How can I check the status of a pending DUI?
I live in Illinois a few miles east of St Louis,MO and about a month ago I was pulled over in Blue Springs, MO (a few miles from Kansas City, MO). I was charged with speeding, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, and DUI. With that kind of distance (250 miles), I cannot appear in court. I did not take a breathalyzer or blood alcohol test. I also recently took a job where I am driving a company vehicle and cannot have this on my record. What can I do to make all of these go away?
You're going to need to hire an attorney in MO.
