Understanding Your Charges in DuPage County

If you are bewildered by the sudden appearance of legal troubles in DuPage County, you are not alone. Our criminal defense attorneys have encountered numerous clients facing confusion about police visits or investigations. We strive to put you at ease by helping you understand the allegations against you, outlining our negotiation strategy, and working towards reducing or dismissing the charges altogether.

Facing Imprisonment and Fines in DuPage County

The most common concern clients express when facing criminal charges is the fear of imprisonment. While we diligently work to have charges dismissed or reduced, understanding the basics of state criminal charges and penalties in DuPage County is crucial. Crimes are generally categorized into misdemeanors and felonies, each carrying distinct penalties:

  • Misdemeanors are penalized with a fine and a potential sentence of up to one year in the county jail
  • Felonies are penalized with a fine and a potential sentence of one year or more in the Illinois Department of Corrections

Federal agencies like the IRS, FBI, ATF, etc, often investigate federal crimes falling under U.S. laws. Sentences in federal court can be severe, but our experienced attorney, Rob Hanauer, has a track record of securing favorable outcomes for clients, often obtaining below-guideline sentences.
