Jul 28, 2020

Understanding the New Legislation

As an experienced law firm specializing in DUI cases, the Law Office of Stanley E. Robison, Jr aims to provide comprehensive information on the recent changes to DUI laws in Illinois. With the introduction of the fifth chance for repeat DUI offenders, it is important to understand the implications and how it could affect your case.

Penalties for Repeat DUI Offenders

Repeat DUI offenses can have severe consequences, not only for the individual but also for public safety. The new legislation reflects the state's commitment to address this issue with stricter penalties. Understanding the penalties and potential implications is crucial in navigating the legal process effectively.

1. License Suspensions

Repeat DUI offenders face longer license suspensions compared to those with a first-time offense. It is essential to be aware of the potential duration of license suspension and any possible avenues for minimizing the impact on your daily life.

2. Increased Fines

The fines for repeat DUI offenses have been significantly increased to deter individuals from engaging in such behavior. Knowing the financial impact is essential for managing your legal expenses and planning for any potential financial burdens.

3. Ignition Interlock Device

Under the new legislation, repeat DUI offenders may be required to install an ignition interlock device in their vehicles. Understanding the requirements, costs, and obligations associated with this device is crucial to ensure compliance with the law.
