How can I sway the State's Attorney to agree to vacate my DUI charge?
I've recieved a DUI last year and have been placed on supervision for 24 months. Due to my dilligence of completion of everything required of me, my lawyer was able to get an early termination of my supervision. My issue is that I have a CDL and because of a DUI charge, it has been disqualified. I motioned up the case in hopes of getting this charge amended. I know this is a very difficult thing to do, but I need my CDL for my job. Would it be a good idea to have my mother to also speak on my behalf?
I understand the hardships you face regarding your CDL. You are not alone. I have seen many people facing similar...
Will probation be given or denied?
He has been in custody for 4 months to be exact. He was picked up on a warrant for fta in court three years ago for an agg. DUI. He didnt show up because he was afraid and also because his brother passed away in the same month or so. And the attorney hired at the time was of no help at all. We have proof of the brothers death. Would that help in any case? He was offered a year in prison, three years ago. Can he get probation with the time spent in custody already? Thank you.

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
Very simply put, your daughter needs an attorney. There are many great DY defense attorneys in the greater metro area....
Question regarding 2nd letter of explanation request from SOS regarding BAIID failure (refusal of rolling retest)
I have had an RDP and BAIID for over 2 years now with 0 failed blows or other issues. About 4 months ago I received a letter from the SOS asking for explanation about a rolling retest refusal. I was able to determine it was caused by the technician who calibrated the device based on the date/time and I had the signed calibration report with the date and nearby times as evidence. Now 4 months later, the same thing has happened again. Again, I have the calibration report that matches the date/time of the failure but I am concerned that the SOS will not accept my explanation and that this reflects poorly on me despite it being completely out of my control. Also of note is there are multiple successful blows both before and after the alleged refusal.
Ask to have your machine replaced. It sound faulty. Also, keep your records.
