Schiller Park IL 3rd Offense DUI Lawyer

Repeat and Felony DUI Attorney Rolling Meadows, IL

A third DUI offense is considered aggravated DUI in the state of Illinois and is classified as a Class 2 Felony. If you are convicted of a 3rd DUI offense, the following penalties will apply:

  • Statutory Summary Suspension of driving privileges for 1 year if you fail chemical testing.
  • Statutory Summary Suspension of driving privileges for 3 years if you refuse to submit to chemical testing.
  • If your BAC level was .16 or higher, you face mandatory imprisonment of 90 days, along with a minimum fine of $2,500.
  • If you were driving the car with a child under the age of 16, you will receive a mandatory fine of $25,000 and will need to complete 25 days of community service in a program benefitting children.

Recent changes to Illinois law could allow you to continue driving during your Statutory Summary Suspension by having a breath-alcohol ignition interlock device (BAIID) on your vehicle. To ensure your rights are fully protected, it is imperative you seek legal counsel immediately if you have been charged and arrested for DUI 3rd offense. The State’s Attorney’s Office will be doing everything it can to convict you.
