Platte City Law

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 don't think missouri recognizes this as a felony so how can an apartment complex deny living rights if this dui was not a felony in missouri?
What the state of Missouri does (or doesn't do) is irrelevant. As long as they don't violate the law (say, by...
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.
I would like to know if this is something a good lawyer could work through to get the first charge removed and changing a DUI 3 felony to a DUI 2 misdemeanor.
Could it happen? It's possible but if you are facing a Felony DWI you need to consult with an experienced criminal...
Is being local and knowing the prosecuting attorneys and the court critical in this type of case?
My opinion has always been that, when dealing with an offense as serious as even a first-offense DWI, let alone a...
