In Illinois, does a seat belt citation violate court supervision for a speeding citation issued 2.5 months ago?

Champaign, IL |

In September I was ticketed in Massac County, IL for driving 82 mph in a 65 mph speed limit zone. I paid the fee for court supervision which lasts for 3 months. On Dec. 2, I was cited for not wearing my seat belt. Does the seat belt citation violate my supervision?

My seat belt citation was in Champaign County (pulled over in downtown Champaign by city officer).

  1. Seat belt citation resulted in a supervision per se is not a moving violation and therefore does not trigger violation as explained by a prior counsel.

  2. More infirmation is necessary to answer your question. The state or municipality that issued the first citation can under certain circumstances seek leave to file a violation of supervision. It is doubtful in your described case. Also, were any additional tickets given in the underlying case(the case that is the basis for the supervision)?

    Of course every answer is based on the question asked and requires a more complete context. This answer should not be relied upon to make a legal decision. Seek the advice of an experienced attorney before acting.
