’s Office.

“”It is our mission that when defendants appear in our court that we see that justice is served and defendants are held accountable for their actions. I have found the MADD Impact Panels to have a profound impact on defendants who attend as a term of probation. Mr. Wilcox’s actions, however, show a blatant disregard for the tragedy that participants of the Impact Panels have endured, and his actions will not go unpunished.” said Cook County Solicitor Matthew Bennett
