Switched to driver seat in gas station parking lot.

The officer went straight to asking if I had been drinking, said no. She asked for insurance etc. my license is suspended. Owner of car was in front seat.. I refused breathalyzer, and when booked UA, AND BA refusal. They were not able to obtain in time with warrant. I do have a lawyer. But he has not really spoken with me about the outcome. I understand I will lose my license for a year because of refusal, however I do not understand what will happen from here on out. Please help me understand what (if any) choices I have from here on out and what process that might entail!!!!

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.
I got a DUI 8 years ago, do i still put it on job applications?
I got a DUI in Arkansas in 2007 and convicted in 2008. I need to know if I should put that down on a job application.

What is admissible as probable cause?
I have a DUI pending but the probable cause listed is my medical records from a previous hospital visit earlier in the week stating I had been drinking. Is there a time limit they have to abide by when using my medical records? Doesn't the hospital have to inform me if they've released these records to anyone?
Do you mean to ask what is admissible evidence in a probably cause hearing or would this constitute probably cause?
I got a second DWI in Missouri- what are my consequences?
I received my first dwi in April 2014. The police filed my paperwork wrong and it doesn't show up on my record. My lawyer stopped calling because he said he doesn't want to bring attention to it. I got my second DWI Saturday (May 2015) although the cop never saw me driving. My car fell into a ditch in front of my house and I was out side of the car looking at the damage. He happened to drive by as I was looking at the tire. I refused to blow and was booked and placed in a 12 hour hold. What kind of punishment are we looking at here? Jail was the worst experience of my life, I want to avoid it if possible.
Contact a local DUI lawyer for a free consultation. The consequences will vary depending on if they file your first...

My roommate got a DWI in Kansas about two years ago. He got a second one this past weekend in Missouri.
Did the first one transfer over to Missouri? Will he be considered a second time offender? How long will his license be suspended most likely? If his license is suspended will the court make exceptions to allow him to drive to work or will me or someone else have to drive him?
All DUI convictions will be counted regardless of the state that it was committed in, so yes he will be considered a...
