Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered
Q. First misdemeanor for conversion in lake county set for bench trial if convicted do I get jail time
A: I've practiced criminal law here for over 30 years and in my experience people rarely get jail time for first offense misdemeanors in Lake County, but it is possible. You should discuss this with your attorney who will know the facts and circumstances of your case and your record and thus, be more qualified to accurately answer this question. Good luck! Al Jones
Q. First ticket did not understand supervision, just said guilty. 2nd ticket can I get supervision?
A: Good question. Yes, for now you are NOT eligible for supervision by mail. However, you may be able to do a 'Motion To Vacate Judgement' on your first ticket and ask for supervision on that one. Either have an attorney do it or talk directly to the clerk of court asap. Good luck. Al
Q. Will the judge dismiss my speeding ticket, for a first time offense?
A: I've practiced in Lake County Illinois (Just South of Wisconsin) for over 30 years and our judges do not just dismiss tickets for people with good records. Sorry. On the other hand, a good driving record is a factor in mitigation that judges will take into consideration in sentencing. So, you'd qualify for court supervision (a non-conviction) and a reasonable fine. Good luck !! Al Jones
