Underage DUI in Illinois

If a person is under the age of 21, then a person may be convicted of a DUI regardless of BAC level. The first offense includes a license suspension of a minimum of two years compared with a one year license suspension if over 21 years of age, possible prison term of up to a year and a possible maximum fine of $2500. A second conviction requires a license suspension of a minimum 5 years, if the second conviction is within a 20 year period, a mandatory minimum of five days in jail or 240 hours of community service.  A third conviction requires a minimum 10 year license suspension and a mandatory prison term of 18-30 months. An aggravated DUI exists if the violation results in a motor vehicle crash ending in great bodily harm or permanent disfigurement and is elevated to a class 4 felony. The conviction includes a minimum license suspension of 1 year, possible prison term for up to 12 years and a fine to not exceed $25,000. Unlike the class 4 felony conviction for adults, for those under 21 this conviction does not carry with it a mandatory prison term or community service hours.
