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...

DWI, IID Court Ordered Question About Vehicle Requirement
My husband has a DWI offense conviction. He won the administrative hearing in Missouri, no license suspension or revocation. Not on Limited Driving or Restricted Driving Privileges. Court ordered IID on any vehicle he operates as part of probation. We have two cars, his name is on both Titles (cannot just be my name alone on my car due to credit). Will they expect two IIDs, one on each car even though he will be driving only the one car?
That depends on what the order said. For example, in NY it is owns or operates. Therefore it would be both cars. You...
My MO son got 2 DUIs in Iowa while attending college there . . . there seems to be double charges between the two states.
In Iowa his license was suspended for 2 years, he served a 3-day jail sentence, did community service, met with a probation officer for 1 1/2 years, and attended mandated alcohol education classes and alcoholics anonymous meetings. He successfully completed all of the requirements, got an excellent job in MO and moved there. He has since been a model citizen, gotten two job promotions and left all alcohol problems behind. When he went to renew his license in MO he was told that it had been suspended for 5 years even though all his requirements had been successfully completed for IA. He now has no way to drive to work (which recently moved across the border to KS and may complicate things more). Isn't this a double penalty for something he did in IA and completed his sentence for?
Most states now report driving infractions to the driver's home state. The home state imposes a suspension pursuant to...
