Will being charged with a misdemeanor DUI violate my probation in another county?
I was charged with a misdemeanor DUI in Will County, but I have felony probation in Cook County. Im wondering if they will find out or how long it would take for them to find out. And if they do find out will it violate my probation.
Cook county will find out and will most likely violate your probation. There's no way to predict when exactly but most...
I need a DUI lawyer that can handle an appeal.
I was in a car accident 4/17/15. I was taken to the ER and examined. I was given Tylenol extra strength and Ultram. The hospital didn't write down I was given medication. I had to leave blood and urine samples. 8 months later, I receive a letter in the mail saying my license will be suspended for 6 months because of what was found in the blood and urine samples. I contested the suspension and in court found the only thing found in testing was Acetaminophen in my urine. I told them that acetaminophen was Tylenol and not a controlled substance. They didn't believe acetaminophen was Tylenol and upheld the suspension. Every person I have spoken to says this is wrong. 3 things. First the samples were taken after I was released from the ER and not before. Second, according to one attorney, a illicit drug test would not have detected acetaminophen but a medical test would have so I was given the wrong test. Third, acetaminophen is over the counter medication and is not controlled. The suspension will be up next week but I don't want a false DUI on my record and I want to find out who said acetaminophen was a controlled substance and take legal action against them.
You do not need an appellate attorney, You need a good DUI defense counsel who also handles hearings. Apparently you...
What can I do about court fines for a DUI?
Hello, in 2014 I received a DUI in Cook County, Illinois. I was sentenced to 2 years probation, 90 hours of Alcohol abuse treatment, 200 hours of community service, Impact panel session, revoked license, probation fees, required to pay re-instatement fees for my drivers license, and lastly $2,914.00 in Court fines, I have completed everything, except, paying my reinstatement fees for my Drivers license which I believe is $550.00, and the $2,914.00 in court fines. Probation fees, treatment, and community service have been taken care of, but with me being disabled and on a fixed income, of 871.00 a month has made it nearly impossible for me to save the money for the court fines. The most difficult part is the fact that I live 4 hours away in western Illinois away from Chicago. My probation will becoming to an end in December of this year 2016. I was told that I am to pay my fines in full at my last hearing in Cook County, less the reinstatement fees which will be sent to Springfield. I do not know what to do about the fines. I would like to know if there is some leniency when it comes to fines? Thank you for your time.

What would be the penalty that he's looking at for these DUIs?
A friend of mine was arrested for a DUI 2/14/2015 with a BAC of .24. Currently the case is still open, he should be sentenced at his next appearance. However, he was picked up on 4/9/2016 for an AGG DUI, no valid license and leaving the scene, among other charges. This is his second DUI arrest in Illinois, but he also has one DUI in Michigan which was about 10 years ago.
Your friend needs to consult an IL attorney right away. This is serious. In Colorado, for example, if someone is...
DUI Court supervision violation Illinois
I was placed on court supervision for a dui in cook county but I live in Winnebago county so they transferred my supervision so I can do my treatment close to home.. The people in Winnebago told me I have until December to finish classes, impact panel & community service.. I've finished everything except my com-service but now cook county sent me a violation notice because I haven't started my com-service yet but I don't know why because I was told I have until December to do 100hrs so I still have plenty of time and I haven't gotten any new charges... The case worker in Winnebago says he doesn't know why I'm being violated because to his knowledge I had until December to get it done and he doesn't control if cook county violates they are only facilitating my case
Get started on your community service and make sure you appear at your violation hearing. It is recommended that you...
Can people with a revoked licensed be reinstated, while being undocumented? And obtain a TVDL license?
I have a prior revoked license for a misdemeanor DUI. I how was never issued a license in the first place because I am undocumented. The time they issued me by the Secretary of State was a year, which is now over. In Illinois undocumented people can obtain TVDL licenses now.
