You are facing a serious criminal charge.  I'm not an Illinois attorney, but my research suggests that your state's law is very harsh on people who drive with a suspended or revoked license;  this isn't "just a traffic ticket" at all, you will have a criminal record if convicted, and if there are certain aggravating circumstances, you could be sentenced to more than a year in jail for a felonly offense.

Please get a lawyer to defend you in this case.  One place to find qualified attorneys is our website, http://attorneypages.com
