Missouri Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys
- Brinkman, Richard: If you have been arrested or are under investigation by a local police department, you will most likely be prosecuted in an Missouri state court. State crimes are violations of state and local statutes or ordinances. They are prosecuted in either county or circuit courts in the county in which the charges are filed, by the state attorney. In some cases, early intervention by an experienced criminal defense attorney can even prevent an arrest and/or prosecution.

- Abella Law Firm:
If you are charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Missouri, you should consult with an experienced drunk driving defense attorney. Many times Missouri is very tough on a DWI, and the issue is serious enough that having an experienced DWI defense attorney is necessary in order to protect your rights. Your driver's license could be suspended or revoked if you don't take action within 15 days of your arrest if the results of your test were above Missouri's prohibited level (.08%, age 21 or over; .02%, under age 21) or if you refused to take a breath, blood or urine test after being arrested for DWI in Missouri.
Blood Alcohol Limits
Blood alcohol concentration (BAC), is the system of measure used to determine the level of alcohol in your bloodstream. It is illegal to drive in Missouri with a BAC of .08% or higher.
Refusing to Test
In Missouri, the Department of Revenue regulations state that having a driver's license, means you have given advance permission, or "implied consent" to testing for the presence of alcohol should you be stopped by law enforcement on suspicion of DWI.
Refusing to test is a separate offense from DWI. Even if you are later acquitted of the DWI charges, you will still undergo a license suspension of up to one year for refusing to take the test.
If you are convicted of DWI and refused the test at the time of your arrest, you may be required to pay a higher fine and may have your license suspended for a longer period.
Missouri DWI Law
The Missouri DWI Laws carry stiff penalties. It used to be that only the last ten years of your driving record would be taken into account in DWI cases, now your lifetime driving record is considered.

When it comes to DUI/DWI, don't expect law enforcement or the prosecution to offer you any breaks.

Getting a DWI in Jefferson County is, frankly, easy to do.

Before they realize what's happening, they're outside of their vehicles following a flashlight with their eyes, walking a straight line, and doing whatever the officer says in hopes that they'll avoid a trip down to Hillsboro.

- Lee Patton: The criminal justice process is the process by which crimes are investigated, charged, tried, and punished. Because the criminal justice system involves actions by the government against its citizens, the criminal justice process has been the subject of constitutional protections dating back, in the English common law system, to the Magna Carta. The constitutional protections afforded to citizens under modern law derive from both federal and state constitutions. The U.S. Constitution sets forth numerous principles governing both federal and state criminal proceedings. n state proceedings, federal constitutional principles set a baseline standard of protection of the rights of persons accused of crime.

- Stephanie Luntsford: Almost all states increase a charge for driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) from a misdemeanor to a felony when a driver has had a certain number of prior DUI convictions. Accordingly, prosecutors in DUI cases will often search for prior DUI convictions to enhance a new charge. However, the admissibility of a prior conviction in court can depend on when and where the prior conviction occurred. Determining That a Prior Conviction Exists Prior convictions for DUI can be obtained from a variety of sources. Agencies that may have information on an individual's prior charges and convictions include: Prosecutors' Offices Law Enforcement Agencies Departments of Motor Vehicles County and Municipal Courts Probation and Corrections Offices Newspaper Archives

- David Wells: The system of "bail" refers to the release of a prisoner after their arrest but prior to their trial. Bail must be backed by a form of security, usually cash or a bail bond (a premium percentage of the bail paid to a bond seller), which is forfeited if the defendant fails to appear at trial. In other words, the individual posting bail or a bail bond, (typically the defendant, family member or a close friend), essentially guarantees to pay the full bail amount in the event that the defendant "jumps bail," or fails to appear at trial. This bail process is subject to some constitutional limitations.

If I can get you reinstated, or get a hardship driving privilege; a good result will usually follow. Alcohol Offenses (DWI, DUI, and BAC) are even more complex. There will usually be two separate actions against you. There is the actual ticket in the Court, and there is a separate suspension or revocation action from Jefferson City, because of what you blew on the breath test, or because of your refusal to take the breath test.

- Linnenbringer Law Firm: Driving While Intoxicated If you have received a ticket for driving under the influence, it is imperative to retain attorney representation immediately. A DWI conviction carries with it a number of potential consequences including points on your license, heavy fines, a license suspension, and even jail time. Please note the importance of obtaining a lawyer immediately when charged with a DWI. In Missouri, your license will be automatically suspended when you are charged with a DWI. This ruling can be challenged in an administrative hearing, but it must be done quickly. Depending on the facts of your case, you may have as few as 15 days to file a request for an administrative hearing. If no action is taken, you risk losing your license for multiple years.
- Perkins Law Office: If you or someone in your family has been accused of a crime, don't delay. Hire an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.

An experienced defense attorney can minimize fines, avoid jail sentences, or even getting the case thrown out of court.

Misdemeanors are crimes punishable by less than one year in prison and may include such offenses as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing.

Aside from the devastation of losing your ability to legally drive a car, there are other negative consequences of a DWI/DUI arrest; some youÕll feel right away, and some youÕll run into many years down the road. Initially, there are several criminal fines and payments for such things as SATOP classes and an Ignition Interlock Device.
The possibility of spending time in jail clearly should also be a concern. And when you do regain your driving privileges, your troubles do not end there. You can look forward to much higher car insurance payments and a DWI/DUI conviction on your permanent record, a black mark which employers and creditors do not look
- Bardol Law Office:
If you have been arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI), then it is critical you seek legal advice immediately. DWI charges are criminal and can carry with them very severe penalties including substantial fines, loss of driver's license, and potential jail time. Hiring an attorney can help you understand and better tackle the numerous legal and administrative issues that you are facing. A proper legal investigation may also find that there were flaws in your DWI arrest such as an improper traffic stop or
medical concerns that may have affected your DWI tests. If these flaws do exist, you may be able to successfully plead not guilty to your DWI charge.

- Melissa Stewart: In a landmark 1969 U.S. Supreme Court case, Chimel v. California, the Court held that law enforcement officers may conduct warrantless searches of arrested individuals and their immediate surrounding areas. This rule is known as the "search incident to an arrest" exception to the Fourth Amendment's prohibition against unreasonable searches and seizures. The rationale behind this decision is that officers should be protected from the danger that an individual could reach for a concealed weapon. The rule also serves to prevent the destruction of evidence. Such searches are not only considered to be an exception to the Fourth Amendment's general requirement that officers have warrants prior to conducting searches, such searches are also presumed to be "reasonable" as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court in United States v. Robinson (1973).
