GURNEE, Ill., March 18 (UPI) -- An Illinois woman accused of striking a police officer with a sex toy pleaded guilty to drunken driving and theft charges.
Carolee Bildsten, 57, was sentenced to six months of periodic imprisonment and 30 months of probation after pleading guilty Monday in a Lake County court to felony aggravated driving under the influence and a misdemeanor count of theft, the Waukegan News Sun reported Thursday.
Prosecutors said Bildsten, who was pulled over and charged with driving under the influence Sept. 5, faced the theft charge due to a separate incident in which she left a Joe's Crab Shack restaurant without paying her bill. She was found by a Gurnee police officer and given a ride home, where she claimed to have money for the restaurant bill, and upon arriving attacked the officer with "a clear, rigid, feminine pleasure device," a police report said.
Bildsten had faced an assault charge stemming from the incident but the charge was dropped in exchange for her guilty plea.
