When you drink and drive, your life can change in an instant. Each year, thousands of Illinois residents are pulled over for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. A single conviction can result in probation, expensive fines, and, in some case, even jail time. Along the way, you will also likely face the suspension or revocation of your driving privileges. At Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC, our experienced DUI defense lawyers are equipped to help you navigate the legal process and avoid long-term damage to your future.
Failing or Refusing a Chemical Test in Kane County
Most Illinois DUI stops include a request from a law enforcement officer for the driver to submit to chemical testing for blood-alcohol content, BAC. The most common form of such tests is a breathalyzer. If you fail a breathalyzer or another chemical test, your driver's license will be automatically suspended for six months for a first offense.
If you refuse the test, your license will be suspended for one year for a first offense. Subsequent offenses will result in longer suspensions. These suspensions may be enforced even if the DUI case against you is dismissed, so it is important to work with a skilled attorney right way to protect your rights.
