How do I approach a out of state, under age DUI first offense ?
3 weeks ago I drove to Tennessee for the first time to watch a UFC Event for the first time as well in Nashville. I had a couple beers during the event . After wards I felt pretty good to drive so I started heading back to Illinois. I drove about 1 hour and 30 minutes and arrived in Kentucky in Smith Grove then I stop at a gas station to buy some chips after that when I got back in my car I remember yawning as I got back in the road . Right before I decided to keep going I didn't want to risk it but I noticed two things I couldn't go back and the next exit was at least 5 miles away .. so I decided to go into incoming traffic but there wasn't just so I can go around real fast . I parked on side of the road me facing the opposite side won't . I was just trying rest. About 40 to 60 minutes passed at least . Then a cop knocked on my window . And asked I was drinking I said yes because I know he can smell it . He made me do a walking test, eye coordination test which I know I passed . The only thing I didn't pass was the breathlzer . Then dui was charged. In Illinois laws are different from Kentucky. I want to know how I can defend myself from 1 year suspension in Illinois
If you are convicted in KY you are facing a minimimum one year revocation which has no automatic termination date. In...

What are the outcomes for not completing an alcohol eval. after being sent to court and getting an extension to complete it?
I have missed 3 alcohol eval's and because of it was sent to court by my case worker. The judge gave me an extension to get it done by a certain date and i was still unable to get it done. It has nothing to do with me being oblivious and showing disregard for the law but rather because of my inability to be able to afford the money to pay for it due to saving money to pay off court fines as im a full time student and work just part time. The DUI charge is back from April and it has been almost a year since my last DUI hearing(June). I had a highly reputable lawyer in the area to help me with the case but am trying to avoid going back to him as again money is an issue for me. Im a smart kid who is doing everything i can to be somebody but im afraid the judge will think and act otherwise.
Apparently you are a smart kid but not smart enough to know how high your risk is becoming after missing your court...
Can I get my summary suspension rescinded in IL if the police officer forgot to sign my summary suspension receipt?
I got a DUI two days ago. I blew a .18 and was arrested and booked. I was let go with a traffic ticket for speeding, and two DUI tickets (one for having a BAC over .16). I am going to talk to a lawyer and he mentioned I might be able to get my suspension rescinded. I looked at my summary suspension form and on the back there is a 'receipt to drive' but the arresting officer didn't fill it out at all and didn't even sign it. The text says "not valid if not signed by arresting officer" Is this something I can use in my summary suspenson hearing or am i reaching? I really need to be able to drive and I hope I can get it rescinded but I was just curious if this is something usable in court.
Possibly. You should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. There are statutory time lines for filing the...
RDP Violation
I have RDP from Jan/2013-Jan/2014 and Ive had 1st violation in Feb for tempering w/the device which was explained due to freezing of the device during the winter. 2nd violation in June for reading of .125 which was explained by my roommate's action without my knowledge. And I had a violation this morning for readings .058, .048, .030, .024 in 2 hr period. I thought 5 attempts at .05 or high reading is a violation but I was wrong. I was a Level 2 Significant Risk. When the SOS sends me a letter, how likely is it for my RDP to be canceled and any suggestions for response to the explanation letter? Thank you.
As a level 2 the RDP will not be canceled for high readings. (you are correct 5 attempts above .05 is a violation but...

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.
