It depends entirely on the circumstances and facts of your case as well as your prior criminal history. I can tell you...

It can. It's up to the prosecutor. Percentage? That's impossible to say. It's not very high.
How to find DUI records
My 6 year old son lives mostly with my ex-wife. She has been on several evening dates recently, and I have heard through the grapevine that she is driving under the influence. Obviously, I fear for my son. How can I find out if she has any DUI's?

Is there any purpose to having legal representation for a DUI-1st time offender?
My daughter was pulled over because her headlights werent turned on & was told to take a breathalyzer test so she did. We now find out that she did not have to do that. She said they never told her it was an option. They just told her to breathe into it & she did. She went to jail and I had to pick her up. They wrote on the ticket that it was .181 and her pupils were dialated with open alcohol etc. My daughter says thats a lie-there was no alcohol in her car. The IL DMV sent a letter indicating her license will be suspended next month. Is there any use in fighting this? I am in no way condoning or taking away the seriousness of this offense but we keep receiving all these letters for DUI lawyers. Will she go jail? She does not have a record. Shes in college and works. Pls Advise

First of all, you are not suspended. You are revoked. That means that you will not automatically regain driving...
Can you win a petition to rescind statutory summary suspension if you did not refused to submit to and/or complete the tests?
I was just charged with a DUI. I was looking online at the forms and one of the forms is this Petition to Rescind Statutory Summary Suspension. One of the boxes says "The Defendant did not refuse to submit to and/or complete the required chemical test or tests, pursuant to 625 ILCS 5/11-501.1 (d) of the Illinois Vehicle Code, upon the request of the arresting officer". In this particular case, I did in fact do the breath test (I blew over .08) and I did do the exercises on the side of the road. Does that I mean I will win this Petition to Rescind? If not, what does it mean? Thanks
No, that ground does not apply to you. It applies to people who have been alleged to have refused or failed to...
