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...
First offense dwi and refused to take the breath test. Lawyer has the dwi case dismissed and reduced to careless driving. 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 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?
You really need to hire an attorney as soon as possible. From the facts as you present them, you are not yet convicted...
In 1992 I was arrested for 1st and only DWI. I got SIS with probation, traffic school and counseling, all completed to court's satisfaction. So no DWI conviction shows, but the state still shows an administrative license suspension for DWI even though it was 22 years ago. I've been told it should have dropped from the record after 10 years with no more similar charges, but it didn't. I'm a driver by trade, and it has been an issue with some job applications. Court acts as though I need to have an attorney ask to have it removed. True?
Unfortunately many actions I the courts go much more smoothly with counsel. Hire an attorney and get it done.

Am I able to favorable win a DUI case in missouri if I have 2 Priors and I did not blow or do field tests
When I was arrestted I was exiting my vehicle, I had just spilled a soda inside my new car and I was pulling into a Walgreens in order to clean up the mess this was around 3. a.m. The officer said he was following me and came up to me as I was exiting my vehicle he told me to halt and then he arrested me. I will admit I was not very cooperative at first. He did not advise me why I was being arrested until I was already at the jail. He did not mention a dui until he had seen my priors. The case is nearing disposition and the Prosecutor is offering DUI alternative court as a plea bargain. All the plea offers including this option may result in extreme hardship and loss of employement. Since there is no proof of my intoxication other than the officer can I win this at a trial?
Now we know your version of events, but we still need the cops version. NO COMPETENT attorney will tell you what...
I received a DWI Chemical Refusal 8 years ago also.
It depends on how the application question reads. Don't forget a charge is merely an accusation. Further, I do not...
