How to find DUI records
My 6 year old son lives mostly with my ex-wife. She has been on several evening dates recently, and I have heard through the grapevine that she is driving under the influence. Obviously, I fear for my son. How can I find out if she has any DUI's?
Criminal History Records information is only available from the Illinois State Police. Information is located at their...
Is there any purpose to having legal representation for a DUI-1st time offender?
My daughter was pulled over because her headlights werent turned on & was told to take a breathalyzer test so she did. We now find out that she did not have to do that. She said they never told her it was an option. They just told her to breathe into it & she did. She went to jail and I had to pick her up. They wrote on the ticket that it was .181 and her pupils were dialated with open alcohol etc. My daughter says thats a lie-there was no alcohol in her car. The IL DMV sent a letter indicating her license will be suspended next month. Is there any use in fighting this? I am in no way condoning or taking away the seriousness of this offense but we keep receiving all these letters for DUI lawyers. Will she go jail? She does not have a record. Shes in college and works. Pls Advise

Why doesn't Illinois follow the laws of other states when it comes to DIUs?
I recieved a DUI in Texas, they suspended my license for 6 months and notified the state I live in (Illinois) The Illinois Secretary of State then suspended my license for an additional year, ANY THOUGHTS? Thank You,
First of all, you are not suspended. You are revoked. That means that you will not automatically regain driving...
DUI advice
I was pulled over on us rt. 41 northbound by park west (it goes down to 40 mph) I was pulled over for speeding (clocked me at 74 mph). Did some field sobriety tests and blew 0.081 and was taken to the station. I was polite and admired to drinking one blue moon and at the station I blew a 0.071. Why did they check the box to suspend my license? And what are the chances I can beat this case?
I wouldn't feel comfortable giving you odds on "beating" the case without more information. Based on what you have...
Can you win a petition to rescind statutory summary suspension if you did not refused to submit to and/or complete the tests?
I was just charged with a DUI. I was looking online at the forms and one of the forms is this Petition to Rescind Statutory Summary Suspension. One of the boxes says "The Defendant did not refuse to submit to and/or complete the required chemical test or tests, pursuant to 625 ILCS 5/11-501.1 (d) of the Illinois Vehicle Code, upon the request of the arresting officer". In this particular case, I did in fact do the breath test (I blew over .08) and I did do the exercises on the side of the road. Does that I mean I will win this Petition to Rescind? If not, what does it mean? Thanks
No, that ground does not apply to you. It applies to people who have been alleged to have refused or failed to...
I was charged with DUI 5 years ago, got it cleared in court but still shows up in my fingerprints. How can I get that fixed?
I have no other tickets, never have done any other offense, was not given supervision, only had to go to victim panel and some classes and pay fines. I did not have a suspended license either, was able to drive the next day and given my license. I thought after 5 years would be off my record but when I went to get my fingerprints, it showed up and I'm trying to get a job in early childhood center.
It sounds like you received a sentence of court supervision. Under Illinois law, this was not a criminal conviction,...
