Major Consequences of DUI Conviction – Illinois DUI Defense Lawyer
One of the major consequences of being convicted for DUI is that it remains a permanent part of your driving record. It cannot be expunged. You may also lose your job, your car, and your driver’s license permanently, depending on the circumstances surrounding your DUI conviction.
A DUI offender must also meet the requirements of the Secretary of State’s Department of Administrative Hearings in order to obtain a restricted driver’s permit. High-risk car insurance will need to be carried by a DUI offender for at least 3 years, and Illinois State law may insist a DUI offender have a BAIID (Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device) installed in their car.
It is important that everyone understands the serious consequences of DUI conviction. Our law firm knows how to protect an individual’s rights if they have been pulled over by the police and arrested for DUI. What matters the most is not going to jail for DUI offenses.
