DUI, Waukegan Courthouse Lake County
All of the DUI arrests made in Lake County, Illinois are prosecuted in the main criminal court complex located at 18 N. County Street in Waukegan, Illinois. This includes both misdemeanor and felony driving under the influence charges for all arrests made throughout the numerous cities, villages, and municipalities in Lake County. These DUI arrests are made by the various local police departments, the Illinois State Police, and the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
A large percentage of misdemeanor DUI charges are prosecuted by Village Prosecutors instead of the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office. Village Prosecutors are private attorneys that practice frequently within Lake County and have contracted to prosecute first and second offender DUI charges (as well as other traffic infractions including ordinance violations, petty offenses, and other non-DUI related misdemeanors). Village Prosecutors handle cases in a similar fashion as the State’s Attorney’s Office, but are not restricted by the same policies and directives as the Assistant State’s Attorneys. The DUI defense attorneys at The Davis Law Group, P.C. have decades of experience working with the various local prosecutors and Assistant State’s Attorneys that prosecute cases in the Waukegan Courthouse.
