Missouri DWI?
Lawyers often preach, "don't blow, fight the charge in court" yet this seems to open up a whole new can of worms since the results are normally the same: SATOP, probation, etc., yet you end up spending more money for the BAC refusal to get your license back. Is the pitch to refuse to blow simply a ploy to make more money for DWI lawyers?
I have not heard lawyers preach that. What I have heard lawyers whose opiioins I respect say, is that if you have no...

Does MO offer ARD for first offense DWI? Since her case is so delayed would the charges be reduced or dismissed?
My daughter had similar situation in MO in Feb 2016. Left the roadway with damage to her car but no injuries. Breathalizer reading 0.12. She was driving in MO. Living as a graduate student in IL. DL issued from WI. She gave both her IL address and the WI address. We appeared at her court date but were told they had no paperwork. The clerk thought the case must have been sent to another court and we would receive notice of a new court date. She moved to MO in august 2016 and had her mail forwarded to new address. She obtained a MO drivers license. In July 2017 she received a letter of failure to appear with license revocation and warrant due to court notice being undeliverable. The court date had been Sept 2016. She visited the St. Charles station and was given a new court date of Dec. 21, 2017
It would be best to discuss the case directly with a DWI attorney in St. Louis. There are several possibilities for the...
Is there a statute of limitations on a dui in Missouri?
Many years ago, maybe 8 or so, I received a dui. Pled guilty, was ordered probation, Satop and driving course to get my full driving privileges back. Due to life circumstances, I didn’t get around to doing that, but I did do my probation period with no issues. I am now working on getting my license back and am unable to find my case online. Is there a statute of limitations on getting things done or should I continue to go to my satop things?
There is no statute of limitations on DUI's. Some states had and may (still have?) laws that effectively "erased" a...

You should hire an attorney. The charge may be reduced but it would depend on if the state can prove your priors. Also,...
Could being charged with open container have anything to do with why it resulted in possession of instrument of crime?
It was actually my fiance that was charged with it and he also got charge with driving while suspended and open container on top of the possession. The officer gave him a breathalyzer and he passed it but my mother was in the vehicle with him and it was her open container. He still got charged....
If the container was hers, she should be able to take responsibility for having it (perhaps unbeknownst to him) and...
