As a DUI lawyer I represent people charged with DUI in the State of Illinois and especially Chicago and the Schaumburg area. Did you know that in Chicago alone there were 3,795 DUI arrests made by the Chicago Police Department in 2012. While that sounds like a very large number you should consider that such figure does not include the number of DUI arrests Made by the Illinois State police on Chicago interstate highways.The Illinois State police made 9,719 DUI arrests in the state of Illinois during that year and one can assume that a large number of those were made in Chicago. A DUI arrest made by the Chicago Police Department automatically is sent to the Daley Center in downtown Chicago. Interestingly, the Illinois State Police have the option as to what Cook County district the case will be sent to for court. Very often I have seen Chicago DUI arrests by the Illinois State police sent as far away as Skokie or Markham courthouses.Should you have any questions or are looking for more information as to the specifics of a Chicago DUI arrest, feel free to contact my office anytime.
