Will I get in trouble for the question I asked the community service coordinator?
I have 300 hours of community service, I am a full time mother, I work 2 jobs, and also have already completed 75 hours of dui treatment. My husband passed away and I had a antidepressant I carry and had been charged for it more than once. I travel for work. Well they slammed the book on me, gave me so much it consumes my life.. today I had asked the coordinator if I was able to try and pay hours and work hours and she completely freaked out. Told me it's a felony, she scared me by the way she acted toward my question and I hung my volunteer shirt and left. All the managers were very rude anyways and I guess I should have asked my actual officer or the court first. She took it like I was trying to bribe her obviously by saying it's a felony. I told her she is taking me way wrong and I said I just wanted to know if that's been done in the past or was allowed. She continued to treat it like I asked her the worst question in the world. Am I going to get in trouble for this??? The way she treated me was aweful, I know I need them, they don't need me. I'm so scared how she's going to make this sound. It's a holiday weekend and I can't get ahold of my community service officer.

Arrested for DUI, unfortunately I have already done supervision in 2004. So this is a second arrest, odds of a plea down?
I was pulled over for speeding, the officer asked if I knew why, I said "no" . He states I was speeding and asks for my license and registration . After giving my license and registration, he asked if I had anything to drink, I said "a little", he then directed me to step out and participate in field sobriety tests. At that point I stated without speaking or seeing my lawyer I would not participate in any FSTs, I had to reiterate this a few times ( I'm guessing to hear my slurred speech) and eventually asked me to step outside of my car and place my hands on the car, I was then arrested. At booking I remained silent and refused the breathalyzer

Will I be able to reapply for a FOID?
About a year ago I was charged with DUI and possession of marijuana paraphernalia. The paraphernalia charge was dropped, but I tested positive for THC and so my FOID was revoked. I received court supervision which will be complete July 20th. Kept my nose clean this whole time. Can I reapply after this time? What would I need to do to get my FOID back?

Is it possible to have a DUI expunged from criminal record, or are they permanent?
I was very young - 23 I think. I haven't had s DUI since. I would like to have it expunged. Is that possible, or are DUIs ineligible?
The short answer is no, you cannot expunge, nor seal a DUI disposition, even if you received supervision.

Dui and court supervision
Kane county, IL. Yes, I was a complete idiot by getting behind the wheel and accept complete responsibility... Im a first year law student. First offense ever for drinking and driving (no injury/no damage to property). 2 old speeding tickets. No other run ins with traffic violations. I don't think I'm a bad person with having one irresponsible mistake like this. What are my chances of receiving court supervision that could possibly remove a conviction on good behavior after a court imposed time along with conditions. I do understand that the court will have the ultimate discretion after I plead guilty. I have a lawyer I'm meeting within a few days and the incident occurred about 4 days ago.
It's Kane county. I would not even think of handing this as a DIY project! Spend the money on a good traffic and DUI...
