People v. S.H.

Our client was charged with DUI and a failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident after a major collision on the 94 Eastbound. Mr. LaScola (before trial) was able to successfully rescind the Statutory Summary Suspension when necessary witness failed to appear at the hearing date. A few months later, Mr. LaScola conducted a bench trial and proved to the Court (in the Skokie courthouse) that the State did not meet their burden of proof on the DUI. Our client received Court Supervision on the accompanying traffic citation, but was found NOT GUILTY on the DUI. Our client had a prior DUI less than 5 years ago, and his license would have been revoked if he were found guilty. 3-Year Suspension RESCINDED and NOT GUILTY on the DUI that would have revoked his license!!
