    Answered . It's not really clear what you're asking. It certainly sounds as if you need an attorney, especially if the kids were in the car when you got the DUI. Best of luck.

    Answered . You need to consult with and hire an experienced local DUI attorney. Receiving a DUI under "routine" circumstances is serious enough. Having your children in the car at the time is a significant aggravating factor. You did not mention what your BAC was, nor what drugs you had on you or in your system, but each of those factors will have an impact on your sentence as well, if you are convicted.

    I am licensed to practice criminal and DUI law in VA, not IL. As such, I may be unaware of certain state laws; and therefore, my response may be irrelevant. Please use my response for informational purposes only.

    Good luck.
