So, basically, he went to jail once for not complying with the conditions of his probation. He was bonded out, and a petition to revoke probation was added to his case.

Your boyfriend's situation is complex, and while he has now completed the class, the timing is not ideal. Judges often look for compliance with court orders and probation conditions. His failure to initially comply and the continuances could be seen negatively. However, completing the class...View More
You pled guilty and paid the fines, so there is no want of prosecution. The state has fully prosecuted the case to a guilty plea and collected its fine. I am not seeing this as a viable course of action. If being ability to produce the documents is creating some other sort of hardship, you might...View More

He hasn’t lost his license yet. He got away with basically nothing from the first dui. Now that he has violated his probation and got another dui what would be expected might happen. This is in illinois.
He could very well end up with two convictions, particularly since they are in two different counties. If he only ends up with one conviction , his license will be revoked for a minimum of 12 months. If he receives to convictions, he will have to drive on a restrictive permit for five years with...View More
Your question is unclear. I can’t tell who is being charged, you, your son, or someone else? I’m not even sure who was driving. But in any event, if someone is charged with drunk, driving in an accident in which someone suffers “great bodily harm“ it can be charged with a felony regardless...View More

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...View More
Both of the DUIs occurred over 20 years ago and I completed all required treatment. I don’t drink and I would like to get my license back now that I have children and a new job that I need to be able to drive for. Does the fact that it was over 20 years ago have any impact.
The fact that is 20 years certainly does not hurt. The fact that you completed all your treatment may or may not be relevant, depending upon what your classification is and what you’re drinking and or drug use has been like since you’ve completed treatment.

I was pulled over for an inoperative registration light. The Illinois State Trooper initially acted like it was no big deal until he returned from running my license. Then is when his demeanor changed. He wanted to search my purse, & I consented. When nothing illegal was found there he asked to... View More

A lot of this depends on the facts and circumstances of the arrest and one's background. However, if an individual pleads guilty and then violates a condition of their sentence (for instance, to abstain from alcohol), then the prosecutor could file a petition to revoke the sentence and ask to...View More

I have been in a treatment center twice during this time trying to get my life straightened out. It was difficult to find somewhere to complete service... View More
I think it’s worth it. It’s painful to lose your license and deal with the Secretary of State. A lawyer who has a lot of experience with the court system in your county will have a lot better chance of saving your supervision than you would on your own.
