I was charged with a misdemeanor DUI in Will County, but I have felony probation in Cook County. Im wondering if they will find out or how long it would take for them to find out. And if they do find out will it violate my probation.
Cook county will find out and will most likely violate your probation. There's no way to predict when exactly but most...
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 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...
The bottle says use before feb 2015. I just want to make sure if they find anything in my system that I will be covered. The script and bottle have my name on it of course but it was refilled feb 2014. Thanks much!

Back in the early 90's I received a DUI that at court was dismissed and the disposition states SOL. I assumed that meant it disappeared from my abstract. But now 20+yrs later I see it is still there. Why is that? And can I get it removed?
The statutory summary suspension that accompanies a DUI case may show up, but the DUI shouldn't. If it does, you can...
I would want to apply for a RDP. I have 3 DUI on record that happened back in 2012 almost at the same time with a week and a month difference between each other. I have over gone all the treatments and aftercare. Also, two statutory summary suspensions were rescind, thus, i have only one in effect. Here's also a question: does the statutory summary suspension period start on the 45th day after the arrest or from the actual conviction date? If my summary suspension started in 2012 and I was convicted in 2014 and SSS was for three years then can i apply for an RDP? I have had an appointment with an officer in DMV wh told me that i'm eligible for a permit on 01/01/2015. I have a doubt. I do would need a lawyer to look at my record and, also, represent me for a formal hearing if I qualify
You are right to seek the services of a skilled DUI attorney. You should ask all questions of your attorney.
In 2011 arrested for Imp Leo, child abuse no harm and disturbing the peace. Served 110 days in county, violated in 2012 for reckless driving I believe and served 305 days in county, this past April probation was violated again for DUI which 24 mo supervision was awarded, he turned himself in to FL in September. Just received his prison sentence and was given 12 points instead of 6. It's states 12 points for a new felony. DUI is not a felony correct? Could his points have been miscalculated? Please help. Want him home for the holidays
The twelve points may not be entirely due to the DUI. Talk to his attorney to get a better breakdown of how the points...
