Does a second DUI (charged out of state as a DUI 1st) trigger the 5 year license suspension in Illinois?
I have a DUI in Illinois from 96. I received a second DUI in Montana this year. It's been charged as a DUI 1st. Will a reduced plea in Montana, to a per se 1st, trigger the 5 year license suspension in Illinois?
There is no five year suspension in Illinois. If you mean five year revocation, that requires a second conviction. The...

"Some Blue Cross guy?" Did you ask for identification and the purpose of the call? It is possible you were speaking...
Does police departments report DUI arrests of international students to USCIS or U.S. Embassies abroad?
I am an international student here in U.S.A. A month ago, I was arrested for DUI. Now, I am worried that the police might have reported my arrest to U.S. Embassy in my country and the embassy effectively cancelled my visa. If that happens, I cannot visit back to my country and come back to U.S.A. Also, I am concerned that the police might have reported the arrest to USCIS or my school. If that happens, USCIS might put me out of my F1 status. I hired an attorney, she says that she will have the judge throw the case out.
The information does to the Department of State, which does issue visa revocations. The arrest is sufficient for a...
May I request a blood test instead of a breathalyzer should I ever be pulled over for suspected DUI ?
I have diabetes and if I don't control my sugar levels right my doctor said that I could throw a false positive on a breathalyzer test . In the state of Illinois you get your license suspended if you refuse a breathalyzer so I was wondering if the event should ever arise if I could avoid the consequence by submitting to a blood test instead of a breathalyzer because her blood test is always accurate
This is a GREAT question and an area in which I have frequent contact. 1st: you should ALWAYS wear a MEDIC ALERT...

Should I get a second opinion on my DUI case?
I know all of the advice on here is just to hire an attorney and listen to them. I have done that but is it good to get a second opinion before entering a plea? Here are the relevant facts: Pulled over for speeding., cooperated with cop, took 3 standardized field sobriety tests. According to the cops written report and the video I passed (with no clues) both the walk and turn test and the one-leg stand test. But he says I failed the HGN test, he then gave me a PBT and I failed, went to the station and blew a .1. My lawyer has advised me to plea guilty and get court supervision. I trust him so I am likely going to listen but its just a tough pill to swallow, the punishment doesn't fit the crime. Is it worth it to have a summary suspension hearing even if you will likely loose?
I see your question more as a general question which is should you seek a second opinion for anything (medical, legal,...
