This site is designed to give general info to the public, and not specific legal advice. Aside from that, you have not provided enough facts to enable us to give you a responsible answer. Most of all, it is improper for any of Justia's cooperating attorneys to venture an opinion based upon the fact that you are already represented. Your attorneys know all of the facts, we don't. The best answer to your question must come from them.

Q: will you get your license still if you got a ticket for not wearing a seat belt in the back seat?

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois on
Answered on Aug 14, 2017

Your questions is confusing to me. I am assuming that you have never been issued a license and you would like to know if you can still get a license having been issued a no seat belt ticket. You should not have any issues getting your license assuming you have resolved the ticket and paid the fine if one was given to you.

Q: Okay so my mother has stolen 1800$ worth of property from me can I press charges ? I'm 20

1 Answer | Asked in Consumer Law, Criminal Law, Family Law and Civil Rights for Illinois on
Answered on Aug 14, 2017

Only the state can press charges.

The prosecutor relies on the police to report the crime.

Looks like you are out of luck on that one.

However, you can sue your mother.

That is a civil case and does not involve the police.
