DUI Consequences

A DUI conviction or guilty plea in Illinois can come with many significant consequences. 

On a personal level you may experience significant financial expenses (fines, legal fees, increased insurance premiums), restrictions on your freedom (such as probation or jail time), impacts to your employment opportunities, and of course social stigma and personal relationship strain.

From a legal standpoint the penalties in Illinois can be strict and can include:

  • license suspension or revocation
  • Fines and legal fees
  • Potential jail time
  • Mandatory drug/alcohol education or treatment programs
