Orland Park 'Ghost Rider' Trial Date Set

Charged with several felony counts of fleeing and eluding police, Justin Jachiemiec, 22, was recently arrested after his missed a court date and is being held without bail, officials said Tuesday, Oct. 30.


The case against the Orland Park man who called himself the " Orland Ghost Rider," for weaving in and out of traffic on his motorcyle to evade police and shooting videos of the encounters, will head to trial in November.

Justin Jachimiec, 22, has been charged with several felony charges related to the incidents and has pleaded not guilty. Police caught up with him and arrested him last November; he has also been indicted on felony charges in the past related to resisting arrest and driving a stolen vehicle.

Jachimiec remains in custody on no bail after he missed his Oct. 4 court date and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Court records show he was taken into custody on Oct. 23. 

Cook County State's Attorney's Office spokesman Andy Conklin told Patch Tuesday that Orland Park police looked for Jachimiec when he missed his last court appearance.

"[Orland police] had two phone conversations with him where he was supposed to come in and turn himself in," Conklin said during a phone interview.

Jachimiec ultimately appeared at the court house with his lawyer and was placed in custody.

A trial date has been set for Nov. 27 in Judge Carmen K. Aguilar's courtroom in Bridgeview.

So he didn't bother showing up for court ? That's classic. Nothing like enjoying the holidays in jail. Can't wait to hear the excuses from his fan club in here again.

The look on his face in his mug shot seems like he thinks this is joke. He obviously has gotten out of everything he's ever done before and feels this case is no different. At this point, his parents are to blame. If I had a 22 year old pulling these stunts time and time again, he'd find himself out on the street.

This is so insanley pathetic and sad. He won't be smiling when he's in jail and meets his cell mates.

Look this idiot thinks its all a big joke. Driving down those residential streets he could have killed a little kid. This moron should do some serious time in jail, not probation or some other slap on the wrist. I agree i have read he has had numerous cases dismissed. Luckily this jack... posted the evidence against himself.

Just a spoiled rich kid who was able to get away with everything when he was little...I feel bad for his parents. Raising him must be a nightmare.

It was most likely a lack of parenting that got him this way.
