Received a letter from the IL Sec. of State regarding my MDDP and I have to give an explanation for blowing a .054? What to say?
I was arrested for DUI in October 2013. I have had two court dates and have my third coming up in May. I have a lawyer, he is currently subpoenaing evidence to try and help my case. I have not been sentenced yet but hope for Court Supervision or possibly getting reduced to Reckless Driving. Anyway, I have had the BAIID device since March 1. I received a violation notice from the SOS stating that I blew a .054 and they want an explanation. It occured on 3/27 at 11:26am. I had the morning off from work, misjudged the time and realized I was going to be late for my afternoon shift. I swigged some Listerine (BIG MISTAKE!!!) , jumped in the car and got a fail on my BAIID. I panicked and immediately left my car and took an Uber car service to work instead. Will I have my suspension extended?

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!
