Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
A person can be charged with driving under the influence in Illinois when he or she drives a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or any combination of drugs that renders a person incapable of driving safely. A conviction of a DUI on your record can result in the revocation of your driver’s license, high fines and court costs, and lengthy jail sentences. In Franklin County, protecting your privilege to drive a vehicle is crucial due to rural areas with a lack of available public transportation options. Contact Levanti Law to find out how we may be able to help you.
Driving with a Suspended or Revoked Driver’s License
If you have been charged with driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, you could potentially be facing mandatory jail time if convicted. Driving with a suspended or revoked license can also be enhanced to felony offenses for certain individuals. In addition to these penalties, each offense for driving with a suspended or revoked license can make it more difficult for someone to get his or her license reinstated.

Operating an Uninsured Vehicle
