Which is worse to have in Illinois? Reckless driving or DUI
My attorney asked if I would be willing to enter a guilty plea of reckless driving instead of going to trial.
Reckless is better. A DUI conviction is an automatic revocation.
Can i get a hardship license before i have my groups completed to apply to get my license reinstated? can you tell me the proces
I have a revoked license due to commiting a felony while operating a vehicle, I am in the process of doing my groups but still have 70 hours to complete and really need to get a hardship license to get back forth to work as it is costly and hard to get transportation to and from work for me. I also have an elderly father that has to go back and forth to dr appointments. I also need transportation to and from group and dr appointments for myself.
Short answer - If your license is revoked for an non-alcohol/drug-related reason, your normally would not need an...
I recieved a dui and 6 months suspension i paid reinstament fee got my licence back can court convict me 6 months later
do the court have to convict me before i got lience back
Yes, what the court does with the underlying DUI is not controlled by what happens with the suspense
DUI on background check.
Months ago I signed a contract to work for an accounting firm after graduation. Very recently I was charged with a DUI. My first court date is very soon. Ironically I was was just sent the pre-employment background check. How would the DUI look on a background check at this point? It shows that I have been charged on, but I'm wondering how this would look on a background check due to there being no verdict.
it won't look good, but it will look worse if you lie and they find out.
I received a Statutory Summary of Suspension and on the report it does not state reasonable grounds. Defective?
I was served with a sworn report for a statutory summary of suspension. On the report, it leaves an area to write reasonable grounds. On the one I have it is blank. It doesn't state that this is optional. Does my ticket for "failure to reduce speed" constitute as the reasonable grounds on my report even if not on there. I have a hearing coming up and I am wondering if this could be defective.
There is no defect, and even if there was, the document could be amended on its face in court. You need a lawyer.
If offered RDP for work in illinois, after an informal hearing, with the mandatory time expired, can I fight for full license?
I guess i should have got a lawyer ahead of time, i went to the hearing with a bunch of treatment documents ( 2s ) cause i had weed on me when arrested for leaving the scene. this was almost 10 years ago. the hearing officer did seem like she genuinely wanted me to get my license back, she said i should get it or a work permit, but its up to the review officer. ( I haven't gotten the letter back from Springfield yet. )
If by the license you mean a completely unfettered, unrestricted drivers license, the answer is no. You will not be...
I got arrested for an DUI refusal in Indiana but live in Illinois. What should I expect in the coming Months?
Background is clean with no prior arrests, but 1 speeding and 1 seat-belt ticket. Refused to take PBT (portable breathalyser test) then was offered sobriety test on dotted line into on-coming traffic (told officer I would prefer not to do it into on-coming traffic). Placed into squad car, refused PBT again. Transported to jail, refused again, processed and placed into holding. Was never read Miranda Rights (are they just implied with a DUI refusal?) Blew 0.00 when allowed to blow a few hours later after bail was posted.
You really should retain an attorney in IL to help you through this -- there are not only criminal consequences, but...
