What is a Petition to Revoke in Illinois?

Many people who are charged with a crime in Illinois may be familiar with what court supervision is (an article explaining it is linked below if you are not). If you've received court supervision as part of your guilty plea then you must complete all ordered conditions of your plea. This can include things such as: fulfilling your community service hours, paying all fines and court costs, attending classes, and many others.

If you do not complete all the ordered conditions by the of your supervision date, then the prosecuting party may send you a letter in the mail called a petition to revoke. This will revoke your court supervision and turn your plea into a conviction.
