Missouri man may hope to avoid suspended license

When a person is found in an odd situation, authorities may believe that some sort of impairment likely led to the event. As a result, a party could potentially be taken into custody for DWI until authorities are better able to determine the exact cause of the circumstances. If an individual is formally charged with DWI, a conviction could potentially lead to a suspended license. However, if a party believes they are innocent in such a situation, they may wish to defend against any allegations.

A man in Missouri was recently taken into the custody for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. The situation reportedly began when a woman driving along the roadway saw a man lying on the side of the road. When she stopped, she apparently saw that the man was naked, and authorities arrived on the scene soon after.

If needed, Missouri man may wish to consider DWI expungement

If a person makes the mistake of driving after consuming alcohol, it could possibly be a decision that they sincerely regret. That regret may be even stronger if that individual is involved in a car accident that injures another party. As a result of such an accident, a person could possibly be charged with DWI, and if convicted, he may wish to look into DWI expungement for the future.

A man in Missouri could possibly consider such an option, depending on the outcome of his current situation. According to reports, the man was involved in a car accident that resulted in the injury of another driver. The man reportedly failed to maintain the proper lane, and as a result, collided with the side of another vehicle. The man was not injured, but the female driver of the other vehicle was transported to the hospital for injuries.

Missouri man could face revoked driver's license after crash

If a car accident results in no injuries or only minor injuries, everyone involved may consider themselves lucky. However, if a driver is suspected of having been intoxicated at the time of the crash, that individual could still face a difficult situation. Being charged with DWI could lead to a number of different outcomes, including the potential for a revoked driver's license.

A 61-year-old man in Missouri could be hoping to avoid such an outcome after he was involved in a crash and suspected of DWI. Reports state that a vehicle was traveling south when it was hit almost head on by the vehicle that the male suspect was allegedly driving. It was also reported that two female teens in that southbound vehicle and the driver of the other vehicle suffered minor injuries as a result of the collision.

Missouri high school coach may look to avoid a suspended license

Authorities often conduct random sobriety checkpoints in order to check a significant number of vehicles for impaired drivers. If an individual is believed to be intoxicated, that driver could face DWI charges and potentially a suspended license if a conviction occurs. In order to avoid such an outcome, an individual may wish to present a defense in the hopes of maintaining their innocence.

A high school football coach in Missouri may be looking into his defense options after being charged for allegedly driving while intoxicated. It was reported that the arrest took place after the driver was stopped at a checkpoint. Authorities at the scene allegedly smelled alcohol on the driver, and then conducted a breath test. It was not reported what the results of that breath test were, but the driver was taken into custody.

Missouri holiday DWI checkpoints could lead to suspended license

With the Fourth of July only days away, many Missouri residents are likely looking forward to barbeques and fireworks. Families and friends often get together to celebrate the nation’s independence and enjoy each other’s company. During these get-togethers, individuals may also consume alcohol. If they do, it is important that they understand that they could potentially face a suspended license if they get behind the wheel while intoxicated.

Missouri law enforcement is conducting traffic stops during the Fourth of July weekend. It was reported that the increased enforcement will begin July 3 at 6 p.m. and carry through July 6. There will be 78 hours in which the authorities will be counting DWI offenses as part of the Fourth of July holiday time frame. This period is shorter than last year’s 102 hours.

New procedure in Missouri could affect breath test refusal

In some instances, when an individual is stopped by authorities due to suspicion that the driver may be under the influence, that driver may decline to submit to a breath test. Breath test refusal can come with immediate penalties, but it could also potentially take away a key piece of evidence for prosecutors. However, authorities may still get a warrant for a blood sample, and due to recent changes, it could become easier to obtain such a warrant.

In Missouri, some officers may now have the ability to receive blood test warrants digitally. This means that the process for gaining such a warrant can take place almost immediately as opposed to printing the correct forms and having a judge sign off on them. Where such warrants were typically not used as often due to the long process, this immediate access means that more officers will likely utilize the warrants if a driver refuses a breath test.

No evidence of alcohol in alleged Missouri fatal DWI accident

Many individuals may not feel that pleading guilty to allegations is a good idea. However, they may be unaware of potential bargains that could possibly help lead to a lesser sentence if a court accepts the plea bargain. Though this route may not be for everyone, an individual who has been charged in what authorities believe to be a fatal DWI accident may wish to take advantage of such a deal.

A man in Missouri has recently pleaded guilty in a similar situation. Reports state that the man was involved in a car accident that killed a 4-year-old boy and injured a 10-year-old boy. The man also reportedly left the scene of the accident.

Single-car accident leads to felony DWI charges in Missouri

When the authorities come across a single-car accident, they may already begin to make assumptions about what may have happened. However, it is important that they give the individuals involved in the crash an unbiased investigation. If authorities believe that a person was intoxicated after examining and interviewing the driver involved, that party could face charges, including felony DWI.

A Missouri man has found himself in a similar situation after a recent accident. Reports indicate that the alleged driver of a vehicle had left the roadway and struck a guardrail. As a result, damage was sustained by both the vehicle and the railing. The accident reportedly took place after midnight, and it is unclear how authorities became alerted to the incident.

Missouri man sentenced in fatal DWI accident

When a person goes through criminal proceedings due to being charged with a serious crime, they are likely hoping to avoid a conviction. Unfortunately, the initial trial that they may go through after a fatal DWI accident may not end with their desired results. However, an individual may be able to appeal the outcome of a case if they believe that they could achieve a better result.

A man in Missouri may be looking into appeal options after he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and second degree assault in relation to a fatal accident. Reports stated that the accident occurred when the man allegedly failed to maintain the proper lane and crashed into another vehicle. It was not noted what the levels of alleged intoxication were at the time of the accident.

Woman faces felony DWI charges in Missouri after single-car crash

It is a very unfortunate situation when individuals have an alcohol addiction. This problem can lead to serious negative repercussions if they are unable to keep their alcohol consumption under control. For some individuals, this problem could lead to felony DWI charges due to having multiple DWI convictions. If individuals are found to have such allegations leveled against them, they may wish to check on options for entering rehabilitation.

A woman in Missouri may wish to look for such an option as she was recently charged with DWI. Reports indicate that authorities were alerted to a single-car accident that reportedly involved a vehicle leaving the roadway, hitting a tree and flipping. The driver was allegedly a 30-year-old female.
