Judge Pleads Guilty, Sentenced For DUI

A local judge finds himself on the other side of the bench.

Winnebago County Judge Steven Nordquist pleaded guilty to driving under the influence Wednesday. A judge sentenced him to 12 months supervision and a $2,300 fine. After the arrest, Nordquist asked for a transfer from criminal to civil cases. As for his future, that will depend if the Judicial Inquiry Board would like to pursue further sanctions.
