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.
DCFS could start a stalled investigation. Get a lawyer quickly.
