    Your attorney should subpoena all existing videos (station-house and squad videos). This should be done as soon as possible after arrest. Most videos, if they exist, are recycled after a certain period of time. If you have not already, consult with an attorney regarding the specifics of your case. More information on DUI defense in Illinois is available at the links below.

    You should contact a local attorney to discuss the specifics of your case, most of us offer free consultations. As the other posts mention, you may not be eligible for a public defender. As far as the work permit, as a first offender you are likely eligible for a MDDP which would allow you to drive 24/7 after the first 30 days of your suspension as long as you have a BAIID device installed on your vehicle. Of course, we don't know whether there is a basis to challenge the suspension entirely....

    A conviction for domestic battery cannot be expunged or sealed, you would need to file a petition for clemency. You may be eligible for certificate of good conduct if you believe it would help in securing employment. Although it will not prevent an employer from seeing your criminal record, employers are sometimes more likely to hire you if you possess this document.

    Yes, you should hire a lawyer - the process is complex and denial rates are high. Your other questions are too difficult to answer without more information. You must consult an attorney who concentrates in administrative hearings before the Illinois Secretary of State to review your record, discuss specifics, and then quote you a fee. Many of us offer free consultations. More specific information on the Secretary of State hearing process is available at the links provided below.

    You will likely be able to achieve a dismissal if you appear on the assigned date and show proof of compliance (renewed registration). You should simply go to court on the assigned date. In Lake County, entering a pre- court plea of not guilty will result in a trial date set about a month after the originally assigned date and is of little value under these specific circumstances. You cannot appear on an earlier date unless the specific city or village has an earlier assigned date and you...

    If you haven't already retained this attorney, your best bet is to find another competent attorney to represent you on your court date (or have your attorney give you instructions on requesting a continuance). You are likely charged with misdemeanor retail theft and the matter must be handled properly especially considering your criminal history. More information on retail theft is available at the links below.

    As other attorneys here have explained, you need to consult a DUI attorney to discuss your case. Many of us offer free consultations. Yes, it is possible to get your license back, but the specifics are too complex to answer in this forum (on a basic level, the year summary suspension has to be rescinded and you must avoid a conviction on the DUI charge). More information on DUI defense is available at the links below.

    Wait until the website is back up and review the video. If the alleged conduct is not visible, challenge the citation. If it is visible, unfortunately, the best bet is to pay the ticket. Most photo enforced tickets are treated like parking tickets (i.e. fine only).

    A first offense for speeding in a school zone carries a minimum $150 fine (plus $50 toward the school district) AND mandatory court costs. You cannot receive supervision for this offense, only a conviction if you plead guilty or you are found guilty after trial. Your best bet is to speak with an attorney, many of us offer free consultations. It may be possible to work out an amendment to the charge to avoid the minimum mandatory penalties and keep the offense off of your record. In a...

    You may not seal a conviction for aggravated battery. However, you may petition the Governor for clemency. More information can be found at the links below.
