The experience of being arrested and thrown into the back of a police vehicle is incredibly embarrassing and often traumatic.

The state of Illinois is notoriously tough on those who are convicted of drug charges, with offenders often facing years prison time. Even if a conviction never happens, these types of charges can turn a person's life upside down.
