I was parked outside my apartment complex and woke up the next morning with my car ticketed for not have a city sticker.
This is not a moving violation, so unfortunately the officer can issue citations on vehicles when they have access to outdoor parking spaces. They are enforcing their city sticker requirements for Waukegan residents. My advice would be to purchase the ticket to avoid this from happening in the future and will be less expensive for you in the long run.See question
In 2015 I had a bad drug habit. Did a lot of stupid things. In February, I was arrested for retail theft of over $300 @ wal mart. I was put on 2nd chance probation for 2 years with fines & community service hours. My prob. will be up in mid-May & ...
Although an ordinance violation is not a criminal offense, it still carries the risk of violating the probation because it involves police contact AND it involves the same conduct alleged from your 2015 case. Additional questions would be whether they fingerprinted and photographed you at the station - or if they just wrote the citation and gave you a payment deadline without a formal arrest. If you were formally arrested, it enhances your chance of a violation being filed since there will be an arrest record. if no formal arrest took place, the risk of a violation being filed is minimized (but not eliminated). I suggest hiring a lawyer.See question
I'm being represented by the State of Illinois in a reckless homicide case (it was a semi-truck pile-up that led to five deaths). The suspect behind the accident has been in jail awaiting trial for the past two and a half years. He is likely to fi...
Victim Impact Statements are meant to describe to the court (at sentencing) how this incident has impacted you and/or your family's lives. The offender's background, feelings, past, etc. are not relevant to your statement. They are relevant at sentencing...but that is for the Defendant's lawyer (and possibly him personally) to address and for the Judge to consider at the time of sentencing. Concentrate on your own experiences and that will satisfy the prosecutor's request of you. Also, if you have been injured - hopefully you have sought counsel to seek damages on your behalf if you haven't done so already.See question
I was charged with a felony at 14 years old of residential burglary .I did one month and was released . I am now 25 about to be 26 and have not had anything on my record since I was 14.
I agree...to make sure there are no problems, having the Juvenile record expunged should eliminate potential problems obtaining the FOID. Juvenile records are not public...but it is still a good idea to seek out an expungement as a precautionary step before applying for the FOID.See question
My husband was driving on revoke license while under the influence crash the truck and received two class 2 felony DUIs what's next
Class 2 felony DUIs range from 3-7 years in the IL Dept. of Corrections. If this is a 3rd offense, it may be probationable...but if it is a 4th DUI allegation (and a plea or finding of guilty is entered) then the offense is not probationable and will be a 3-year minimum (7 year maximum) IDOC sentence. I recommend hiring an attorney immediately. Since I concentrate in this area of law, I know how serious these cases are and have helped many clients through these difficult cases. Do your homework and hire a good lawyer.See question
9/25 at 9:45pm I was ticketed for no city sticker. I never received the ticket on my vehicle, so I never knew I was given this violation. On 9/26 9:13pm an actual ticket for the exact same thing was on my vehicle. I went online to look up the tick...
Yes - although they are within 24 hours, they are on separate dates & the violations can be upheld. You must obtain the sticker to avoid future problems...it will be cheaper in the long run.See question
I was driving down a secondary road in the city limits of Cairo, when I was pulled over for speeding. Along the entire length of that road, there are no speed signs posted. Also, there are no signs posted when entering the city that state there is...
If you have a clean record, there is a decent chance that even if you lost the trial, you would receive Court Supervision if the alleged speed isn't too much over the posted speed limit. However, if you have too many priors or if you are alleged to be going considerably over the speed limit the officer alleges controlled that road, you're probably better off negotiating an agreed disposition on the ticket.See question
I Been to this casino multiple times and one day i went by myself and i sat down for 5 minutes playing blackjack and the security comes up to me and asks me if i am with anybody? i say no and then they ask for me to come with them.. i had a few dr...
It is doubtful that the "damages" in this case woul warrant a viable civil lawsuit against the casino. Unless you can prove that their case of mistaken identity was completely unreasonable and completely without justification. You should also review your memory before you were confronted to determine if any conduct engaged in by you while intoxicated could have been construed as reckless or disorderly.See question
I got a speeding ticket recently. The officer said I was going 45 in a 35. I said "ok I was going downhill" I handed him my Alaskan registration that has my name on it and address. And my Alaskan drivers license, my drivers license does have a mos...
The incorrect information is not a fatal defect on the traffic citation, but may have some impact upon the credibility of the Officer should this case proceed to trial. Best of luck to you!!See question
I was given the option to go to traffic safety school if I go do I have to pay the fine.
That code is definitely a City of Chicago "Ordinance Violation" which means it was not written under the IL Vehicle Code. Generally, your eligible for Supervision on minor charges like this with a fine only...doubtful you'd have to complete Traffic Safety School unless you have numerous traffic infractions in the last 12 months.See question
