Prison Time for Man Who Fled Country After Fatal 1995 Lake Forest Crash

(Waukegan, IL) A man who fled the country after a fatal Lake County crash several years ago, is on his way to prison. Marek Josko was convicted of reckless homicide earlier this year, in connection with a 1995 crash along route 41 in Lake Forest that killed Dennis Bourassa of Waukegan. Josko fled to Poland after the crash, but he was eventually found and returned to the US in June of 2020. During a sentencing hearing Wednesday, the now 68-year-old was hit with 12-years in prison.
