My question involves criminal law for the state of: IL
I was arrested while at a bar in illinois....in my hometown. I was taken to jail because the police said I broke a gas pipe and that soemone saw me do it....thier witness later turns out to be a convicted felon a few times. Regardless....i argued and said i was leaving as i live a block away from the bar. I was tazered and sent to jail and let out the next day....no charges filed. This was a year ago and I found out that this is on my arrest record still. Battery of police and destruction of property. I am a war veteran (marine) age 27 and had recently (at the time) started to seek conseling for post tramatic stress.through the VA..i am on medication. I have never had a speeding ticket before this....and I feel like there was undue force used...but i undestand that people make mistakes......but i just want to get this off my record.......an expungement...but don't want charges to be brought up if they somehow could be. This is a ton of stress for me because i have a professional job and i would not like this to affect my career. I have suffered through a lot of stress because of this incident and would appreciate advice....Waiting a year is too long....it is killing me.
