Is there a way to not have an IID installed after a 10 year denile?
I was charged with a misdemeanor DUI in early 2008, it was later dropped and re-filed as a class D felony DUI. I was convicted and had to do only probation with no fines or any other actions. The state reissued my license after the misdemeanor was dropped and had no other action against me until I went to renew 5 years later and decided that they should have issued a denial. On the "bright side" they said that is was retroactive to the original date and I could get it re-instated in 2018. I was in the process of getting a hardship license when I was transferred to another state for work and have been driving here legally because the denial is only in Missouri. I have been in no other trouble but a lot has happened in the 10 years and I have become an ordained minister and am being offered a church back in Missouri when the pastor retires in mid-2018 and will be moving back. I have no issue going through the legal process to obtain my reinstatement and I do not hide my past from anyone but visitations, meetings and lunches may be awkward with a pastor that has to blow into an IID so was wondering if this can be argued or if it is set in stone. Thank you
First, how did you get a valid license in your new state? Almost all states require you to get your old state's license...
How can my fiance get his license back?
I am asking for my fiance, over seven years ago he got a DUI in Arizona, impaired to the slightest degree. After all these years he is trying to get his license here in Missouri. The DUI is the one and only mark of his record. And the DMV is telling him he is on the national registry and will have to contact them for further information. Will he still have to get an ignition interlock device? Or is there any way around that, it was his first and only offense has been years ago.
He needs to contact Arizona and see what he needs to reinstate his license there. Once it is reinstated he should be...
I got a DWI 1st offense and I had my daughter in the car. Now cps is involved and I'm freaking out.
I have never been in trouble before. I blew twice the legal limit... And now cps has been to my house one time but says they will be back this week. The cop that arrested me told me he just charged me with a misdemeanor DWI BC I was cooperative. Why is cps involved ? Why are they coming back this week ? Am I going to lose my child ?

What's the possibility of jail time for 2nd dwi while on felony probation?
So I am on felony probation and I obtained my 2nd dwi and my probation officer is revoking my probation. I am curious as to the possibility of doing my back up time or what else would I get?
You need to look at the DWI laws in your state, to begin with. In Washington, a second DWI automatically requires jail...
My license has been suspended for 10 years due to DWIs. Am I eligible to get my license renewed sooner?
I made terrible decisions and received 4 dwis within a 2 month span. I had no prior convictions and none since. It has now been 5 years. I hired a lawyer for my first dwi and it was removed from my record. The other 3 I had a public defender and they were all grouped together because they were so close in time. I was charged with a class B misdemeanor for all 3. I completed shock time, community service, supervised probation, and a 28 day inpatient rehab program. I completed all well within the time allotted and completed my probation without any incidents.
In Missouri, driving privileges are "denied" for 10 years upon a third conviction for DWI (also BAC and DUID). For a 10-...
Hardship license/revoked license
I lost my license due to a DWI and driving while licenses suspended for not paying fines. I received a hardship license on 10/21. On 10/31 a notice was sent to the state for failure to pay non compliance Suspension notice issued. What does this mean? Casenet also shows judge/clerk note proposed compliance. I have not received anything via mail and am not sure if my hardship license has been suspended.
You can call the Missouri Dept. of Revenue (Driver's License Bureau) in Jefferson City MO and they can tell you if your...
Is it a standard practice to conduct FST so close to the dash camera that it is unable to record the DWI investigation?
I'm facing a DWI criminal charge in the State of Missouri. I was stopped for speeding by a MSHP Trooper on the interstate. He failed to capture the all of the FST on his dash camera in an empty parking lot. All that is visible on the video footage is my waste and stomach. The audio of the footage is very difficult to hear. In the police report he documents that I only had "blood shot eyes, no swaying more than 2 inches side-to-side while in flip flops, and positive for nystagmus". I did relocate my vehicle into a empty parking lot to perform the tests at his request and was informed that I will be recorded during the roadside FST. I work with the MSHP indirectly by providing emergency medical treatment for those involved in motor vehicle collisions and perform blood draws at their request. I informed him about my line of work after he had me walk to his patrol car to run my DL via radio and his laptop. The audio recordings contradict his written statements. He returned to the jail several hours later to talk to me about the situation and our line of work after I had made suicidal statements due to work stress. I feel his investigation is too vague for prosecution from my experience
Normally, I would advise people to hire an attorney. But it sounds like you feel confident handling this on your own....
