Contact an attorney who practices in Kankakee (or wherever the ticket was written). I used to live there, and most defense attorneys offer free consultations. They can give you an idea of the charges you are facing and the potential consequences.

A complaint is the formal method of charging any case. A DUI case may be brought either through a State's Attorney filing a complaint or by an officer writing a ticket. If the case is going to be upgraded, generally the State's Attorney will file a complaint that supersedes the ticket written by the officer.

Most of the attorneys here can help a first-time DUI offender looking for court supervision. You should contact one of them, or seek out somebody you feel comfortable dealing with. As someone else mentioned, most will offer free consultations and can give you a good idea of what to expect throughout the process.

You should speak immediately to an attorney. A broken leg may cause the prosecutor to charge the DUI as a felony, but you'll need representation either way.

On a misdemeanor driving suspended charge the maximum penalty is 364 days in the county jail. However, depending on his history, he may be charged with felony driving suspended, which could carry a prison term. The length of that term would depend on his driving record and criminal history. It sounds like your husband may have an issue with a parole violation as well, which is a separate issue from the driving suspended charge.
