I was driving in extreme left lane on I-88 and was speeding 26 mph over. What will happen in court and what preparations is required ? I never had supervision before but had a minor accident a week ago.
Speeding 26-34 mph over the limit is a Class B Misdemeanor. Technically, this type of criminal offense is punishable by a maximum $1,500 fine and up to 6 months in jail. Although a penalty this severe is unlikely, an attorney can help ensure that you receive the best possible result (i.e. a clean record). Best of luck.See question
I AM CDL DRIVER AND THAT TICKET EFFECT MY DRIVER LICENSE ,I WOULD LIKE TO ASK JUDGE TO VACATE/AMEND ,A TICKET ,DO I NEED A ATTORNEY. FOR THIS MATTER
As a CDL holder, it would certainly be in your best interest to hire an attorney to handle this matter. The prosecutor would need to agree to amend the offense to a non-moving violation to prevent it from appearing on your public driving record if it is not dismissed. Court supervision will not accomplish this goal.See question

If you are issued a ticket during the period of court supervision, a violation can be filed and a conviction can be entered. This isn't very common in Chicago on petty traffic cases. You will not be arrested solely based on the fact that you are on supervision. Contact your attorney to ensure the situation is handled properly. While there are no guarantees, technically, you are eligible to receive supervision twice within 12 months.See question
I got pulled over for speeding and was given court supervision, I am under 21 and the judge gave me classes online to do. I recently got pulled over for speeding again but In a different county, does this affect the outcome of court supervision? ...
A violation of your first supervision could be filed and a conviction could be entered. It's difficult to know whether this will happen. Depends on a number of factors. Your best bet is to avoid a conviction on the new offense and protect your license. You are eligible for (but not entitled to) two orders of court supervision within a 12 month period. In the alternative, based on your age, two convictions within 24 months would suspend your driver's license. Contact an attorney regarding your new ticket. Best of luck.See question
An Oak Brook, Illinois, police officer ticketed me for a violation of "Scotts Law" on Rt 83, saying that I had not pulled over into the left hand lane, when I had slowed down and pulled over in my lane as far as I safely could in traffic when I sa...
In order to avoid the minimum mandatory fines and court costs, the ticket would need to be amended or dismissed. A Scott's Law violation can be fined from $100-$1000. Of course, the higher range of fines is reserved for those with a history of traffic violations. Often, an attorney can negotiate an agreement that would keep the fines low and prevent the offense from appearing on your public record, effecting your insurance, or counting toward a license suspension. Due to the nature of the offense, prosecutors and judges take these cases seriously. Speak directly to an attorney to discuss the situation.See question

Under current Illinois law, a conviction for aggravated domestic battery cannot be expunged or sealed. You would also be ineligible for a Certificate of Eligibility for Sealing, a Certificate of Good Conduct, or a Certificate of Relief from Disabilities.
A petition for clemency is likely your only option, a very difficult task, even more so with a case this recent. You can discuss this option directly with an attorney that handles these petitions to see if it's worth a shot.See question
If I got arrested for a felony but the case got dismissed is that the reason why I'm not getting a call back from job places? Like is it on my record?
Your prior arrest could be the reason, but we can't say for sure. It may be worth filing a petition to expunge the arrest. Although the case was dismissed the arrest records still exist. Expungement is not automatic.See question

If, as you stated, you have never received a ticket, this offense will not cause a suspension or revocation of your driver's license on its own even if you are convicted. However, it is still a criminal charge and needs to be handled properly. A reduction of the offense depends on a number of factors. Contact a local traffic/criminal attorney directly to discuss your case.See question
