A: You are charged with a Class B Misdemeanor, so you need to hire an attorney to assist you. Class B Misdemeanors are punishable by up to 6 months in jail. You need to hire an attorney now.

A: Speeding 26-34 mph over the limit is a Class B misdemeanor (max penalty 6 months in jail and a $1500 fine). Despite the fact that it was your sister's car, Illinois law still places responsibility on the driver to make sure that the vehicle is insured. A conviction would cause a license suspension. Assuming you have a good driving record, there should be a way to resolve your case favorably and avoid serious consequences. Consult directly with an attorney that practices in the courthouse where your case in pending.
