What is the maximum sentence for driving while revoked in IL?
girlfriend called police after an argument and said i stole her vehicle, (she let me use it to go to work and did not report it until she knew i was on my way home and she is not the owner of the vehicle either, it is in her estranged husbands name and he lives in another state) but the police said the reason for pulling me over was because my license plate light was out (it was still 2 hours before night fall). I was arrested for driving while revoked but I was not read my rights. I have gone to court 4 times over this now, it keeps being held over. I now have a jury trial coming up ( I also have my physicians letter stating she does not believe my mental health will allow me to serve jail time but the court is refusing it). what are my options in this matter?
Your options are 1; prove you were fully licensed at the time of the arrest; or 2) prove you weren't driving at the...
If I was pulled over for DUI and the case was dropped do I have to pay the reinstatement fee for my driver's license?
The case was dropped because I was wrongfully pulled over. 5 years later, I went to DMV to renew my license and was told it was suspended and I would need to pay the reinstatement fee. I was never notified of the suspension.
Check with your attorney to see if the summary suspension was rescinded in addition to the DUI being dropped. They are...
City Ordinance Violation for Underage Drinking
I received a city ordinance violation for underage drinking in Champaign, IL. I have 21 days to pay the fine, but I already have the money order and will be mailing they payment tomorrow (19 days early). The documentation that I received is confusing. However, it says that if I pay the fee on time (before the 21 day period is up) that it will be considered a settlement and not a conviction. My question is, is this true? And what do I have to do to get this expunged from my record. Although I know it is not a criminal conviction and most likely won't affect me negatively in the future (please tell me if I am wrong here!), I want to get it removed from my record asap. Is there a waiting period and which expungement should I file? How will/will this affect my driver's license?
Before you pay any fine or make any admissions, you should consult in person with a Champaign County attorney who...
Am I eligible for a BAIID on a 2nd DUI arrest?

I was arrested last month for another DUI and recently received the notice from the state saying my license was to be suspended for one year. I know that I will have to go the 30days without driving but can I get a permit or something for the rest of the suspension?
If your confirmation of statutory summary suspension says that your are a first offender then you are eligible for a...
Will I not get hired because of a DUI?
I have already went through the interview process for a job in which I now have to wait to take the drug test and get the background check done (which will happen on the 20th). However in the time between signing the papers (9th) and getting the background check done I got arrested for a dui on the jan 13th which is before my background check (jan 20th). My court date isn't until the next month (February 13th) and my license has not yet been suspended (I got 46 days until). Will this arrest show up on this background check even though I have not yet been convicted?
Yes it will show up on a background check most likely. How can we answer a question about an unknown employer and...
