  • Wheeling police release report of siblings' arrest

    Jun 26, 2015 | via Daily Herald 

    Wheeling police Friday released the original arrest report for two siblings earlier this month that prompted an internal investigation after their mother claimed in a TV interview that an amateur video showed her daughter being treated overly roughly by officers as she was taken into custody. Wheeling Deputy Police Chief Todd Wolff said the internal review of the June 6 arrests of 19-year-old Christian Ruiz of Wheeling and his 21-year-old sister Ashley Rodriguez of Chicago is likely to take another week.

My son is on supervision for a DUI. He has no income. He is unable to pay his $1900.00 court cost. Will he go to jail?
He is on supervision for his first DUI. He fulfilled all of the requirements set forth by the courts. His final hearing is in March at which time he is to pay his court costs of $1900.00. He has no income and is 28 years old. If he can't pay his court costs, his case manager told him he would go to jail for 30 days. Is this true?
Hopefully your son has a lawyer. If not, he should at least consult with one. Has your son's case been continued...
Received DUI in 2005 & retail theft in 2001 & 2002 -- Have been permanent resident since 1988
My court date is finally tomorrow I cannot express my fear. I was put in deportation proceedings after I applied for Citizenship in 2008 for crimes of moral turpitude due to my 2001 & 2002 retail theft convictions. I am now 36 yrs old happily married with 2 small children, boy 5 yrs and girl 15 months and I am 3 months pregnant. I have been at my job almost 5 years and I am deeply sorry for my mistakes and bad judgement. All fines, probations, supervison and requirements were met. And I do not have any aggravated crimes. What are the chances everything will be ok tomorrow? I entered the US in 1985 with H-4 Visa with my parents and siblings (I was 9 yrs old at the time).
You can hope. You've run afoul of the law three times in seven years. That may not impress the decision maker.
BAIID Device possible violation, questions..
I had an issue with my BAIID device. It is a FR9000 ignition interlock. I was driving from work andalready completed one rolling test. I then turned on the air conditioning and realized that the screen on the sample head shut off. I found this weird as it has never happened before. I turned the AC off and after a few minutes, the BAIID device came back on. I did this a few more times to confirm that the AC was causing this and it was. Later in the drive, it asked for a retest. I began to blow but couldn't get the timing right with the beeps. I thought the device was malfunctioning. There seemed to be more beeps than before. It continued beeping and being afraid that the car would turn off in the middle of the road, I pulled off the road, turned off the car and restarted. What should I do?
You can document the problem by contacting the installer but most of them are reluctant to help or admit their fault....
Hi, I was just issued an RDP along with the requirement for a BAID and I had a question.
I was wondering whether or not the SOS can see the times/dates of my breath samples into the BAIID to determine whether or not I'm driving within my allotted days/times and possibly issue violations based on that? Anyone have experience with this issue? I'm not planning on violating my driving hours but sometimes things happen--being stuck at work later, having to move cars around so family can get in/out of the garage, etc.
Yes. Every single blow is recorded. The SOS will not review each one as a matter of routine. The danger would be if...
Just arrested for DUI in Chicago. Blew 0.134. First offense. Can I get supervision with guilty plea/finding?
Officer pulled me over for following too closely. Proceeded with DUI investigation. Voluntarily submitted to breathalyzer and blew 0.134. Was unaware that I could refuse the test or of the consequences for failing. The officer told me that it was nothing to worry about since it was my first offense. I was never offered a telephone call until I had already been arrested and processed. Upon being released and viewing the documentation I was given a total of 5 violations, I only knew of 2 DUI & following too closely.
You are eligible for supervision on a first offense. You should consider speaking with an attorney for your case.
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....
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.
Who is "he/him" and what are/were the charges? Your question has a lot of facts but is very confusing. Perhaps if you...
