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...

How will my SIS for a DWI appear and impact future employment?
I was arrested in 2014, and sentenced an SIS in 2015 so I have not been convicted or charged with a crime. I currently am working on seeking new employement for the first time since this instance. The potential new employer is conducting a background check. I have been advised not to be forthcoming with what they may find upon this check and play my odds. From what I understand they will see a traffic stop with arrest and no other charges or convictions. The position is for a licensed client specialist position through an insurance company, does this mean they will conduct a government background check? Also is anyone familiar with an abbreviated background check? If this is what they conduct and they are only looking for felony and possession charges is there a chance they won’t even see my arrest?
First off I want to make clear that anything I say here is based upon the limited information that you have provided....
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...
Can a person get released from probation early?
I was sentenced to 30 days in jail, various fines, which I have paid and 2 years probation in Iowa for my 2nd DUI. I live in Missouri so it was transferred to Missouri. I have been on probation since January 2017. I have lost a very good job because I have had to miss so much work due to her having me take extra substance abuse classes . I live in an area where it is very hard to find a job and I have a master plumbers license and was in the process of starting my own business in Kansas City but had to put that on hold. Iowa probation won't talk to me because they don't want a triangle so I must deal with Missouri only. Missouri has a rule that you get 30 days off for 30 days good which means I should be able to get off probation in Jan. 2018 but she told me today it doesn't pertain to me since I was sentenced in Iowa. This probation officer is the rudest person and will not answer questions or guide me in anything. She does things her way she tells me and that's the way it is. Can I hire a lawyer and get off probation early or is it impossible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You may hire a lawyer, but the only one who determines how long your Probation will last is the Judge and the Judge...
