DUI Defense Case Study – DuPage County, Illinois
Below is an overview of the case of a client who was charged with their second offense of Driving Under the Influence in DuPage County. Our DUI defense attorneys represented this client at the Wheaton Courthouse located at 505 North County Farm Road.
Allegations against our Client: Our 33-year-old client was finishing graduate school and pursuing a professional license when he was arrested by an Illinois State Police officer for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol. The officer allegedly observed our client speeding in excess of 100 miles per hour and swerving. After being placed under arrest for DUI, our client submitted to a breath test which indicated a BAC of .15, just under twice the legal limit of .08.
Outcome: Due to his prior DUI offense, our client was no longer eligible to receive a sentence of court supervision. The risk of trial was high, especially given the fact that a conviction would have resulted in the revocation of his Illinois driver’s license. This alone posed serious problems for his ability to obtain his graduate degree and professional license. Only a finding of not guilty after trial or an amendment of the charge to reckless driving would prevent a DUI conviction and a driver’s license revocation.
Our attorneys thoroughly evaluated the evidence and all methods of defense. After extensive negotiations with the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office, our defense attorneys were able to secure an agreement to rescind the Statutory Summary Suspension entered against our client’s driving privileges along with an amendment of the DUI charge to Reckless Driving. All remaining charges were dismissed.
