What are typical outcomes of a first time boating OUI in Illinois?
No previous issues or convictions (only 2 speeding tickets in my adult life). BAC .099 under the Boat registration and safety act chapter 625/45 section 5-16 ( A ) ( 1) ( b). Remained cooperative during entire process. Conservation police stated my drivers license is not in jeopardy. Is this true? What are typical fines and penalties in my situation?
Sort of semi-correct. Go see Tom Bruno in Cham-bana. Stakes could be high.
Can you receive a MDDP in Illinios for a third DUI conviction?
My last conviction was over 10 years ago and the Secretary of State sent me a letter approving me for a MDDP because I'm considered a first offender. I have not been convicted of my third DUI yet, but once convicted will they cancel my MDDP?
If your last DUI was more than five years ago, yes.
I got arrested for a third DUI in Woodford County IL. I had a first conviction in in '97 and a second in '01.
I blew a .2 for this third offense so I know there is a mandatory 90 days. Is there any way I can get out of a conviction and if convicted is there mandatory jail time since it would be a Class 2 felony? Also, could I possibly receive probation, work release, or house arrest?
Difficult to say if you can "get out of it". Some jurisdictions will agree to a misdemeanor and suspended sentence....

My insurance says DUI, but my ticket says otherwise, what can be done?
I got a ticket in Illinois last year, age 22, 200% sober, I had one drink with one shot worth of alcohol then waited 2 hrs to drive home, no way I could reach the bottle (which had barely a swig in it, it was basically an empty bottle) on the back seat of my SUV. I passed a field sobriety test, the officer refused a BAC test when I offered (I was just too tired from work to walk around like a dumb@$$), she gave me a ticket for illegal transportation. They apparently think everyone is a drunk around here, because this was the 3rd time in about 2 years I had a field sobriety test and passed because well, I drink once a blue moon, and not while I am driving.. My question is because I recently saw this on my policy when I renewed this year and it says I got a DUI, which is not what it says on my ticket. What can I do about this? Can I have it removed? because apparently I've been paying for a DUI violation for a year, and I didn't notice because it just comes out of my account every month, with me assuming it's the same price each time. Thank you so much for answering! Happy Holidays
Start by getting your driving abstract from the SOS and check the court file to find out what was entered.
DUI in Indiana but licensed in Illinois?
My boyfriend got pulled over and got a DUI. He's going to college in Indiana but has an Illinois license. He didn't tell me what his BAC was when he got pulled over but he just got a ticket, not arrested. He still has his license or at least a temporary one since he's still able to drive. He has court in February. What can we expect as far as charges and consequences? Also how will Illinois handle it with his record after Indiana deals with him? Thank you!
Illinois will revoke his drivers license upon receiving notice of a conviction in Indiana, so he should retain the best...
