What are the consequences of a third underage consumption charge?
I recently received my third charge for underage consumption. I have just turned twenty years old and i received my first one when i was 16 and received my second charge about a month and a half ago. For the first charge they fined me 150$ and took my license for three months. For my second charge, they fined me 300$ and i am still waiting on my letter from the secretary of state on weather or not i lose my license. What are the minimum and maximum fines as and penalties i could be looking at for my third consumption charge?

I need a DUI lawyer that can handle an appeal.
I was in a car accident 4/17/15. I was taken to the ER and examined. I was given Tylenol extra strength and Ultram. The hospital didn't write down I was given medication. I had to leave blood and urine samples. 8 months later, I receive a letter in the mail saying my license will be suspended for 6 months because of what was found in the blood and urine samples. I contested the suspension and in court found the only thing found in testing was Acetaminophen in my urine. I told them that acetaminophen was Tylenol and not a controlled substance. They didn't believe acetaminophen was Tylenol and upheld the suspension. Every person I have spoken to says this is wrong. 3 things. First the samples were taken after I was released from the ER and not before. Second, according to one attorney, a illicit drug test would not have detected acetaminophen but a medical test would have so I was given the wrong test. Third, acetaminophen is over the counter medication and is not controlled. The suspension will be up next week but I don't want a false DUI on my record and I want to find out who said acetaminophen was a controlled substance and take legal action against them.
You do not need an appellate attorney, You need a good DUI defense counsel who also handles hearings. Apparently you...
Does Dui court supervision affect my insurance?
I was arrested for DUI in January 2014 in Illinois. It wasn't in my car nor was I on my parents insurance yet. Received court supervision February 2014. Completed court supervision successfully February 2015. I am getting ready to buy my first car soon and getting my own insurance. Will the court supervision affect the price?
Less the Court supervision than having had a dui, and then age and gender and lack of insurance history. In other...
Do out of state DUIs carry over?
So, my girlfriend was arrested yesterday afternoon for driving while under the influence in Rockford, IL. This is her 3rd DUI, but it is her first in the state of Illinois. She had gotten 2 DUIs almost back to back in Michigan about 2 years ago, but was able to walk away after 10 days in jail and without probation. To date, she owes the state about $6,000, and technically has a warrant out for her arrest in Michigan due to unpaid fines. I'm curious if the DUIs will carry over, because right now her bond is set at $300, and that seems awfully low for someone with her DUI history. Isn't a 3rd DUI supposed to be a felony, anyway? She had gotten into an argument with someone and fallen asleep in the car (which just so happened to be in the middle of a parking lot). Someone noticed her passed out in the car and called the police, who then knocked on her window and proceeded to question her. They got her with 5 charges: DUI ALCOHOL/INTOX COMPOUND/DRUG; POSSESS DRUG PARAPHERNALIA; POSSESS CANNABIS 2.5-10 GRAMS; DRVNG UNDR INFLU/BAC 0.08; TRANSP/CARRY ALC LIQ/DRIVER. I know she had a bunch of opened containers and cans in the car. What is likely to happen if she is not bonded out?
Convictions from other states carry over to other states. You know she needs to get a dui attorney, help her do that....
What can I do about court fines for a DUI?
Hello, in 2014 I received a DUI in Cook County, Illinois. I was sentenced to 2 years probation, 90 hours of Alcohol abuse treatment, 200 hours of community service, Impact panel session, revoked license, probation fees, required to pay re-instatement fees for my drivers license, and lastly $2,914.00 in Court fines, I have completed everything, except, paying my reinstatement fees for my Drivers license which I believe is $550.00, and the $2,914.00 in court fines. Probation fees, treatment, and community service have been taken care of, but with me being disabled and on a fixed income, of 871.00 a month has made it nearly impossible for me to save the money for the court fines. The most difficult part is the fact that I live 4 hours away in western Illinois away from Chicago. My probation will becoming to an end in December of this year 2016. I was told that I am to pay my fines in full at my last hearing in Cook County, less the reinstatement fees which will be sent to Springfield. I do not know what to do about the fines. I would like to know if there is some leniency when it comes to fines? Thank you for your time.
