Missouri new "petition the court for driving privilege reinstatement" law? Does it apply to me?
I received my 2nd dwi in 08. Served my 5 yr revocation plus one yr for driving while suspended. 2 months before I was eligible for reinstatement missouri law changed stating I had to petition the court where the offense occured (by lawyer) , install a iid that carries a higher maintenance rate and other things making it more costly and difficult to get it back. Do the changes apply to me. Can the court help me and can and how do I petition them myself?
If you go to the Missouri Department of Revenue website, you will find instructions on how to petition the appropriate...
Do I report a marijuana possession charge to the FAA?
I was not driving and it was my first offense. No license suspension or DUI was given.
In what context do you think they might need to know? Are you applying for a job with the FAA? A pilot's license?...
What is the severity that can be charged upon a minor with a Felony?
I'm 17 and I got arrested back in June, I spent a night in jail too. I was intoxicated while driving and I had alcohol, as well as my mom's prescription pills(two Xanex pills) in my car when I was arrested. I got a lawyer in hopes of getting a clean record again. But recently my lawyer notified me that I might be getting charged with a felony(for the pills) and I would have to serve up to 120 days in prison. I don't meet with my lawyer for a few days, and when I do my mom is going to tell him than that they pills are hers. She had proof since she kept her Xanex bottle. I was wondering if they can they punish a minor like myself with such severity? I have yet to attend a court date, my previous one got cancelled and I am just trying to anticipate what could happen. Thank you for your time
Given that you are a minor, your case should be filed in the Juvenile court. I need to know whether your case is filed...
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...

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...
DUI Diversion Revocation hearing
I was cited for DUI in 2015, no prior record. I completed the diversion program (1 year stint) without incident. 79 days after I had completed said diversion I received a letter in the mail stating my diversion was being revoked due to a police report in which the officer states I was a witness to an event at a bar. Nearly 3 years after my DUI citation and over a year after my completed diversion I am attending a evidentiary hearing to refute this report (innocent & was not at bar or drinking). I graduate with an MBA in December, if revoked and charged this will have extremely detrimental effects on my life, career, education etc. IF revoked am I sentenced for DUI on the spot, or will I have time to appeal evidentiary hearing, plead non-guilty to original dui and set for trial, etc?
Hire an attorney. You have too much to lose to handle this on your own.
