Consequences For DUI Resulting In Serious Bodily Injury
In Illinois, conviction of a DUI offense resulting in great bodily harm, permanent disability or disfigurement to a passenger, pedestrian or a person in another vehicle is a class four felony, subject to possible imprisonment of one to three years and fines of up to $25,000. Your driver’s license would also be suspended for a minimum of two years.
The long-term consequences can be even more serious than the short-term consequences. Criminal background checks are increasingly common in our society. Whether you are applying for a job, college, a loan or seeking to rent an apartment, you may find that your options are far more limited with a felony on your record. As a convicted felon, you would lose the right to vote and the right to serve on a jury. You would also be barred from possessing firearms.
With consequences like these, it only makes sense to discuss your situation with a lawyer as soon as possible.
