Violating the terms of your DUI supervision or probation could result in your extradition to the state where your case was originally heard. Extradition means you could be arrested in your current state and brought back to face charges in the original state.
Let’s say you didn’t attend alcohol education classes, or you failed to take required drug tests. If you did not honor the conditions of your original DUI plea agreement, a petition for violation of your probation could be filed in the original state. Whether you will be extradited to that state is usually up to the county prosecutor, and it is impossible to predict their decision in any given case.
If you are at risk of extradition to Illinois, you should contact an experienced Illinois criminal law attorney immediately. An attorney can review the facts of your case for your best possible defense. Sometimes a violation of probation is a result of a miscommunication, and an attorney can help sort this out.
Even if you did violate probation, an attorney may help you through the court system to clear the matter up. At times, this can mean negotiating a more favorable plea agreement than you might be able to get on your own.
