- Q. Willl my license get suspended? Will it go on a criminal record ? What is a individual bond.
- A: Speeding 26-34 over the limit is a Class B misdemeanor. If convicted, it will go on your public record. The $1,500 is an I-bond, no need to worry about that amount specifically unless you fail to show up in court. However, you are technically facing a maximum $1,500 fine and up to 6 months in jail on the offense. Additionally, if convicted, you are facing a license suspension. It only takes two tickets within 2 years when you are under the age of 21. Many of these more serious consequences can likely be avoided, but you will want to find proper legal representation.
- Q. The indiv bond says 1500$ on it. Do I have to pay it. What happens when I go t court.
- A: Speeding 26-34 over the limit is a Class B misdemeanor. The $1,500 is an I-bond, no need to worry about that amount specifically unless you fail to show up in court. However, you are technically facing a maximum $1,500 fine and up to 6 months in jail on the offense. Additionally, if convicted, you are facing a license suspension. It only takes two tickets within 2 years when you are under the age of 21. Many of these more serious consequences can likely be avoided, but you will want to find proper legal representation.
- Q. Speeding 26-34 mph above is a criminal offenses need to know what is gonna happen in court. Will I have to pay court fee
- A: Speeding 26-34 over the limit is a Class B misdemeanor. The $1,500 is an I-bond, no need to worry about that amount specifically unless you fail to show up in court - your case may last a couple of court dates - typically two (first for your attorney to work out an agreement with the State and the second to show proof that you complied with the terms of that agreement). You are technically facing a maximum $1,500 fine and up to 6 months in jail on the offense. Additionally, if convicted, you are facing a license suspension. It only takes two moving violation convictions within 2 years when you are under the age of 21. Many of these more serious consequences (i.e. jail time) can likely be avoided, but you will want to find proper legal representation. Yes, community service, fines and traffic school are all possible. These details need to be worked out through negotiation with the prosecutor. Your attorney will handle that on your behalf.
- Q. What usually happens when your found guilty of driving on a suspended license due to a judgment? What's the sentencing?
- A: As mentioned, this offense is typically charged a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a MAXIMUM 12 months in jail and $2,500 fine plus court costs. You may just need to pay the fine, but if it was reported to the Secretary of State as a failure to appear, you will need to file a motion and go to court to resolve the case as part of the process of reinstating your license. The conviction would also delay the process of reinstating your license by extending your current suspension period. The wise choice is to find an attorney to re-open the matter and guide you through the process of resolving the case properly.
- Q. I forgot to affix my license plate sticker and got a ticket. If I provide proof can I contest the ticket?
- A: It would be best to appear in person at a hearing and provide proof. They can still hold you liable under the Chicago Municipal Code for failing to display the sticker but you have a much better chance by going to court and presenting the documentation in person.
- Q. I got a 2 tickets for driving on expired plates and speeding 15-20 over posted speed limit.
- A: Renew your registration and bring proof to court. That ticket will likely be dismissed if you show compliance. You are not currently liable for those amounts as long as you show up to court.
- Q. Did I need permission to move out of state with an ongoing traffic court case?
- A: If it is a petty traffic offense permission is not required. If it is a criminal traffic offense, your bond will indicate the conditions that you are under.
- Q. What's the worst possible penalty for a first time DUI in IL?
- A: Most first time DUI offenses are charged as a Class A misdemeanor - maximum 12 months in jail and a $2500 fine (but may be upgraded to a felony offense if one of a number of aggravating factors are present). All sentences can require an alcohol/drug evaluation, treatment, attendance at a victim impact panel and court costs. Additional penalties such as community service may be imposed depending on certain factors as well. A 6 or 12 month license suspension will be imposed depending on whether you took and failed or refused the evidentiary breath test. A conviction for DUI will result in a one year license revocation independent of the license revocation. As you can see, there are MANY possibilities. An attorney will be able to help navigate the process, minimize the penalties and work to avoid a conviction through trial or negotiation.
- Q. What types of steps are police officers allowed to take to confirm someone has been driving under the influence?
- A: Please be more specific so we can try to provide the information you need. Of course, police will take a variety of steps to gather evidence of DUI including field sobriety tests and a breath test.
