Police forced me to go to the hospital when I told them I didnt want to go after car accident.
If there is any possibility that you were injured, the police are obligated to make sure you are OK. It is not a...
I've recieved a DUI last year and have been placed on supervision for 24 months. Due to my dilligence of completion of everything required of me, my lawyer was able to get an early termination of my supervision. My issue is that I have a CDL and because of a DUI charge, it has been disqualified. I motioned up the case in hopes of getting this charge amended. I know this is a very difficult thing to do, but I need my CDL for my job. Would it be a good idea to have my mother to also speak on my behalf?
I understand the hardships you face regarding your CDL. You are not alone. I have seen many people facing similar...

You have a chance of getting your vehicle back, but how much time is "a while back?" Hopefully you have a lawyer who...
The arresting officer said he stopped me for my head lights not being on and nothing else. I went to court judge reviews video agrees that head lights are indeed on I won my rescission and my license where given back. Went back to court for the dui part of the case in front of a new judge whom agree that my head lights are on but states" you did swerve" while watching the video. In the court transcript there is nothing in print that was mention in that hearing its like the court reporter stopped typing its just blank. There is no ruling in the file in print however someone wrote on the court docket motion denied with no ruling or reason for the denial to quash. So my only guess is it was denied because the judge says the officer had probable cause to stop me for the swerve.
It sounds like this judge did believe there was probable cause to stop based on you "serving." Did you have an attorney...
So my DUI case is coming up in 5 days. I hired a lawyer about a month ago, and he never told me anything about not needing to go to court. I call him this week and he says "I don't think you need to go" because he said he can arrange for court supervision because this is my first DUI, and I have a pretty clean record except for a couple driving tickets. First off, does this make sense? Should I still attend? The thing I worry about the most is what if I don't show up and I somehow get absolutely screwed over because my lawyer told me not to and then obviously big consequences there. Lawyer said he's been busy and almost forgot about me. Any advice here on what to do, or question to ask lawyer will be huge. I’m very new to all of this. Thanks a lot!. I live in Chicago, but case is out town
I handle the vast majority of my classes without my clients present. Seems like you don't trust your attorney's advice....
I received a DUI two years ago in Illinois and was placed on two years supervision. I have paid all the court fees and complied with all of my sentence. I have documentation and receipts to as evidence to demonstrate this. Is it necessary for my lawyer to be at court with me for the termination date or will the judge simply verify I have completed my sentence? If my lawyer is required, will be request an additional fee for being there?
If you are in complete compliance, your attorney need not appear with you for your final court date. As for whether...
I was stopped for questionable driving and asked by the police to submit to a DUI kit. I provided both blood and urine specimens. I asked the officer what test would be run on these specimens. I was told a blood alcohol and urine drug screen 7. Is this correct or does the police lab run the screen based on what drugs were in the vehicle? Thank you
probably good enough to find whatever it is you hope they won't find.
