What are the chances of getting impounded car $500 fee reimbursed?
There is an administrative hearing scheduled. Car got towed after DUI arrest based on field sobriety tests "results" (stopped for speeding). Blew 0.065 BAC at the station. There is an evidence that field sobriety tests were given under wrong circumstances. Case is going to trial. How likely it is to be considered "wrongly" arrested and get fee back, or is it more likely that police officer was doing everything to serve the community and I should just forget the $500 fee and move on.
You will have a very hard time getting your $500 back.

Does IL define a "forcible felony" different from any other sort of felony? I am wondering because of (SB 42/PA 99-0886).
Health Care License - Forcible Felony (SB 42/PA 99-0886): Provides that a felon cannot apply for reinstatement of a healthcare license until at least 3 years from their release from incarceration or 5 years after their conviction, whichever is the later date. (As passed the senate, reinstatement was set at 5 years from conviction.)
It's defined in the Criminal Code, 720 ILCS 5/2-8. Basically any felony which involves the use or threat of physical...
Can I report a driver who is on a suspended license?
I was recently struck by an uninsured motorist. I've made attempts to contact him and sent him a letter outlining the damages and repairs. I would have had no issue working out a payment plan but he never returned contact or showed up for his court date. Per the IL statue, his licenses was suspended but he still uses his vehicle for work and drives it. Am I allowed to report him to the police and dispatch an officer if I see him driving?
Yes, you can report any crime you witness to the police.
Can I get charged with a DUI after failing the field sobriety test and passing the breathalyzer test?
I got pulled over at 3 am. Told the officers I had 2 beers around 10 pm then they made me take the field sobriety test from which he said he could arrest me based on how I performed. He said I did not perform well on it. So he made me take the breathalyzer test and I blew 0.049. He said he is letting me go and gave me my license back and I drove away as he told me I can. Can I still get charged with a dui in the mail even after he let me drive away?
Your story makes more sense if this is a PBT, rather than the machine at the station. In either event, enormously unlikely.
