Legal Tip of the Day: DUI and Driver’s License Suspension in Illinois

Transcript:

My name is Matt Fakhoury with XpungeChicago.com, and here’s your Legal Tip of the Day from XpungeChicago.

Now, today’s legal tip of the day is regarding your DUI arrest and specifically, how long your license will be suspended once you’re arrested for DUI. Now, in most instances, if you are arrested for a DUI, your license will be suspended for a period of either six months or one year, depending on whether or not you submitted to chemical testing.

People always ask me, “Should I submit to the Breathalyzer?” (Or, in other words, blow inside of that Breathalyzer). And the answer is always no. Just know that if you do not submit to the Breathalyzer, that your license will be suspended for one year. Now, that sounds like it’s a death sentence, but it’s not. It actually might help you in court as far as your criminal case is concerned, and you might even be able to beat the suspension, so to speak.
