As former Illinois prosecutors, Peoria felony DUI attorneys C. Matthew Miller and Robert E. Pugh understand and know how to craft the most effective defense strategies for individuals who are up against serious felony convictions for drunk driving.
In Illinois, the third drunk driving offense is considered a felony. Some of the factors involved in felony DUIs consist of driving on a revoked license, driving without insurance, driving drunk with a passenger who is under the age of 16, causing catastrophic and/or fatal injuries to passengers in another vehicle during a car accident resulting from drunk driving and causing great bodily harm to a passenger under the age of 16.
In Illinois, a third DUI can be charged as a Class 2 felony with a $25,000 fine.
Examining every aspect of your case, our lawyers will collaborate with you to determine the best legal steps to take depending on the facts surrounding your arrest. Our team will develop a solid strategy by identifying possible challenges, including:
