Bolingbrook, IL asked in DUI / DWI for Illinois

Q: Can I ask for supervision a second time after getting off a 6 month court vision?

I got my first ticket in June of 2021… then I received another ticket in March of 2022 and I was on court supervision for 6months started in the end of March of 2022 and recently ended in September of 2022. I got 2 new tickets and one I got it for speeding and the other avoiding traffic… will I be able to ask for a second supervision on my next court date?

A: Yes, you would be eligible for a second court supervision sentence in the state of Illinois. However, Illinois law states you cannot get supervision more than two times in a 12 month period. So make sure you are careful moving forward as you most likely would not be eligible again on any other future traffic ticket in the near future.
