I have a dwi in Jackson county mo and property damages. Tickets were written by sheriff dept. I thought my lawyer was handling everything till I got worried and went to courthouse to find out details on property damage, costs fines etc. come to find out he missed court date and now I have warrant out. What recourse do I have against him ? I have paid all his costs and now get no return call from him. What can I do??
Do everything you can to contact your current attorney. Go to his or her office if you need to. It's possible that...
DUI charged in Nevada, moved back home to family in MO. Arraignment in a few days. still havent gotten the letter from the MO DMV to suspend my license, it has been a month now since my arrest.
I assume you had a MO driver's license when you got pulled over. It is much more complicated then just saying when...
I live in MO and have all my life. In December of 2010 i got a DUI in KS. I was given probation for a year no license for a year and now they want me to put an interlock device on my car. Since I live in MO and have a valid drivers license do I have to get the device installed?
If MO doesn't require it, and if you don't ever intend to drive in KS, no.

I was arrested for DUI in Florida. I was not in the vehicle nor did I have the keys in my possession when the officer arrived at the accident. My wife said I was driving but only saw the vehicle leaving the parking lot and me crawling out of the drivers window. She never actually saw me driving. I refused all testing including providing a breath sample. The officer took my license and told me my license would be suspended for a year. Everything I have read about the Interstate Drivers License Compact says Missouri will only suspend my license for conviction of DUI. Is this correct or should I fight the suspension. If I need to fight it which state do I need to do that in? I was issued a ten day temp permit for Florida, but Missouri issues 15 day permits, do I have 10 or 15 days to drive?
I'm not licensed to practice law in Florida, but it sounds like you have only 10 days to drive on your permit in...
A few years back I had a less than upstanding roomate. Long story short he is in prison for multiple counts of felony burglary. I was very cooperative with law in for cement about the situation but ended up getting several felony charges myself. Well long story short I took a plea bargain and got an SIS. I am on probation and have to pay restitution, since he cannot. The prosecutor told me after I pay and am off probation these convictions "go away". Is this true? I can still vote and everything but obviously can't purchase a firearm.
If you received an SIS for a felony and you successfully complete probation, pay restitution, and do anything else that...
In the 1990s I received two DWI arrests. How do I find out if they resulted in an SIS or Diversion? I never had to see a probation officer or drop a U.A. but did attenc SATOP on both.
Call the court clerk in the court where this happened and ask.
