TRAFFiC ILLINOIS I recieved a driving with no insurance ticket

Quincy, IL |

I requested supervision and gave the prosecutor my driving abstract which shows no prior insurance violations. The prosecutor says I'm ineligable for supervision because she looked at our county's court records and it shows I recieved a 1993 no insurance ticket and pled guilty and convicted. Is this true? A 20 year old ticket?

  1. The prosecution will always run their own driving history. Is it true? Yes. The prosecution has considered your 20 year old ticket. If you wish to see if another outcome is available, you probably need to hire an attorney.


  2. In many states violations "fall off" your record in a few years. In Illinois all violations are on your record for life.


  3. The prosecutor is wrong. You are eligible for supervision for no insurance so long as you have not had a no insurance citation in the past five years. The statute is 730 ILCS 5-6-1(g)(1). Here is a link to the statute.
