Illinois Laws And Penalties For DUI Cases

Illinois is a leading state when it comes to cracking down on drunk drivers. The laws regulating DUI convictions in Illinois are harsh. Even a first-offense conviction could have a profound impact on your life. A DUI conviction can result in the following consequences:

  • The suspension or revocation of your driver’s license
  • Excessive fines
  • Participation in substance abuse rehabilitation programs
  • Community service requirements
  • Jail time
  • Forfeiture of your vehicle

The social costs are also high. Relationships are often affected, and the damage to your reputation could make it difficult to advance in your career.

If you already have a DUI on your record and you are arrested for a subsequent drunk driving crime, prosecutors can charge you with an aggravated DUI. Aggravated DUI crimes bring additional consequences and penalties.

With so much at stake, it is worth it to put forth your best possible defense. Criminal defense attorney Sather is an aggressive advocate and will customize a strategy designed to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.

Challenging A DUI Charge In Court

Because mistakes happen and technology is not perfect, there is almost always something to challenge in court. By examining the criminal complaint, breaking down the breathalyzer test results and challenging field sobriety tests, attorney Sather often finds irregularities and uncovers errors by the arresting officer. For more than two decades, he has found ways to successfully challenge the state’s evidence. Successfully challenging the state’s evidence can reduce penalties and sometimes even get the charges thrown out of court.

Challenging A Suspension: Time Is Of The Essence

If you are facing DUI charges, you need to act quickly to secure representation and assistance. For example, an experienced DUI defense lawyer can help you challenge the statutory summary suspension of your driver’s license. If you wish to challenge your driver’s license suspension, there is limited time to file a written request (petition to rescind) with the court.
