First DUI. Happened to be on a suspended license. 23years of age. Refusal of ALL test. Wondering about court proceedings?
Switched to driver seat in gas station parking lot. There was an officer parked slightly behind building ( no to my knowledge) WHen pulling out of the parking lot, without driving more then 50 feet, was pulled over. The officer went straight to asking if I had been drinking, said no. She asked for insurance etc. my license is suspended. Owner of car was in front seat.. I refused breathalyzer, and when booked UA, AND BA refusal. They were not able to obtain in time with warrant. I do have a lawyer. But he has not really spoken with me about the outcome. I understand I will lose my license for a year because of refusal, however I do not understand what will happen from here on out. Please help me understand what (if any) choices I have from here on out and what process that might entail!!!!
I recommend that you immediately contact a local attorney in Platte City MO who specializes in criminal defense. Use...
I got a second DWI in Missouri- what are my consequences?
I received my first dwi in April 2014. The police filed my paperwork wrong and it doesn't show up on my record. My lawyer stopped calling because he said he doesn't want to bring attention to it. I got my second DWI Saturday (May 2015) although the cop never saw me driving. My car fell into a ditch in front of my house and I was out side of the car looking at the damage. He happened to drive by as I was looking at the tire. I refused to blow and was booked and placed in a 12 hour hold. What kind of punishment are we looking at here? Jail was the worst experience of my life, I want to avoid it if possible.

Registering vehicle after DUI forfeiture in new state residence
My vehicle was forfeited in my DUI case a year ago and my car sat in my bank auction facility for 3 months. They contacted me and asked me if I wanted the car back. I asked my lawyer if I should and his reply was " if the bank is giving you your car back, I suggest doing so" I paid some fees, retrieved the vehicle and its been 60 days since I shipped it to my new home state I havent received any letters or communication from my home state. I had the vehicle shipped to my new state, so my question is, since it was a repossession title, when I register it in my new state, what will happen, if anything at all. I also will need to get it set up on interlock, reporting to my home state. I still have the original title, and the bank issued a new "secured interest" title.
It is not clear from the information what some of the issues are. A car title can be used to register the car in any...
My roommate got a DWI in Kansas about two years ago. He got a second one this past weekend in Missouri.
Did the first one transfer over to Missouri? Will he be considered a second time offender? How long will his license be suspended most likely? If his license is suspended will the court make exceptions to allow him to drive to work or will me or someone else have to drive him?
All DUI convictions will be counted regardless of the state that it was committed in, so yes he will be considered a...
