Why do we have to move?
My husband has to do a treatment program for DWI court. However, we live 3 hours from the county the case is in and was told we had to move to that county for the program. I have explained to the lawyer that we have children in school and are doing phenomenal and I am the only one with a stable job. Moving the jurisdiction off the case to new county is not an option. Is there anything else that can be done?

Something fishy about this Field Sobriety procedure. ??
An officer had me do several field sobriety tests (fst). Nystagmus test, walk and pivot and one legged stand. All seemed to go well. He then had me blow in the breathalyzer. His partner motioned to see the result. The officer refused stating “I got this”. As though he wasn’t satisfied he had me do another test that I’ve never heard of. He had me stand with my feet together, arms down at my side with my head tilted back, eyes closed. Then told me to count from 30 backwards. I did this. As I completed my counting, 3, 2, 1, 0. The officer then finished his counting out loud… 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0. He then immediately grabbed my arms behind me and cuffed me stating "your under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs." Is this for real? I've never heard of it.
The officer gave you what is called The Rhomberg Test; however, it is really a modified Rhomberg for DWI purposes....
Can I get my Missouri license back after a 10 year revocation?
According to the DOR website I have to petition the court of the last DWI conviction to obtain an Order of Reinstatement. It also says that I must register with the Missouri Automated Criminal History Site (MACHS) for a Criminal History Check. According to Missouri Revised Statutes Chapter 302 Drivers' and Commercial Drivers' Licenses Section 302.060 (9) To any person who has been convicted more than twice of violating state law, except that, after the expiration of ten years from the date of conviction of the last offense of violating such law or ordinance relating to driving while intoxicated. It says that they will look at my conviction for the last 10 years and I have a drug possession charge 8 years ago and have been clean and sober ever since...will the court reinstate me?

Will I still be charged for a dui?
I was arrested last night under suspicion of DUI. When I was released this morning, they didn't give me a ticket/citation or say anything about a court date. I've called the municipal court and the gentleman that I spoke with said that he didn't see anything for me in the system. This is my first offense and I'm not quite sure how these things work. Any advice would be great!
