Penalties for DUI in Illinois

Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes (625 ILCS 5/11-501), you could face immediate arrest for driving with a blood alcohol content level (BAC) of .08 or greater. Even if your BAC is below the legal limit, you could still be charged with DUI if law enforcement suspects you are under the influence of any amount of alcohol, drugs, or over-the-counter and prescription medication.

In these situations, your first call should be to Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C. Our experienced Joliet DUI attorneys can immediately begin taking actions to help you avoid the serious repercussions a DUI can have on every area of your life. The 2018 Illinois DUI Fact Book lists the following as among the penalties you could be facing:

  • For a first offense: Suspension of driver’s license for a year, fines up to $1,000, and up to 100 hours of community service;
  • For a second offense: Suspension of driving privileges for five years, fines up to $5,000, and a potential mandatory jail sentence of five days and up to 240 hours community service;
  • For a third or fourth offense: As an aggravated DUI, these are considered felony charges. In addition to license revocation, you could be facing mandatory imprisonment of 90 days or more, and fines up to $25,000.

A DUI can also result in you being fired and can prevent you from obtaining a job in your chosen career field while making it difficult to provide for yourself and your family members. To protect yourself, you need an experienced Joliet DUI attorney on your case.
