Asked in DUI / DWI for Illinois

Q: I got pulled over with a bac of .19 103 on a 50 and a swerving citation. Can I get court supervision?

I was heading to a park to park for safety and sleep it off, it’s my first offense and have no other record besides paying a open vodka bottle citation two weeks back. I’m 21

A: You are legally eligible for supervision. If you can, you should have a lawyer to increase the chances you will receive supervision and also negotiate the best outcome possible.

A: Two of the three charges are Class A Misdemeanors which are punishable by up to 364 days in jail and up to $2,500.00 in fines not including mandatory assessments. Where Court Supervision is an option, but you will need an attorney to assist you with these matters. As you should be aware, your license is going to be suspended for 6 months starting 46 days after you were arrested due to your BAC results. An attorney could help you fight this suspension and the pending DUI, but you need to hire one now.
