I consulted a lawyer in Boone County where it happened, and he told me that it was a basic traffic ticket with a light fine and no suspension and recommended I pay it and avoid the court date. I did so, but recently I received a suspension notice that starts August 17th. I attempted to have an... Read more »
A formal hearing would take just as long or in fact longer because you couldn't get it set until October. I assume they suspended you under 6-206 (a)(6) because you committed an offense in another state that, if committed in Illinois, would cause a suspension. However if it's a four lane...Read more »
I'm 16 and It was 2am, and I was going 60 in a 30, there was no one else on the road. got a ticket for past curfew and paid it, my court date is tomorrow. What are my chances of getting my license suspended vs getting supervision?
If this is your only ticket in the last 12 months and you are over 21, your chances of getting suspended even if you are convicted are zero. However, it is a class B misdemeanor, which is a criminal offense.

My friend was holding a smoke bomb in a parking garage and I took a picture of him, we both have court dates. I’m only 18 and I wanted to know if there’s any way I could make it so it’s not on my record. Also will anything come in the mail regarding the court date
Also, is there any way to go about this without insurance finding out, and/or without it staying on my record? Finally, what would this be classified as? Again, first offense but I am young so they may slam me... thank you.

Last night I got a ticket from Batavia police. My record is decent with no other moving violations for well over a year. Previously I used a lawyer for my daughters violations and it proved useful. But in this case I'm not sure a lawyer could do any better than the supervision option. So... Read more »
