Stroger executive gets 100-day sentence for DUI, fatality of bicyclist

A Stroger Hospital executive who was driving home drunk from an office Christmas party in 2013 was sentenced to 100 days in prison Tuesday for striking and killing an aspiring chef who was biking home from work.

During an emotional hearing, Robert Vais, the hospital’s director of cost reimbursement, tearfully apologized for the death of Hector Avalos, 28, who had served five years in the Marines.

“I am so sorry,” he said as members of Avalos’ family began to weep. “I pray every day for Hector. I don’t even know what I can say.”
