The laws and penalties for Illinois DUI arrests change from year to year, often with increases in the severity of punishments, fines, counseling, and court costs. An Illinois DUI Lawyer must be careful to ensure that the client is sentenced under the proper provisions. For example, a person arrested for an Illinois DUI in 2008, but not sentenced until the ear 2010, can choose to be sentenced under the law at the time of arrest OR sentencing, whichever is most lenient.

Sentencing guidelines in Illinoia are strict. Possession of less than 10 grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor, but most drug charges are felonies and result in substantial fines and jail time.
And penalties DOUBLE if the drug possession or sale is within 1,500 feet of a school, church, public park, or a movie theater (or if a firearm is in possession at the time of a drug arrest).
Even a misdemeanor conviction for possession on your criminal record and can be a lifetime source of embarrasment and rejection.
The consequences for minors are even more severe. If your child is convicted of a drug charge, he or she will not be able to obtain any government student aid, loans, or grants for one year after a first conviction or two years for a second conviction.
