It is difficult to provide a definitive answer to your question.
These matters are typically fact driven. If the matter were litigated in a motion to suppress, I have to believe the officer would have at least a slightly different version of events. This is not to suggest that either you or the officer are misstating the matter, but rather that witnesses typically offer divergent testimony in these cases.
The big question for me is the prior stop on the marijuana matter. Was there an...
Your son needs to consult with a criminal defense attorney...now.
A defendant cannot be sentenced to prison in Illinois on misdemeanor charges. However, your question suggests your son has had multiple contacts with the police. Are you certain he has not been charged with a felony? Felonies are punishable with terms in the penitentiary. An attorney will likely be able to check on outstanding warrants for your son rather quickly.
Frankly, it sounds like your son has anger control...
You should speak with your attorney immediately. If you are the plaintiff, the complaint must be filed within the applicable limitations period. However, you seem to be assuming the suit was filed twp days late. That may, or may not, be the case. Statutes of limitation can be extended under certain circumstances. Speak with your lawyer about this matter.
First and foremost, as you are asking about a Rule 402 conference you are likely represented by counsel. Your questions should be put to your attorney. Close communication between counsel and client is crucial to successful settlement negotiations in any matter.
In my experience, a Rule 402 conference could result in the state offering a lesser plea agreement, but this is far from guaranteed. Conversly, the court could indicate a refusal to accept a proposed plea agreement. Yet again, a...

First and foremost, you need to consult with an attorney now.
The passage of time prior to filing suit is not your friend in medical malpractice (or any plaintiff's) matter. At some point, you will be barred by a statute of limitations from filing a lawsuit.
Your attorney will need time to obtain pertinent records and have those records reviewed by a physician practicing in the same area of medicine as any physician named as a defendant. This is an absolute requirement in Illinois...
Based upon the facts as described, you will have to file a lawsuit against the driver who cut you off. That driver's insurance company is under no obligation to pay your damages absent a judgment entered by a court. The police report itself does not compel the insurance company to pay for your repairs, even if the other driver was ticketed.
Of course, it is always possible that the other driver's insurance company will offer to settle with you at some point during the litigation process,...
The short answer is yes, you could go to jail.
Burglary is a felony offense in Illinois. If you are charged as an adult, the potential penitentiary sentence would be from three to seven years. Probation (with or without jail time) is also a possible sentence.
If you do not yet have an attorney, you should retain counsel at once. If you are represented by an attorney, you should be discussing your case, and the potential sentences relating to same, with your lawyer.
Generally speaking, it is possible for the case to be reopened. However, more facts are needed in order to answer this question with any particularity. I am available in Waukegan at 847 732 5986 for consultation.
You can file a claim. You should consult with an attorney experienced in personal injury law as soon as possible. The passage of time (a statute of limitations) will at some point preclude you from proceeding with a claim or lawsuit. It is never a good idea to delay speaking with an attorney in such a matter.
Speak with an attorney of your choice prior to doing anything else with regard to this matter.
