Legal Answers
Q. Can I ask for supervision a second time after getting off a 6 month court vision?
A: Yes, you would be eligible for a second court supervision sentence in the state of Illinois. However, Illinois law states you cannot get supervision more than two times in a 12 month period. So make sure you are careful moving forward as you most likely would not be eligible again on any other future traffic ticket in the near future.
Q. 2 dui chrges-at court he was told to turn himself in on jan 26. he had like 2-3 wks to prepare. he also had 2 take a
A: A lot of this depends on the facts and circumstances of the arrest and one's background. However, if an individual pleads guilty and then violates a condition of their sentence (for instance, to abstain from alcohol), then the prosecutor could file a petition to revoke the sentence and ask to have the individual sentenced to a more serious sentence. However, many times, an experienced lawyer can help to keep the current sentence in place.
