Bloomington Law

I have two DUI convictions one in2006 and one in 2008. I plead guilty to them both in 2009. can I get CDL
The first I had a CDL but was not in a truck. The second I didn't have a CDL. I volunteered a breath test on both. Have done all my councilng.
Commercial DL? My understanding of the law, is that its a life long disqualification after 2 DUIs on the federal level.
Failed BAIID reading of 0.070 after mouthwash?
Just received a letter from the SOS requesting an explanation of a violation that occurred as a result of using mouthwash. I was completely sober at the time and the BAIID registered a reading of 0.070 and I did not follow up with a retest as I now know I should have but I ended up riding with my brother to lunch anyways. I am currently on my last month of MDDP and have had no previous violations prior to this one incident. Will this be an acceptable explanation for the SOS? (I have had 2 previous readings at other times that failed but both were well below .05 thus not being violations)
It may not be acceptable. Such a reading it quite high for just mouthwash. However, you must simply just tell the...

My son (age 18) received a ticket for consumption of alcohol by a minor in Bloomington, Illinois.
We thought this was an ordinance violation and expected fine and court costs. This is his first ever alcohol offense. He has no license because I could not afford to put him on my insurance. Judge said he could face loss of license (which he has never had), thousands in fines, year in jail. States attorney office sent people out to talk to others offering fines to be done with court that day. No one came to speak to my son. Only saw the judge in court. Those people had no lawyers and most were serious offenses like possession charges. What kind of lawyer am I to try to get and is this normal for a first alcohol offense? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
you should contact the clerk of the court. The phone number should be on The Ticket and /or the documentation you...
If a DUI is dismissed or someone is found not guilty in both situations can the person immediately seal in Illinois?
I had a DUI that I was found not guilty on at a bench trial and recently had one get dismissed prior to trial. Can these two scenarios be sealed immediately? The reason I ask is I have contacted attorneys and received different answers. The one I was found not guilty on I received court supervision for disobeying a stop sign. One attorney told me that I could seal this immediately and another said there is a waiting period because I was put on court supervision for a petty traffic offense. I do not want to put the money into an attorney if there is this waiting period....
To be eligible for expungement, you must have no prior convictions, including ordinance violations. If the case is...
