I was charged with a DUI last night.
I was involved in an accident. It was the other person's fault. But I did received a ticket for "not slowing down to avoid accident" Which makes no sense. I do not think the test results matter because I drank liquor at the Scene AFTER the crash. I just waited in the car actually and drank wine port.The police did arrive and it said on the ticket that they noted I had wine in my hands when they arrived. I have a jeep and the damage didn't really look to bad, (her car looked totaled) . I didn't know how to handle the situation. I was also drinking before I got into the jeep. But I believe it was the wine I drank at the scene that put me over the limit.
Report this to your auto carrier and hire a criminal attorney. Do not post more admissions online.
How should I go about getting an Illinois license when I have a prior DUI in Indiana?
I grew up and got my license in Indiana. One month before moving to Chicago, I got a DUI (in Indiana). I was given permission to serve probation and attend substance abuse counseling in Illinois, but my license was suspended for 3 months. I sold my car and haven't driven since. Now its been a little over 2 years and I'd like to at least be able to drive if I wanted/needed to, but I'm concerned with the non-standard nature of my situation ---- My initial 3 month suspension has obviously passed, but my license in Indiana is still suspended, pending submission of an SR22 and payment of reinstatement fee. I'm now an Illinois resident, so having an Illinois license would be preferred. Indiana BMV told me if I did not wish to reinstate my Indiana license (to get an Illinois license instead), I would just have to provide proof that I no longer live in Indiana and the suspension on my Indiana license would be released. If that's true, would Illinois still require me to get an SR22? I understand that Illinois would still be able to see a previous DUI and suspension, but if I no longer have an "active" suspension (in Indiana), would I still face obstacles/repercussions in Illinois?
All excellent questions. First we start with the premise that EVERYTHING in IL is MORE DIFFICULT to achieve than...

Married a girl from Denmark drunk, how do I resolve it.
My fiance and I live in Illinois and want to get married. However, we just found out he us still married. When he was 25 yrs old (he is now 55) he got drunk and married a girl from Denmark here on vacation. She stated she would get it annulled through the Consulate when she went back home a week later but as it turns out she did not. We have made contact with her and she is still in Denmark and remarried. How do we get this resolved.

Can i have my dui reduce to a reckless driving or get it dismiss?
i had a dui back in feb 2014 which we WON NOT GUILTY. unfortunately i got hit with another one in MAY 2016 and we did not expunge the first dui. i did not blow on either yet i did do the sobriety test on both i remain calm and was not aggressive with the officer. well with that being said i have a possibly bench trial coming in a few months in chicago il basicly there is hardly enough evidence i would like to get the ticket dismiss but if i could get it reduce to a RECKLESS DRIVING i will take that. going to bench trial is harsh knowing that they could see i had a prior one not to long ago and possibly used it against me or maybe it could be irrelevant. if i get to reduce my 2 dui to a RECKELESS can i comeback a year or 2 and expunge or seal the reckless driving if not how long would it stay on my driving record or is it forever ?
Maybe. But what motivates the prosecution to do this unless you have s lawyer willing to go to trial? Better lawyer up.
What would happened with my child if I got arrested for DUI and child endangerment
This is my first offense, my record is clean, I passed the test police did but refused to blow because I was told never to blow. I didn't have to pay anything to bail out. I'm concerned about my child because she was in the car. What are my possibilities to get out of this without jeopardizing my child welfare.
