WAUKEGAN, Ill. (STMW) – The Gurnee woman accused of attacking a police officer with a sex toy was accepted into a chemical dependency treatment program Friday, according to Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Scott Turk.
Carolee Bildsten, 56, will be transported from Lake County Jail to Women’s Residential Services for treatment until her trial starts.
Bildsten is charged with aggravated DUI, assault and theft of labor. She was caught driving under the influence of alcohol Sept. 15, 2010, Turk said.
Less than two months later, Bildsten was accused of running out on a restaurant tab and then attacking a Gurnee police officer with what police termed a “clear, rigid, feminine pleasure device.”
Women’s Residential Services is a program for chemically dependent women offered through the Lake County Health Department.
If convicted, Bildsten faces up to one year in jail and fines up to $2,500.
