Illinois DUI Defense Attorneys Advocating for You in Woodstock

Being arrested for DUI builds two different types of cases: A criminal case and a civil case. From the time you are charged and arrested for a DUI offense in Illinois, the statutory summary suspension on your driving privileges becomes effective 46 days after the DUI arrest. This action is taken by the Secretary of State and only pertains to the civil side of your case.

The criminal side of a DUI case deals with the penalties and how the DUI crime is classified. A first time DUI offense will most likely be categorized as a Class A misdemeanor with the potential penalties of spending one year in jail and a maximum fine of $2500.
