Understanding Aggravated DUIs In Illinois

An aggravated DUI in Illinois is a serious offense that involves additional criteria that amplify the severity of a standard DUI.

These criteria may include:

  • Incidents resulting in injuries or fatalities: The gravest form of aggravated DUI arises when driving under the influence leads to an accident causing injury or death, potentially resulting in felony charges and extensive prison terms.
  • Elevated blood alcohol levels: A blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at or above .16% can upgrade a DUI to an aggravated offense.
  • DUI with a minor passenger: Driving under the influence with a minor (under 16 years old) in the vehicle is considered an aggravating circumstance, regardless of whether an accident occurs.
  • Repeat DUI offenses: A recent DUI conviction can elevate the charge to an aggravated DUI.

The penalties for an aggravated DUI in Illinois are significantly more severe than for a standard DUI and can include: a longer incarceration period of up to three years, a fine of up to $25,000 and extended loss of driving privileges.
