CHICAGO (CBS) -- The family of an Oak Lawn man who was killed by a suspected drunken driver is angry that she got off with nothing but traffic fines.
Murod Kurdi, 28, was struck by a car outside his home back in June.
In court Tuesday, driver Leanne Cusack was found guilty of failure to reduce speed. She was ordered to pay a fine of $750, and mandatory court assessments of $254 – a total of $1,004.
Cusack must also complete 30 hours of community service, eight hours of traffic safety school, and a victim impact panel.
Kurdi's family said Oak Lawn police failed to arrest Cusack when she refused field sobriety tests – despite writing in their own reports that she smelled of alcohol and admitted to drinking.
According to police reports, one of the officers smelled a slight odor of alcohol, and Cusack admitted to "drinking a beer and a shot of tequila prior to the crash."
She also refused a breathalyzer and chemical testing. As a result, Cusack's driver's license was suspended.
Murod's family is calling on the Cook County State's Attorney's office to review possible criminal charges.
