Can My DUI Be Expunged?

Answer: No. A DUI case cannot be expunged in Illinois.

A person asked this question to a search engine and the search engine guided the person to this weblog. I don’t believe I have answered this question on this weblog before, so I will now.

Generally, when a person receives a sentence of judicial supervision, the person’s case may be eligible for expungement down the road. But, if the person pleads guilty to DUI and is placed on judicial supervision, then the person will never* be able to expunge his case. This is the law in Illinois.

*OK, you could get a pardon that authorizes expungement, but good luck with that.  Your chances of getting such a pardon are slim to none.
