  • If caught with APVP a synthetic drug form of bath salts and get felony charges of possession with intent can that be beat?

    Liam’s Answer

    You will need to discuss with our attorney the possibilities of beating the case, through a motion to suppress the search, attacking the warrant, if any, looking a the lab results, or your chances at trial. Those, along with the persons history and mitigation will affect a prosecutors decision to reduce the charge

  • Can a prosecutor file a nolle prosequi motion when a defendant is at large?

    Liam’s Answer

    The State can dismiss the charges at any time. The question seems to be will the State nolle the charges and the failure to appear coupled with the fact that they haven't yet seems to indicate no. the person will need to contact counsel to see what the best course of action is for answering the charges

    Liam’s Answer

    I believe that would relate to trial in absentia, meaning he person was advised that the trial could go on in their absence if they failed to appear for court.

  • I have a Illinois license and received an out of state DUI, what what is my best course of action?

    Liam’s Answer

    You have two issues. the summary suspension and the DUI. Illinois will revoke your license for a conviction in Indiana as they do not have supervision. You will need to fight the DUI in Indiana to try to avoid that. If you are not successful you will need to have a hearing with the Secretary of State in Illinois
