I was arrested for a DUI two weeks ago and have two questions.
1) If my license is suspened, but I obey every single traffic law, how would I ever be pulled over? I have never been pulled over for "nothing" in 22 years of driving. My attorney tells me you can only be pulled over for "probable cause". 2) I am a first time offender for DUI. What percent chance is there of me going to jail? I have a court date in three days. No one but myself was in the car, and no one was hurt. I crashed into a tree after blacking out.
The standard for a stop is "reasonable suspicision, not probable cause. And the police can run your license plates for...

Will probation be given or denied?
He has been in custody for 4 months to be exact. He was picked up on a warrant for fta in court three years ago for an agg. DUI. He didnt show up because he was afraid and also because his brother passed away in the same month or so. And the attorney hired at the time was of no help at all. We have proof of the brothers death. Would that help in any case? He was offered a year in prison, three years ago. Can he get probation with the time spent in custody already? Thank you.

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
Very simply put, your daughter needs an attorney. There are many great DY defense attorneys in the greater metro area....
