Should I Talk To The Police?
Except in limited circumstances, talking to the police following an arrest is a risky proposition that could make the situation much worse. The police are specially trained to obtain information following an arrest that can be, and is often, used against you in court.
Will I Go To Jail?
Being arrested for a misdemeanor or felony charge carries the threat of jail or a prison sentence. Determining whether you will go to jail for your case depends heavily on whether you have any prior criminal history and the level of the offense you’ve been charged with.
What Happens To My License After A DUI?
Getting arrested for a DUI in Illinois will automatically result in a suspension of your driving privileges anywhere from six months up to three years. This suspension can be contested at a hearing in court on several different grounds. Being found guilty of a DUI can also result in the revocation of your driver’s license if you are convicted.
Do I Need An Attorney?
Certain criminal law and DUI laws in Illinois are among the strictest and most complex in the country. Considering that the threat of jail time exists for all misdemeanor and felony offenses committed, it is always important to have a knowledgeable and experienced attorney to protect you and your rights throughout the case.
