Chicago DUI Charges: A Prom Memory Your Teen Doesn’t Want

Prom and graduation season is upon us. Unfortunately, teen drunk driving tends to increase this time of year – as do law enforcement efforts to prevent it.

Everyone dreads tax time. Even if you’re owed a nice rebate, the hassle of preparing your income tax returns is a headache, and most of us put it off until the last minute. However, if you’re not careful when preparing your tax returns, you could face something far more serious than missing a portion of your refund: income tax fraud charges.

Some Illinois Sex Crimes Specifically Aimed at Protecting Kids

Child Pornography | Sex Crimes

State legislation is put into place in order to help to protect the people of Illinois. Doing so allows more people to exercise their rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
