What Are The Consequences?
In the state of Missouri, multiple prior alcohol-related offenses are necessary to be classified as a felon. In this case, it does not matter if you plead guilty or served probation for the prior charges or not — you will still be charged with a felony if you have been charged twice in the past.
Missouri law imposes serious consequences for DUI, particularly on repeat offenders. You will lose your license for at least five years, but possibly for the rest of your life, depending on how many prior convictions you have. You could spend 15 years in prison for your second DWI offense.
It is important that you talk to experienced DWI lawyers to prepare a felony DWI defense to protect your future rights and interests. Charges for felony DWI are worth fighting.
Seeking Dismissal or Acquittal
We appreciate the seriousness of a felony DUI or DWI charge and will leave no stone unturned in your defense. Our first step is to ensure your release from custody by securing bail or bond. We aim to find the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and to obtain a dismissal or an acquittal in courtrooms throughout Missouri.
Our lawyers will thoroughly investigate every aspect of your case, critically evaluating police reports and all the components of the blood-alcohol test or Breathalyzer procedure and results. We will review whether there was probable cause for arrest and whether you were properly afforded other constitutional protections.
We also handle the fallout related to the refusal of blood or breath tests and represent clients who hold commercial driver’s licenses to help them avoid suspension and retain driving privileges.
