A man receives drug charges after a search of his home

The home should be a place where a person can have freedom and much-needed privacy. Yet, when those in Illinois are suspected of possessing and using illegal drugs, it is not uncommon for law enforcement to invade the home and search the entire structure. However, a search warrant or consent must be obtained before law enforcement officers can legally enter a person's home. When police find evidence of illegal drug use, the home owner(s) can be hit with drug charges.

A DUI charge is troubling and can do damage to reputations

Those in Illinois who are arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol can understandably feel much worry and fear. No person wants to be arrested and charged with a criminal offense. However, a DUI charge, in and of itself, is not proof of anything. A driver was recently arrested in Northbrook and charged with DUI.

Juvenile crimes: Law will help juveniles get needed treatment

It's no secret that crime among the juvenile population has been a problem in the state of Illinois for years. Fortunately, state officials and law enforcement agencies have recently recognized the need for reform. Several laws have been passed that focus on rehabilitation as opposed to incarceration and punishment. A new law in Illinois aims to help the parents of those convicted of juvenile crimes by allowing their children to get the needed mental health treatment without parents having to give up custody.
