Am I eligible for Court Supervision under Illinois DUI law?

If you have never had a DUI before, you may be eligible for Court Supervision. Court Supervision will not appear on your public driving record, nor will it affect your driving privileges. If you have been previously arrested for DUI and received Court Supervision, or a conviction, or plead guilty to a reduced charge of reckless driving, you are not eligible for supervision. Depending on your driving history and facts of the case, you may be facing revocation of your license, fines, jail time, community service, alcohol classes, and vehicle impoundment/seizure. Your case may also be upgraded to a felony depending on your driving history and facts of the case. This may happen if you committed a DUI while your license was suspended or revoked for a previous DUI, you have committed at least two previous DUI's, or there were serious or fatal injuries.
