Are all infractions supposed to be treated equally in our court system? My cousin failed to appear for DUI court & no warrant:
I was scheduled to be in court on 8/5/13 at 10AM. My grandma was my ride to court & she'd had a stroke just before. I called the Marshall County State's Attorney to let them know I would be unable to attend court & was told it would be alright if payments on my fines were made and that the date would be rescheduled. My arrangement was $20 per month & $60 was paid on 7/10/13 - I thought I was covered. I had a probation appointment on 10/2/13 in the Marshall County Courthouse building & had seen on my file on that there was a review that same day. I asked my probation officer if I should be in the courtroom & was told no. I had my next probation appointment on 11/4/13 at which time I was arrested & discovered a warrant was issued on 10/2/13.
Any time you have a scheduled court appearance it's up to you to attend. Relying on others telling you that you don't...
Will I not get hired because of a DUI?
I have already went through the interview process for a job in which I now have to wait to take the drug test and get the background check done (which will happen on the 20th). However in the time between signing the papers (9th) and getting the background check done I got arrested for a dui on the jan 13th which is before my background check (jan 20th). My court date isn't until the next month (February 13th) and my license has not yet been suspended (I got 46 days until). Will this arrest show up on this background check even though I have not yet been convicted?
Yes it will show up on a background check most likely. How can we answer a question about an unknown employer and...
How should I go about getting an Illinois license when I have a prior DUI in Indiana?
I grew up and got my license in Indiana. One month before moving to Chicago, I got a DUI (in Indiana). I was given permission to serve probation and attend substance abuse counseling in Illinois, but my license was suspended for 3 months. I sold my car and haven't driven since. Now its been a little over 2 years and I'd like to at least be able to drive if I wanted/needed to, but I'm concerned with the non-standard nature of my situation ---- My initial 3 month suspension has obviously passed, but my license in Indiana is still suspended, pending submission of an SR22 and payment of reinstatement fee. I'm now an Illinois resident, so having an Illinois license would be preferred. Indiana BMV told me if I did not wish to reinstate my Indiana license (to get an Illinois license instead), I would just have to provide proof that I no longer live in Indiana and the suspension on my Indiana license would be released. If that's true, would Illinois still require me to get an SR22? I understand that Illinois would still be able to see a previous DUI and suspension, but if I no longer have an "active" suspension (in Indiana), would I still face obstacles/repercussions in Illinois?
All excellent questions. First we start with the premise that EVERYTHING in IL is MORE DIFFICULT to achieve than...
