A: If you are 21 or older, 3 convictions within 12 months will cause a license suspension. If the two Arkansas tickets are reported back to Illinois and you are convicted of the Illinois ticket you will be suspended. You may want to consult with an attorney that practices in the area that you received the Illinois ticket to help keep a conviction off of your record. A dismissal or court supervision would prevent the ticket from counting toward a license suspension.

A: I would hire an attorney for the Illinois ticket. If you have three convictions on your record you will get suspended if you are over 21 years old. Make sure whether the Arkansas tickets are logged in on your Illinois record becasue they will count

A: You need to hire an attorney in Arkansas and in Illinois to handle these tickets for you. The sooner you hire an attorney in each state the better.
