Full Driving Records to Become Available to Cook County Prosecutors

Driver’s charged with traffic offenses in Cook County should be aware of a new court initiative. Beginning in September, Cook County will provide comprehensive Secretary of State data to prosecutors on minor traffic court calls. Previously, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office used recidivism sheets which only provided data from an offender’s Cook County county court record.

The new recidivism sheets will contain an offender’s Illinois Secretary of State driving record which includes out-of-county and potentially out-of-state traffic violations. The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office already has full Secretary of State data for major traffic court calls (i.e. DUI, driving on suspended license, etc.). Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County Timothy Evans reportedly facilitated an agreement between representatives of the Cook County Clerk of the Circuit Court and the Illinois Secretary of State.

Thanks again. G.B.

I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
