Marion Law

I had only had a few sips of a drink at a friends house about a couple hours before that and felt completely fine to drive. At the scene, I blew a .094, and then I blew a .081 at the station. This is my first time getting in trouble for under aged drinking or receiving any traffic ticket. I know of some friends who have gotten DUI and illegal consumption tickets dropped by taking alcohol or driving classes so I didn't know if my tickets could be dropped in a similar manner, especially with these being my very first offenses.
The ZT goes on your record in 46 days and you had more than a few sips if you blew .094. That's high enough to be...
Background is clean with no prior arrests, but 1 speeding and 1 seat-belt ticket. Refused to take PBT (portable breathalyser test) then was offered sobriety test on dotted line into on-coming traffic (told officer I would prefer not to do it into on-coming traffic). Placed into squad car, refused PBT again. Transported to jail, refused again, processed and placed into holding. Was never read Miranda Rights (are they just implied with a DUI refusal?) Blew 0.00 when allowed to blow a few hours later after bail was posted.
You really should retain an attorney in IL to help you through this -- there are not only criminal consequences, but...
I was arrested for "leaving the scene of an accident" back in 2005, at this time I was also written up for possession of cannabis. Court was finally done in 2007, which shows on my driving abstract a 3 year revocation. It now seems that An underage drinking ticket (from almost 10 years ago), Is what is keeping the sos from overturning the revocation. I have since went to treatment and got an "investigative evaluation" I'm now wondering if I was too honest with the evaluator, as there is a lot of use history the sos would otherwise not know. before i went to the treatment provider, i had an informal hearing and was advised that if sent off to Springfield depending on who reviewed it, I may get my license back, or I may get denied, and if denied it would be 3 mos more, he didn't send it off.
Go speak with an attorney who is experienced in SOS hearings and drivers license reinstatements.
