Understanding What You Face
A third or subsequent DWI conviction is classified as a felony. Missouri judges have a lot of discretion when sentencing people for drunk driving, but in general, the following penalties apply to multiple DWI offenders:
- Third DUI in 10 years: Class D felony possibly resulting in a fine of up to $5,000; a 10-year revocation of your driver’s license; a prison term of up to five years; no hardship license allowed; ignition interlock device installed on vehicle.
- Fourth DUI in 10 years: Class C felony possibly resulting in a $5,000 fine; up to seven years in prison; 10-year driver’s license revocation.
- Five (or more) DUIs: Class B felony possibly resulting in a 15-year prison sentence, with two years mandatory; up to $5,000 in fines; permanent loss of your driver’s license.
Revoked/Suspended License After a Felony DWI Conviction
A felony DWI conviction will result in a 10-year license revocation, no matter how long ago your prior convictions were. During the suspension you are not eligible for a hardship license. Obviously, the lack of a license can greatly disrupt your life and impair your ability to work. The license suspension and criminal penalties combined can be overwhelming.
We understand how to fight the administrative license issues and the criminal charges. We will examine your prior convictions, evaluate the chemical testing equipment and utilize any other defense strategies that may be available. We do not want your past to come back to haunt you.
