Many people who are charged with a DUI simply want to get rid of the case as fast as possible. The idea of going back and forth to court fighting the case can be torturous. This often convinces people to plead guilty and cut a deal for supervision which is not considered a criminal conviction under the law. Illinois law does not allow for the clearing of a DUI even if the sentence is supervision.
The exception to the rule is that an arrest for a DUI CAN be expunged if the case resulted in a dismissal or a finding of not guilty. Thus an aggressive defense of the case is needed to clear you record permanently. Cutting a deal to plead guilty even for a sentence of supervision can have lifelong consequences that can affect your future.
