WAUKEGAN, Ill. (AP)  A man who fled to Poland in 1995 has been convicted of reckless homicide in a drunken driving crash in Lake County. Marek Josko was sent back to the U.S. in June of 2020. The 67-year-old Josko was convicted of reckless homicide after a four-day trial. He was accused of being drunk while speeding and driving the wrong way on Route 41 near Lake Forest, causing a crash that killed Dennis Bourassa of Waukegan. Josko was actually arrested in Poland in 2018, but the extradition process lasted two years. He now faces up to 14 years in prison…his next court date is October 12.
