I received a violation on my BAIID device
Long story short, as my friend was driving my car home as I had been drinking the night before, the plastic mouthpiece cracked and I didn't have an extra with me. 2 minutes from my house, the BAIID went off asking for a sample. I thought we'd make it home before my car locked but we didn't, we stopped in a parking lot 30 seconds from my house. My friend was scared to try and provide a sample in the broken mouthpiece, so foolishly, I tried and failed the test. They then waited the two minute period for a retest and they passed and drove my car home. I got a letter from the SOS yesterday asking me to write an explanation as to what happened. I know I screwed up, especially since my permit expires this month. Will they give me a three month extension and will court find out?
If you've never had a problem before, your explanation may be excepted. If you have an attorney, you should probably...

Can you get your license reinstated after 7 convictions of driving on a suspended?
My fiance is currently serving 364 days in Cook County for driving on a revoked license. The last 20 years he has gotten 7 driving on revoked, and 2 DUI convictions (no accidents or injuries). He has totally cleaned up his life. His last arrest was 2 years ago and the case just go heard. He no longer drinks alcohol, he never did drugs. We are expecting our first baby shortly after he gets out and it is going to make it hard for me to drive him. His arrest date was 6/27/2011, he will be released on 9/30/2013, can he apply for a workers license right away?
Not until all his hard time on his suspension and any extensions have run. Go to an informal hearing officer for a...

It was a first offense and I met all court requirements.
Traffic tickets are not expunged. They remain on your driving record but they do not show up on your criminal record.
Can i be deported from the US (Permanent resident) for a first DUI offence even tough i got a court supervision?
I was out of the country and when i came back the immigration officer after scanning my id stopped me and asked if i was arrested, I told him i got a DUI a year ago and he then told me that i can be deported from US and then took me to another room in the back and made me wait and took my green card and passport. Afte 10 mins another immigration officer came and gave me my documents back and told me i could go. This incident really scared me and i am wondering if they can really deport you for a DUI offence.
You cannot be deported without getting notice of removal proceedings in most cases. It is unlikely you will be...
