As a criminal lawyer in Schaumburg Illinois, John Callahan has represented numerous clients who are underage. Many of these clients went to the University of Iowa, University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin or other universities nearby the state of Illinois. As many college kids do, these students decided to drink alcohol at a bar. Shocking! Unfortunately for them, they had received a tickets by the university police for illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor or illegal possession of alcohol by a minor. For some reason, Iowa and Michigan often send reports of these possession of alcohol tickets to the Illinois Secretary of State. What happens next is frustrating for the students because they receive notice that their license will be suspended in the State of Illinois.
They often ask me, “Is there anything you can do to get rid of the suspension on my drivers license?” My reply is that the answer is yes. As long as the possession of alcohol ticket by a minor did not involve the use of an automobile, the Illinois Secretary of State has repeatedly removed the suspension from their driving records.
If your son or daughter is in college and has received a suspension on their drivers license due to a possession of alcohol ticket, feel free to contact Schaumburgcriminal defense lawyer, John Callahan, at anytime to discuss their case.
