    For the 14th year in a row, Missouri's annual Traffic Enforcement Report, released earlier this month, shows there is racial disparity in traffic stops by police across the state. The growing disparity - a "disturbing trend," according to Attorney General Chris Koster, at the highest level since 2000 - is causing statewide concern.

Can I be charged with an MIP without a ticket or citation?
I was at a small party, with maybe 15 people. I drank a beer, and just took a few sips out of a second when the cops show up. Some people ran and tried to hide, but I sat down in their clear view and stayed calm. I was respectful and honest the entire time. All he took down was my name and birthday, and he asked if I was 21, my response was no. The follow up question, was if I had been drinking, and I said yes. After a while, everyone felt natures call, and the officer was patting people down before they could use the restroom, but when I went he said "Hey bud, you haven't given me a reason not to trust you. Some of those other guys have been trying to flush stuff down the toilet. As long as you don't have anything on you, you're good." A few hours go by, and he starts to breathalyze everyone. When I go up I tell him that I had full intentions of spending the night at the house, and showed that my car keys weren't on me. The officer had me go sit back down, and he tested everyone else. I did take the breathalyzer at the very end, but he never told me what I blew. He asked if I was spending the night, or calling a ride. But right after he said that, he pointed to my friend, and said "he's 0.00 if you want he can drive your car for you.". When everything was said and done, one person was arrested, but no tickets or citations were issued. The highest ranking officer said some of us should expect letters from the prosecuter. Will I recieve a letter, and/or an MIP?

Coming up on the end of my 5 Year license suspension for DWI. In Missouri I have seen that you need to file a petition?
Do I need to file a petition against the State in order to be able to get my license back or is it "time served"?
You have to file a action in court. It is not automatic. You need an attorney as well.

Should I get a lawyer for my charge of driving with a revoked license?
I was arrested for driving with a revoked license. This is my first offense for driving with a revoked license. However, my license was revoked for a DWI and possession of a small amount of marijuana (under a gram), both of which I was convicted of in August of last year in Callaway County. I've done a little research, and I've found that jail time seems to be a likely outcome. So I am curious as to whether I should seek legal representation, since serving any amount of time would lead to me losing my job and make an already difficult family financial situation much worse.
I am not licensed in Missouri, so out of respect for any experienced attorney licensed in Missouri who respond to your...
