In Illinois, we have some of the toughest DUI laws in the nation. If you are arrested and charged with aggravated DUI, you could face complications for the rest of your life if your defense is not handled properly. Beyond the severe criminal consequences, your driver’s license is placed at risk and you can be subjected to high auto insurance premiums.
At The Law Office of Jessica Koester, LLC, we offer people charged with aggravated DUI personal attention and vigorous representation during a difficult time. We understand that good people can find themselves in bad situations, and we will strive to fairly represent your side of the story.
What Is Aggravated DUI?
Aggravated DUI is a felony driving under the influence offense that is commonly charged for the following reasons:
- Habitual offense: Individuals can be charged with aggravated DUI on their third DUI and any subsequent DUI
- Injury: If someone suffers bodily harm as a result of someone driving under the influence, the allegedly impaired driver can be charged with aggravated DUI
- Suspended driver’s license: Someone driving on a suspended license from a previous DUI can be charged with aggravated DUI if he or she is alleged to be driving under the influence
Prosecutors pursue these charges aggressively, so the threat of serving prison time is very real in many cases. It is crucial to have an attorney with the trial skills and resources necessary to fight back and protect your rights.
