Too soon to say how it'll play out. The BAC is high enough that even a good lawyer arguing instrument tolerance won't be able to get it low enough. So far the DA seems serious, with a felony charge and high$400k bail.
I don't know Illinois law, but in NY many DAs are prosecuting cases like this as manslaughter, and getting convictions with serious jail time.
