Case Number: 
2014 IL 115308
Decision Date: 
January 24, 2014
District: 
5th Dist.
Division/County: 
Jackson Co.
Justice: 
THOMAS
Holding: 
Appellate court reversed; circuit court affirmed.
Defendant was charged with DUI, and statutory summary suspension (SSS) of his license commenced. Two days later, Defendant was charged with driving on a suspended license, but SSS was rescinded six days later. For crime of driving on suspended license, rescission of SSS is of prospective effect only. Subsequent order of rescission of SSS does not render invalid charge of driving on suspended license. (GARMAN, FREEMAN, KILBRIDE, KARMEIER, BURKE, and THEIS, concurring.)
