Illinois DUI Penalties

The legal limit for DUI is .08% but you can be arrested for having a BAC as low as .05%, and penalties for BAC above .16% are especially harsh.

License suspension for a DUI is also known as Statutory Summary Suspension. After your arrest, your license is automatically suspended for 180 days. The suspension starts on the 46th day following your arrest, giving you time to contest the suspension and charge. A Knox County DUI lawyer can help you fight the suspension and retain your driving privileges. If you do not contest the suspension by the 46th day, you lose your ability to contest the suspension and you will lose your license! Do not ignore the deadlines, to get the best possible outcome you need to be proactive against DUI charges. Attorney Liam Dixon will meet deadlines and keep you informed of important dates regarding your charges. Reinstatement of your license costs $250 if it is your first suspension. If you continue to drive while your license is suspended, you could be charged with a misdemeanor, fined over $2,000, and maybe even be sentenced to jail.

A first DUI conviction can be fined up to $2,500, and fines and penalties increase if your BAC was above .16% or if you had a minor in the vehicle. It is possible to reduce your charges, or have them dismissed completely. Attorney Liam Dixon will fight for the lowest possible fines, probation in lieu of jail, reduction from DUI to reckless driving, and seek out the most leniency in regards to your driving privileges. If he cannot get your case outright dismissed, he will do everything to minimize the penalties as much as possible.
