The consequences of drinking and driving are particularly harsh in the state of Illinois. As such, it is important that Illinois practitioners are equipped with a comprehensive understanding of the complicated Illinois DUI laws and the ways in which these laws may affect their clients. In this Illinois-specific course, DUI attorney Christopher Klis examines the ins and out of Illinois DUI law, with specific attention to the penalties imposed against 1st, 2nd, and 3rd time offenders. Beginning with a history of DUI law in Illinois, Mr. Klis dissects the major DUI laws and discusses their applicability to offenders depending on the driver’s age, blood alcohol content, passengers, and prior convictions. With reference to three seminal Illinois cases, Mr. Klis examines the jail sentences, fines and costs associated with aggravated DUI violations and sheds light on the penalties for driving with a suspended or revoked license. Mr. Klis concludes this informative presentation by providing practice tips for attorneys defending clients against DUI charges, and endows Illinois practitioners will all the information necessary to represent their clients in future DUI cases.
