In 2022, our blogs included information about Illinois law, criminal penalties, defense options, and much more. Our most popular blogs of 2022 are listed below.

  1. What Illinois Gun Owners Should Know About Red Flag Laws – The Illinois Firearms Restraining Order Act allows for the seizure of an individual’s firearms and forbids the person from purchasing additional firearms. Self-harm, violent or threatening comments, or suicidal actions can lead to seizure of a firearm under Illinois red flag law.
  2. Retail Theft Can Be a Felony Offense Punishable by Serious Jail Time – Anyone accused of theft or shoplifting should understand their rights and the potential criminal penalties they face. Theft of property worth less than $300 is a misdemeanor in Illinois but theft of property worth more than $300 is a felony.
  3. Understanding Felony Drug Charges in Illinois – Possession of large amount of illicit substances, drug manufacturing or delivery, and drug trafficking can lead to felony criminal charges. If convicted of a felony drug offense, an individual faces significant penalties, including substantial prison time.
  4. What You Need to Know About Drug Paraphernalia Laws – You can be arrested for possessing “drug paraphernalia,” or tools or equipment used to manufacture or consume drugs. It is possible to face steep fines and other criminal penalties, so it is important to take drug paraphernalia charges seriously and secure legal counsel if you are accused of possessing paraphernalia.
  5. Failed a BAC Chemical Test? You May Still Be Able to Get Out of a DUI – Failing a breathalyzer test or blood alcohol test does not necessarily mean you will be convicted of DUI. Problems with the testing equipment or procedure can lead to inaccurate results. This could potentially lead to an acquittal or dismissal of the DUI charges.
