Lake Forest Woman Avoids Jail Sentence in DUI Case

June 2nd, 2012 at 9:21 am

According to the Naperville Sun, 39-year-old Karuna Talwar of Lake Forest has pleaded guilty to a charge of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in the DuPage County Circuit Court. Talwar is the founder of Pay it Forward Foundation of Gurnee, IL, a local charitable foundation.

Talwar stopped her vehicle last winter on a busy street in downtown Naperville in order to exchange text messages with her husband. An officer who noticed her stopped car in the northbound lane of Washington Street approached Talwar’s vehicle and arrested her on DUI charges and other infractions, including operating a motor vehicle while using an electronic communications device.

In return for her guilty plea to DUI, the other infractions were dropped, and Talwar received a sentence of one year of supervision, $1,500 in fines and costs, Level 2 DUI monitoring, and mandatory attendance at a drunk driving victim impact panel. Her sentence included no jail time to be served.

Additionally, Talwar must comply with all terms and condition of supervision and monitoring for a year, or risk further penalties, which might include jail time. As you can see, a DUI conviction can result in serious penalties and high financial costs.

If you are accused of DUI, you face the possibility of significant fines, supervision, and even jail time. An experienced DUI lawyer is essential if you wish to have any chance of minimizing these consequences or of avoiding a conviction altogether.
