Drinking and driving in the state of Illinois can lead to serious consequences, including the loss of driving privileges, jail time, monetary fines, and a criminal record. At the Fotopoulos Law Office, we do not believe that a driving under the influence (DUI) arrest should haunt you for the rest of your life. We will fight aggressively for you and work to protect you from the life-altering consequences of a DUI conviction.DUI Charges in Illinois
Each state creates and enforces its own DUI laws and programs. Illinois has one of the strictest in the country. In fact, even on a first conviction, DUI offenders are at risk of losing their driving privileges. If there are any additional aggravating factors, such as having a minor in the car or an accident that results in the bodily harm or death of another, there may be additional penalties added. This applies, even for first-time offenders. Additional convictions, which look back over your entire driving record, also increase the weight of your consequences. By the third DUI arrest, you are looking at a felony charge. Upon your fourth conviction, your right to drive could be permanently suspended.
