Your son definitely needs an Illinois attorney to represent him in this case. DUI is a very serious offense in this state, with possible jail time involved. Because the offense occurred in Peoria, would be best to locate an attorney located in that city. Perhaps they have a local bar association with a roll of attorneys who practice in that city regularly. Good luck, but be sure he has an attorney with him from the very start.
