What happens after a DUI in Illinois?

Arrests for DUI happen and they can happen to anyone. Picture this: You’re at your friend’s party across town. You have a couple drinks, thinking you’re being responsible because you don’t feel more than a light buzz. The night goes on… you see it’s getting late, so you head home. That’s when it happens. The red and blue lights pull up in your rear view mirror and your heart pounds. You know you’re in trouble, but you don’t know how bad it will be. What comes next? How will this one night change the rest of your life? Researched by James J. Feliksik. JD Candidate January 2017.
