Illinois criminal law is divided into 3 categories: petty offenses, misdemeanors & felonies. Petty offenses are only punishable by a fine. Misdemeanors are the crimes that are considered less serious. As such, the penalties one faces upon conviction of a misdemeanor are less severe than those one would face when convicted of a felony. In most cases, misdemeanors may result in a jail sentence of no more than 1 year, while felony convictions result in serious sentences of over a year in the Illinois Department of Corrections — prison.


Some people wrongfully believe that hiring an attorney could be seen as an admission of guilt, this could not be further from the truth.  Many times, people will waive their right to have legal counsel present during questioning and they subsequently make statements against their interest.  In the justice system, you are presumed innocent and you have the right to remain silent.  It is the prosecution’s burden to prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  Hiring an attorney is the best way to protect your rights and you should never consent to being questioned without an attorney present.  Call The Rodriguez Legal Group at 312-243-6200, located in Cicero, IL.
