Robert Vais has been charged with aggravated drunken driving for the incident which resulted in the death of Hector Avalos on December 6, 2013 as Hector rode his bike home from work at El Hefe in River North. Cook County prosecutors have alleged that Robert Vais's Blood Alcohol Level was .118 at the time of the fatal collision. This is an important court hearing where Judge Ford will give a recommended sentence for Defendant Robert Vais to his attorneys. The attorneys and Robert Vais do not have to accept the recommended sentence and can continue to trial. The Chicago bike community's presence will help remind the court system that this case and Hector's life are important to us.
