When an individual has been accused of a crime, it is important that that party understands his or her situation. Because various circumstances of an alleged event can come into play, an individual may wish to know how the details of his or her case will affect the situation. If a party has been taken into custody for allegedly drinking and driving and is considered a repeat DWI offender, his or her situation may be carried out differently than a first time offender.
One man in Missouri was recently taken into custody for allegedly driving while intoxicated, and his previous record may come into play. It was reported that the man was purportedly behind the wheel of a vehicle that was stopped on the roadway. Authorities reportedly approached the vehicle and allegedly determined that the driver had passed out with the vehicle still in gear.
