Accident - .157 blow and License Suspended at the time

K.M. was arrested by the Lincolnwood Police Department after rear ending another vehicle and causing a 3 car accident while his driver's license was suspended for moving violations.  He blew a 0.157. The State's attorney said I didn't have a chance to win especially with the judge who was presiding that day. After filing a pre-trial motion, the Judge believed my position that although the State had probable cause to arrest K.M. for Driving While Suspended, they did not have probable cause to arrest K.M for DUI and suppressed the breath test.  The State knew it would lose the DUI and dismissed it.  Since K.M had valid driving privileges and had cleared his driver's license, that citation was dismissed as well.  Going from a possible felony with an accident and a blow almost twice the legal limit to a dismissal and no fines, classes or other conditions was a terrific result.

After working with the police for many years, I can assure you that the police are not your friends. If they are asking questions of you regarding an incident that you have no criminal connection with, the key component is that you are being questioned. Accordingly, never go to a police station or converse with an officer without the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney. If you do, your words and statements are subject to manipulation, twisting and embellishments that will work against you. Upon being contacted by a police officer to answer questions regarding a crime in which you are not the victim, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.

Contact the Law Offices of Steven J. Block and Associates to discuss your case. We are available 24 Hours/7 Days per week.

Additionally, if you have been arrested and charged with a Felony, Misdemeanor or Local Ordinance, you are now in the "system". What happened on the date of your arrest will always be your memory. However, it does not have to be memorialized into the "system" whereby your future or present employment is at risk. Dwelling on what happened when you were arrested won't assist you. Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney will help you. At the Law Offices of Steven J. Block and Associates, we have over 12 years of experience in the criminal sector. We have worked on thousands of criminal cases in a successful manner.

If you have been arrested and charged with DUI, you should promptly consult with an experienced DUI attorney. Due to legislative support, organizations such as MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) and AAIM (Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists) and general public intolerance, prosecutors and judges are scrutinizing each and every move they make as they tiptoe into how they utilize their discretion and make rulings on cases that allege a person was driving while intoxicated.

The good news is that the charge of DUI can be defended by an experienced DUI attorney. If you are charged with a DUI, you will be facing the possibility of the following:

1) A Jail Sentence In The County Department Of Corrections Or Illinois Department Of Corrections.

2) Community Service

3) A Suspension And/Or Revocation Of Driving Privileges

4) Court Ordered Drug And Alcohol Treatment 

5) Fine And Court Costs

6) Threat to Job Security

These possibilities can be avoided or at least minimized. Whether you are a first offender, second offender, or have been charged with a third offense or aggravated DUI(Felony), the one constant is that the state must prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. In order to effectively defend your case, the Law Offices of Steven J. Block will utilize our experience as former prosecutors to know "what they are thinking" and experience from defending thousands of DUI's in building your defense by providing you the most efficient, affordable and competent defense to your case.
