Criminal Defense Attorney Providing Legal Help in Lombard Drug DUI Cases

You need to be very aware of the effects of drugs on your mental and physical capacity before you get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle after their use. Drugs and alcohol in combination can be very debilitating for drivers. The State of Illinois has very strict laws and penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) cases. The rise in serious injury and death on Illinois roadways has led to increased and aggressive prosecution, with the threat of incarceration, huge fines, and potential loss of driving privileges.

Defending DUI Drug Charges in Illinois

If you are driving in a manner that causes police officers to pull you over on suspicion of DUI, you likely will be asked to leave your car to perform one or more sobriety tests to check your mental and physical impairment. They may ask you also to submit to blood alcohol content (BAC) or urine testing to see if you had drugs in your system during the time you were behind the wheel. With a blood alcohol level of .08 or a THC (cannabis) concentration of more than 5 nanograms per milliliter of whole blood or 10 nanograms per milliliter of another bodily substance, you can be charged with DUI. You can face DUI drugs charges for having drugs in your system, such as heroin, cocaine, crack, or any other type of controlled substance. Possession of drugs could bring added charges and penalties. If you are convicted on drug-related DUI charges, you could:

  • Have your driving license suspended or revoked.
  • Pay heavy fines.
  • Serve time in jail.
  • Jeopardize your job or diminish future employment opportunities.
  • Face increased insurance rates.
