The mother went to work at 10pm and the child was already in bed for the night.
It may be child endangerment under 720 ILCS 5/12C-5. Contact a lawyer to be certain as there are relevant facts omitted...
I was arrested for my second DUI in 2001. The officer charged me with Aggrevated Battery on a Police Officer but the DA dropped the charge. This keeps showing up when I apply for jobs and would like to end that humiliation.
More than likely a second "conviction" in this case is not sealable. Perhaps check with a local Criminal Defense...
I have had the BAIID for about a month. On one occasion I blew a .049 then an hour later blew a .031 then another hour later blew a .011. On another occasion I blew a .035, then a half hour later blew a .029, then waited a couple hours and blew 0.00. Also, on two other separate occasions I blew .031, but then did not try to blow again. Finally, on a couple of occasions I blew under .025 and started the vehicle. According how the violation rules read, none of these is a violation right? They were all under .05 and I have not had 10 or more failed attempts in a month. Will I receive a letter from the SOS? Will they consider any of these as violations, or will I simply get a letter asking for an explanation. Or will I not receive a letter?

I was convicted of a 3rd DUI in Boulder Co in April of 2005. I did an intensive rehab program and moved to Illinois when completed. I went through a complete assessment and formal re-instatement hearing and was granted a JDP in September 2011. I went in to be fully re-instated in 2012 and was informed by mail that due to 2 DWAI's in Colorado that I was revoked for lifetime. I need help, it has been since 2005 that I drank alcohol and desperately need my license back as I have a growing family and profession that requires it. I am willing to move to a different state, but don't know if that will help... I was told by legal council that I could travel to Colorado and seek representation for post conviction relief in each county, but it has been over 20 years and I don't know!?
As you've already hinted at, you will most likely need an attorney to help you with this. Most if not all states will...

Very unlikely. They don't attribute that degree of accuracy to the BAIID.

You can receive one of the request for explanation letters for lots of reasons including blowing 0.05 or having "a...
