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...

What does "allotment this date vacated" mean in a DUI?
In a DUI case, this is from the sentencing on 4/11/17: "Defendant is ordered to serve a period of incarceration of 60 days in the xxxxx County Correctional Center.

When can I get an IL license after a DUI in another state?
I received a DUI in California (I was a CA resident at the time) last summer. I recently moved to Chicago for work back in December and have not needed a license because I live and work in downtown. However, my CA lawyer reached an agreement with the DA in the county it happened and I will be pleading guilty and accepting their plea which obviously means classes and fines. I know I can't get a license right now but at which point can I get an IL drivers license? once I start the classes ? Because I know I could get a restrictive license in CA as soon as I plead guilty and accept the plea. Not sure how it works here if the same applies or what needs to be done to get a license. It has already been suspended since September.
Your best bet is to complete ALL requirements that CA imposes upon you and get your CA D/L reinstated FIRST. THEN, you...

DUI in California moved to Illinois...now what?
I received a DUI in California and move to Chicago recently for work. I have not agreed to a plea deal or anything yet. I was wondering if I am able to get a Chicago license at this point or if I need to wait until I enter a plea and pay the fines then I can try to get a license. Basically if I go to the DMV at this point and try to get a license in Illinois what will happen?
Don't apply for an Illinois driver's license until the California case is resolved and any California license...
