DUI, Waukegan Courthouse Lake County
All of the DUI arrests made in Lake County are prosecuted at this criminal court complex, which is 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 have been 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 misdemeanor offenses). The Waukegan DUI defense attorneys at The Davis Law Group, P.C. have decades of experience working with the local prosecutors and Assistant State’s Attorneys that prosecute cases at this courthouse.
