If I got a DUI in Illinois but am a Wisconsin resident, can I still drive in Wisconsin?
I'm supposed to have my license suspended for 6 months for a DUI I got in IL as of 6/16/16 which was 3 days ago. I contacted the WI DMV and they said my license is still valid until IL reports the conviction to WI. But I thought Wisconsin wasn't part of the driving compact? So can I just pay to get my driving privileges in IL reinstated after the 6 months and just not drive in IL until then? Will I need to follow any process in WI to keep driving?
I'm in the process of applying for the BAIID that IL requires but I don't want to start payments until I know I absolutely need it.
I'm going to change your practice area from Government to DUI/DWI in the hopes you get more responses from DWI...
Should we hire a second lawyer? Or at least a consult
My boyfriend was on probation for his 4th Dui and had would have been done in May. However he was arrested for his 5th on December 5th. He has already sat a year prior to 2 years probation.

Does "falsifying display of plates" count as a legal stance of suspicion especially if the same officer has cited one before?
I owned a vehicle, and the title was a lost title, so I was unable to register it, because of this, I simply used my old plates from a previous vehicle I owned. I was cited multiple time for false display of plates by the same officer, I then proceeded to try and find the title through the auction that sold the vehicle. Weeks later I was pulled over for the display of plates again, forced to wait for a k9 unit, and slapped with an OWI/DUI 2nd. Would a false display of plates give an officer reasonable cause for suspicion, and would a lawyer be able to reopen this case based on the recent ruling of the Supreme Court that forcing one to wait for a k9 unit is a violation of the 4th amendment?
There was recent Supreme Court case law on this question, I believe. You would realistically need an attorney to help...
