Are DUI arrests up or down in the Northwest Suburbs such as Arlington Heights, Palatine, Schaumburg and other cities that send their DUI cases to the Third Municipal District of Cook County? It seems evident from the number of DUI arrests and charges on the Court docket that DUI arrests in towns such as Schaumburg and Palatine are significantly down. But Arlington Heights has a very busy court call handled by the local prosecution in charge of DUIs. It should be noted that the Cook County States Attorney handles the DUI prosecutions for Palatine and Schaumburg - and while they have no impact on how many arrests the police in Schaumburg and Palatine make for DUI, it is clear that the numbers are down.
Should you be arrested for a DUI, what is the first thing you should do? Get your head together and go on the offensive. If you wait until the first court date to do something, you are like an ostrich burying her head in the sand. You will be swept away when the legal tide rolls in. But if you act quickly and aggressively, you may be able to save your license and put your DUI defense in a position where you gain the momentum and win the day.
