If your DUI case was dismissed or resulted in an acquittal at trial, you are eligible for an expungement. Having a DUI arrest in your criminal background carries severe consequences. Once you have been arrested for driving under the influence, a record of this incident is filed with the Illinois State Police’s database and remains on record, even if charges were dismissed or you were acquitted. In essence, this means that potential employers and landlords will have access to your arrest record, which will affect your chances of securing employment, housing, or educational opportunities.
