I entered an Open Plea to Reckless Driving and got 12 Months of Court Supervision. I Plead Guilty to Reckless Driving Four Months after the Alleged Reckless Driving Incident. I got a DUI Eight Days after Pleading Guilty to the Reckless Driving. I was doing research on the Unified Code of Corrections just to make sure that I was eligible for Court Supervision on the DUI. I came across 730 ILCS 5/5-6-1(a), 730 ILCS 5/5-6-1(b), and 730 ILCS 5/5-6-1(b-1). Subsection (a) states that the Court shall impose a sentence of probation or conditional discharge unless the Court is of the opinion that 3 factors exist. Subsection (b) states the Court may impose a sentence of conditional discharge if the Court is of the opinion that neither a sentence of imprisonment or probation is appropriate.
