Municipal Plea of Guilty DWI--criminal charge?
I pled guilty to a DWI in Town & Country Municipal Court and received a "SIS". Does that count as a "criminal charge" if employment application asks about criminal charges?
Yes, but if the probation is over I would look at the question closely. If it asks if you have been convicted of a...
Consequences for a 3rd dwi with the first two off your record?
I was charged with a 3rd dwi that did result in an accident. No one was hurt and I did not blow...my first two offenses were dropped to carless and imprudent driving and from what I understand the officer is asking the judge to charge me with a misdemeanor charge as opposed to a felony. What is likely to happen as far as punishment? Also when applying for jobs do I need to check yes or no for a felony conviction?
You really need to hire an attorney as soon as possible. From the facts as you present them, you are not yet convicted...

In a DUI situation, will it effect your breathalyzer reading if the officer didn't clean the tip and do a fresh retest.
Wouldn't it be able to prove that the officer had a part in getting the reading he wanted..... If you blow once, twice, 4,5 times into the same mouth piece and leave that residue/condensation in there and re blow, will it collect to a higher BAC reading eventually? This office also has it out for this guy and already has 1 DUI pinned on him. He's going for a second now, same officer. Did the guy have beer that day yes, was he over the limit,. 08, I just dont know, so 90 days in jail, like 2,000 hrs community service, and blower 10 years... Its just terrible, and I just dont know if I trust this officer if that condensation really does matter in the test result, to build it higher each blow to make them blow over the legal limit, they are compliant, and blow everytime asked.
That's hard to answer without talking to your friend and without seeing the reports. Blowing multiple times can affect...
Is it probable cause or reasonable suspicion to avoid a sobriety checkpoint?
If someone were to turn into a gas station parking lot and turn onto another street to avoid going through the checkpoint, would that be enough evidence a cop needs to make a stop? It could be proven that the checkpoint is invincible from this angle.
Absolutely it is probable cause for a stop.
DUI from other state never showed up on driving record
In August of 2002 I got a DUI in Illinois but had a Missouri license. My Illinois lawyer told me Illinois couldn't suspend my Missouri license but that they could suspend it when Illinois sent the information to Missouri. It was never suspended and it isn't on my driving record. I was just at the dmv to update my address and heard them asking people if their license has ever been suspended or revoked. This must be something new they are asking because I've never been asked this question. When I renew my license in 2019 I am not sure how to answer this question. My license hasn't ever been suspended but my driving privileges in Illinois were taken away for 3 months. I am very confused but also don't want to bring it up if I don't have to, as it's been 13 years.
This is probably better posed to a MO lawyer but my suspicion is that when you apply for renewal MO will run PDPS and "...
