Driving a car after drinking alcohol is always a hazard, whether risking injury to oneself or others, or the chance of being arrested and charged with DUI. Penalties for DUI are severe in Illinois, especially if an accident or injuries are involved. Those who face these penalties often rely on a strong DUI defense to ensure police have not violated their rights and to challenge the evidence against them.
If you plan to go back to using your maiden name after divorce, you are able to legally make this change in the divorce process. Depending on your situation, it may make sense for you to change your child’s last name too. However, this cannot be done as part of your divorce.
The moments during which a crime takes place can be terrifying, especially if weapons are involved. Even if the person committing the offense is standing directly in front of a witness, the witness may be looking at the weapon and not be able to give police a clear description of the suspect. Illinois police investigations based on eyewitness accounts or even surveillance video may be flawed, and those facing charges would do well to build a strong criminal defense.
