If you have 2 DUI's from Michigan (2001 & 2002), & get pulled over for a DUI in IL with suspended license, is it a felony?
My boyfriend's license was suspended after 2 DUI's from MI in 2001 & 2002. He got pulled over with a BAC of .193 and doing 74 in a 40 in October of 2012. Will the court consider this his 3rd DUI and charge as aggravated felony, or has enough time passed between the 2 previous convictions?
Your boyfriend is at risk He needs a lawyer.

Is there ever an exception to the rule of collateral attacking a previous DUI if you had a lawyer at the time?
Recently I received a 2nd DUI and want to try to collateral attack the 1st "guilty plea" DUI of 20yrs ago but was told since I had a lawyer at the time it was not an option. But due to the fact I showed up to court completely drunk, to where my lawyer advised me to not speak to the judge due to my intoxication, I am wondering if there can be a way to attack just the fact that I accepted a plea in such a state. Or is there anything I can do now 20yrs later to the lawyer still practicing for allowing me to do such a thing.
There is nothing you can do about your 20 year old DUI cnivuction.
This past Friday I was found guilty of my second dui. First one was 8 years ago and I got and cleared supervision. The SoS hasnt gotten the paperwork yet. Does it make any sense to hire an administrative lawyer to get the ball rolling and file for a hearing, or can nothing really be done until I get the revocation letter from the state? I've heard it can take anywhere from a short to long time to get it, so is it possible to get a jump on things?
Be completely prepared for your hearing. A continuance will not be granted if you do not have proper documentation.
my friend was convicted of a felony dui he did not have a license at the time so he was convicted of a felony we were wondering what processes he would need to take to get his license so he can get to work and pay off all his fines
You need to have a hearing with the Secretary of State. You will have to show that you have completed the treaty...
If my license is already revoked from other dui's , is it worth spending time/money trying to reinstate another dui supervision?
So a quick background of my situation... I've been arrested 3 times for dui. The first one(which is the one I'm asking the question about) received supervision and beat the summary suspension hearing, the second one was probation but did everything and has been closed, the 3rd one was found not guilty but didn't beat the summary suspension. So now, the first one the supervision has been ongoing mainly because of court and social services fees/fines. I did all the classes/treatment and swap, etc. I stopped going to court last year because lack of money and other things. They closed my case/forfeited my bond and now say I owe a certain amount ( which is less than the total court/ss fees I owed before). What will be the outcome if I just choose to pay the new fee? What would you suggest I do?
Pay all fees and look into the possibility of getting your license reinstated. For best results, you should hire an...
