Missouri DWI/DUI Charges:
Persons who have been arrested or charged with driving while intoxicated (“DWI”) or driving under the influence (“DUI”), involving either alcohol or drugs, can face very harsh consequences — even for a first time offense. DWI/DUI laws in missouri are complex and constantly changing. These types of offenses can be municipal ordinance violations, misdemeanors or felonies. In most instances, there are actually two (2) cases filed against you: First, there is a criminal charge in either State, County or Municipal Court. Second, there is a civil case initiated by the Department of Revenue which will affect your driver’s license. While these cases stem from the same incident, each proceeds independently and carries decidedly different consequences.
Because DWI/DUI charges often result in jail time and the loss of your driver’s license, it is imperative that you navigate the complicated journey through the DWI/DUI process with an experienced attorney. The case that affects your driver’s license has a strict time limitation within which you can file an objection and it begins to run almost immediately after your initial contact with law enforcement. Accordingly, it is incredibly important that you meet with your attorney immediately after the incident and bring all of the paperwork you received with you to your first appointment.
