Man facing DUI charge after hitting, injuring woman with car

A man in Illinois is currently facing a drunk driving charge after police said he hit a woman. The car accident occurred on a recent Saturday. However, just because the man is facing a DUI charge does not mean he is automatically guilty in the law's eyes. Instead, he is presumed innocent until proved guilty.

DUI conviction carries several severe consequences

Being arrested and taken into custody for drunk driving can understandably be scary. After all, a DUI arrest and subsequent conviction can have a negative impact on one's reputation and future. However, those facing drunk driving charges in Illinois have the right to defend themselves in court.

Man in Illinois faces 6th DUI charge

A man in Illinois was recently accused of drinking and driving. However, this was not his first DUI arrest. The man's driver's license was revoked at the time of his recent arrest, as he had already racked up five previous drunk driving convictions in the county where the recent arrest took place.

Man facing DUI charge following crash

A crash that led to a man's injury in Illinois also ended up leading to his arrest for drunk driving. The alleged DUI crash took place early in the morning on a recent Tuesday. The man facing criminal charges is 27 years old.

Elgin achieves highest increase in DUI arrests

A city not far from Naperville, Elgin achieved the highest boost in arrests for impaired driving last year -- a rise of 34.7 percent. This information recently came from a yearly survey on DUI arrests that the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists released. About 700 police agencies participated in the survey, with the response rate being 81 percent.

Accused of a DUI? There are significant penalties

Driving under the influence is a mistake that no one should ever commit. But sometimes it happens, and for those that are accused, they stand to lose too much. The consequences for a DUI charge are so severe, and they can affect an individual for many years -- decades even -- after the charge has been resolved.
