For some individuals, admitting that they need help for a substance abuse problem can be difficult. Unfortunately, it may take some parties finding themselves in very serious situations before they are able to see just how much of an issue there really is. One such situation could be when a driver is charged with DWI. Such charges can come with severe consequences, and there are various ways for a person to handle the allegations.
A school board member in Missouri recently opted for a plea bargain after being charged with driving while intoxicated. It was reported that the charge was leveled against him in March of this year. The details of how the charge came about were not disclosed in this recent report regarding the outcome of the criminal proceedings, so it is unclear whether a breath test or other sobriety tests were administered.
