Those who are arrested and charged with DUI can have their careers and lives basically destroyed. Not only is the experience embarrassing, but it is extremely worrisome and those charged often suffer through sleepless nights filled with anxiety.

Fortunately, lawmakers in Illinois have recently taken steps to reform the juvenile justice system in an attempt to rehabilitate those convicted of juvenile crimes.
