    The MDDP Permit can only be obtained directly throught the Illinois Secretary of State. The court and Public Defender have nothing to do with it. Within a month of your arrest you should receive a letter from the SOS with information about your eligibility for an RDP in the MDDP program

    You must determine whether you received Court Supervision or a conviction. If you got Court Supervision for a retail theft you have to wait five years from the end of the Supervision period to file an expungment. If it is a conviction, then you are not eligible for expungment. It will remain on your record forever in that situation. If you received Supervision it will remain on your record until it is expunged.

    ordinarily Supervision does not result in a conviction or a suspension. However with a CDL holder any speed over 15 miles over results in an automatic conviction. Even if the Judge or prosecutor offers you supervision, when it is sent by the Court Clerk to the Illinois Secretary of State it is logged in as a conviction for CDL holders. You should hire an attorney in that area to file a Motion to Vacate and try to get the ticket(s) amended to under 15 miles under and then the Supervision will not be reported as a conviction.

    David’s Answer

    Yes, Supervision will show up on a background check as long as it is not expunged. If you have no prior or subsequent convictions than you can expunge most misdemeanor Supervision charges two years after the Supervision period ends. It is five years for a retail theft charge.
