Welcome and thank you for your question!

In 2010, Illinois changed its law and reckless driving or DUI charges can no longer be sealed or expunged. So, the answer to your question must be "no." I'm truly sorry.

I hope that you found this information to be helpful and, indeed, informative and worthy of a positive rating so that I receive credit for assisting you today.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
