License revocation is going to be a year for refusing to take the breath test. Can I get limited driving privileges after 90 days without the ignition interlock device. State of MO
You will need to have the ignition interlock installed. Refer to Missouri Revised Statutes Chapter 309.302 for guidance....
I pled guilty to a DWI in Town & Country Municipal Court and received a "SIS". Does that count as a "criminal charge" if employment application asks about criminal charges?
Yes, but if the probation is over I would look at the question closely. If it asks if you have been convicted of a...
I was charged with a 3rd dwi that did result in an accident. No one was hurt and I did not blow...my first two offenses were dropped to carless and imprudent driving and from what I understand the officer is asking the judge to charge me with a misdemeanor charge as opposed to a felony. What is likely to happen as far as punishment? Also when applying for jobs do I need to check yes or no for a felony conviction?

If convicted of class B felony DWI in Missouri are they eligible for DWI court given there is a mandatory two yr sentence in DOC
Most DWI courts require the conviction to be a felony. However, if the charge is a class B felony statute number 577.010 states that the offender must serve two years in prison before probation or parole is granted.

On a certain application it asks,"have you ever been convicted of a crime, or received a suspended imposition or execution of sentence for a crime in the last seven years?"

That's a good question. Part of what the employer can find out depends on what database(s) they search. At a minimum,...
I refused to blow, but was charged with my second DWI anyway. Because of the refusal the six months I was required to have the ignition interlock has stretched to an additional nine months, because of technicalities. I have already completed 7 months with no violations, paid all my fines and completed all my classes. I really want to get on with my life and having the interlock for another 9 months seems beyond excessive. Should I hire an attorney to petition the DMV on my behalf for early removal?
I would need to know your complete driving record to advise you on removal, however, I can tell you that hiring an...
