This morning I failed the BAC test on an ignition interlock device on my car. Since this violates my probation, what now?
first time DUI, one year probation, six months ignition interlock. court ordered by the state of kansas.
Well, it is especially difficult to answer this question as a Missouri attorney that does not practice in Kansas....
My lawyer in mo has not taken care of court dates for dwi and now I have warrants. What is my recourse against this lawyer?
I have a dwi in Jackson county mo and property damages. Tickets were written by sheriff dept.

What recourse do I have against him ? I have paid all his costs and now get no return call from him. What can I do??
Do everything you can to contact your current attorney. Go to his or her office if you need to. It's possible that...
Got a out of state DUI, how long will it take to get my license suspened here in MO?
DUI charged in Nevada, moved back home to family in MO. Arraignment in a few days. still havent gotten the letter from the MO DMV to suspend my license, it has been a month now since my arrest.
I assume you had a MO driver's license when you got pulled over. It is much more complicated then just saying when...
I live in MO but was ordered to get an interlock device installed for a KS DUI i got in 2010. Do I have to get it?
I live in MO and have all my life. In December of 2010 i got a DUI in KS. I was given probation for a year no license for a year and now they want me to put an interlock device on my car. Since I live in MO and have a valid drivers license do I have to get the device installed?
If MO doesn't require it, and if you don't ever intend to drive in KS, no.
License going to be Suspended soon
I plead no contest to a dui charge in December of 2011 in Kansas (dui arrest was back in 2008, and I have had a valid license since 2008 due to improper paperwork by the officer). At the time of the arrest I had a KS driver's license. Since then I had moved to Missouri and obtained a Valid new license in the state I currently reside. Will my license become suspended in the new state (MO) after Kansas suspends my license? Will I legally be able to drive with my valid current MO license? I just want to make sure I do everything correct and legally, I don't want to be driving on a suspended license and want to put this behind me.
Kansas can suspend your right to drive in Kansas. Missouri is supposed to respect Kansas's revocation and to revoke...
DWI warrant from 2001 in Springfield MO. Have had others since. What will happen when Springfield DWI is taken care of?
Zero tolerance in 1999. DWI with refusal to blow in 2006, 2008, 2010. 2010 was class D felony conviction with 7 year sentence serving 120 days in prison/treatment. Will that affect the sentencing/penalty for the 2001 DWI when it is taken care of? What could happen and what do you recommend? Thanks
With your record, I hope the cop has retired. Was the ticket a city or state charge? You need a lawyer. Take in your...
Can a drug admission at a hospital be strong enough to be used against you in court?
A good friend of mine recently got himself into trouble. He was operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (not on alcohol), and when he crashed (not terribly bad accident just fender bender) he was taken out of the car, cuffed, sat on the sidewalk and talked to for a bit, and then taken to a hospital. Apparently he wasn't actually arrested since when he left the hospital there was no bail and he ended up going straight home (had to have a sober ride pick him up). While he was in the hospital however, apparently he admitted to taking a drug earlier that day before the accident and it states he admitted this in a hospital document. We are wondering if this could be used against him in court to turn his charge into a DWI?
Admissions can be used against him if the city subpoenas the medical person to testify at a trial. His blood work...
