How does dui probation in Dupage county work?
Last month I was sentenced to 24 months of probation for my second dui. The judge had told me that I will be randomly tested for alcohol via ETG tests twice a month. My question is will the probation department also test me for drugs (Marijuana) even though the court order only mentions that i will be tested for alcohol?
Yes... it's very likely that you'll be tested for alcohol, marijuana and numerous other drugs while in probation. Your...

My misdemeanor DUI was raised to a felony because of a class 2 felony in 8 years earlier, not a DUI.
i was passed out in my car with keys in ignition, in front of my house. The car was not running and i was charged with r dui. That was later raised to a felony. 17 months later The charged was reduced back to a misdemeanor because of, what i was told, by the States Attorney the case was to old for the charge. They had changed the class-2 from 2007 to a burglary from 1978. But their still treating it like a felony, with felony probation. My lawyer sucked.
And it's still pending? Wow. Why do I think there's more to this.

Can a DUI revoke my intense probation?
I'm currently on intense probation in Illinois and my wife got sick and threw up all over inside of the car. So I went to clean the car out and was pulled over for driving on suspended license and a DUI.
General conditions of any probation include obey all laws. You definitely need to consult with a criminal defense attorney.
Will I get US citizenship with DUI 8 years ago?
I wanted to know if I will have issue while filing for US Citizenship. I have been in USA for 14 years. I have had Green card for past 9 years. However 8 years ago I got a DUI. There was not property damage or accident involved. I had to take a class and my drivers license was suspended for a month. After this everything returned to normal. And since then I have not even had a single speeding ticket or parking violation. Mu record is clean. Even before DUI I had just one speeding ticket. Other than that nothing in my history. It was a stupid one time mistake and lesson learned. With this in mind and the current administration in mind do you think I will have issue with my filing for US citizenship?
You should direct this question to your immigration attorney. I have reclassified the question to that category.
Will a citation for weed paraphernalia affect my current on going dui process?
I was walking in starved rock and wondered off the trail. Long story short, the cops found a piece of paraphernalia on me. I was not high, nor have I smoked in a while so I know I can pass any drug test. Background on my dui: It was minor in the sense that I was not reckless driving, just forgot to put my turn signal on. Unfortunately it was still a dui, but it should be the minimum it can get as far as dui's go.
I'm not quite sure what question you are actually asking. Is your DUI pending? If you are out on bond on your DUI case,...
