Q: If I got pulled over on a suspended license, but fixed it before court do I plead guilty still or not guilty?

The pull over was in Peoria, I knew they had been suspended before but they were still suspended due to financial reasons out of my control and since I’m in college and was not working at the time so I had to depend on my parents to pay things for me.

Go to court with your cleared license and make sure it is valid on the day you appear in court. See what the prosecutor is offering. Sometimes they will dismiss this type of charge and sometimes they will not. You really should hire a local attorney to assist you with this matter because that... Read more »

Q: In Illinois, do all summary of suspension get sent to the secretary of state automatically or is it up to the

Prosecutor? Mine happened on private property and my attorney is reluctant to file the petition to rescind SSS because he says the don't all get sent. I dont agree nor believe that. I'm going to fire him and I just hired him.

Juan Ooink answered on Aug 22, 2019

What? It does not matter if your attorney files a Petition to Rescind. It is up to the officer to send the paperwork into the Sec. Of State Office. Your attorney really needs to file a Petition to Rescind right away. If he will not, you should hire someone that will and right away.

Q: I am 21 and received three speeding tickets within 1 month. These happened in three different counties in Illinois.

May I ask for court supervision on any of these tickets? And if so which one? It seems if I ask for it on the 1st ticket, it could be revoked due to the 2nd and 3rd ticket.

Juan Ooink answered on Aug 12, 2019

You are allowed two court supervisions every 12 months, so you can ask for court Supervision on two of the three tickets. I suggest asking on the first two you have to appear in court on.

It means just what it says. The prosecutor filed a motion to increase or modify your bond, so you should be prepared to address it when you are in court. You should notify your attorney right away. If you have not hired an attorney yet, you should do so right away.

Juan Ooink answered on Aug 8, 2019

What? Your scenario does not make any sense. You need to discuss all of this with your attorney, which I am assuming you have since you had some sort of plea deal. If you do not have an attorney, you need to hire one right away.

You should be fine, but you need to slow down because this new ticket will result in a conviction and if you receive two moving violation convictions in a 24 month period, you will lose your license.

Not really sure what you are asking here. Adult criminal matters are all a matter of public law, so anyone can review the file on any adult defendant unless the case has been sealed or expunged.
