I would need more information to answer. What will happen depends upon the court you must appear in, the state's attorney or prosecutor's policy, and the policy of the Judge. In some courts you might plea bargain this charge down so that you get "supervision" and avoid a conviction on your record. In other courts you might take the conviction and pay a steep fine. By the way, in Illinois they consider driving this fast a Misdemeanor not just a ticket, so you should definitely hire an attorey.

You are being charged with aggravated speeding.

Aggravated speeding, as of this posting, is not eligible for "supervision", thus a guilty plea would create a permanent criminal record.

I suggest consulting with an attorney.
