WILMINGTON, IL – Robert Martin Chamberlin, an Illinois resident hailing from Wilmington, finds himself in familiar legal territory once again. 

The Will County State’s Attorney’s Office of Jim Glasgow has filed a Class X felony charge of aggravated driving under the influence and an additional felony charge of aggravated driving while license revoked against the 75-year-old man. This latest arrest marks Chamberlin’s seventh DUI offense since 1983, according to court records.

On Saturday, Will County Sheriff’s deputies apprehended Chamberlin after he made the decision to operate a blue Dodge Caravan while under the influence of alcohol on Route 129 in Wilmington, as outlined in the recent criminal complaint. Chamberlin’s recurring pattern of DUI offenses spans nearly four decades, with previous incidents occurring in Will County, Grundy County, and even as recently as 2002.

Considering the severity of the charges, authorities have taken swift action against Chamberlin. A Class X felony charge signifies the gravity of the offense and carries potential severe consequences if Chamberlin is found guilty.

Chamberlin has since been released on bond and is awaiting a court date.
