Court Supervision in Illinois DUI Cases

March 16th, 2012 at 3:45 am

According to the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office, first-time DUI offenders in Illinois are often required to complete a period of court supervision. If a court sentences you to complete court supervision, you will be required to comply with court-ordered terms for a specified period of time. While the terms of court supervision can vary from one case to the next, and may also differ depending on which Illinois state court is handling your DUI case, most court supervision orders share some common aspects.

For instance, you could be required to attend counseling or drug and alcohol education meetings, or take part in a program like Alcoholics Anonymous. It is also likely that the court will order you to pay a fine, and possibly other costs related to your DUI charge. The judge hearing your case also has the option of ordering you to complete a specified number of community service hours, especially if your blood alcohol content was well above the legal limit of .08 at the time of your DUI. Finally, a court supervision order could require you to participate in other types of alcohol education events, for example, a victim impact panel.

In addition to court supervision, a first DUI conviction can also result in serious consequences, including a criminal record that you could be required to be disclosed to future employers.
