Things You Need to Know About DUI Charges in Illinois
All states have a different manner of handling the crime of DUI. Illinois DUI is governed by its own unique rules that are similar to other states but yet specific to Illinois. To go along with that, every county, district, city, and township has their own judicial views and handles the crime accordingly.
We seek to be transparent and forthcoming about some of the more complicated aspects of your charges.
The following are some things we think everyone should know about an Illinois DUI:
- Only 1st time DUI offenders are eligible for judicial driving permits.
- Those arrested for DUI do not have the right to consult their attorney before deciding to submit to a blood test.
- If your blood alcohol level is between .05 and .08 you can still be charged with a DUI.
- Refusal of a blood alcohol test triggers an automatic driver’s license suspension.
