Why Fight a Drunk Driving Charge?
Even a first DWI is not without consequences. The penalties can include points on your driver’s license, increased car insurance rates, jail time, fines, community service and license suspension.
A second offence DWI conviction may result in additional points on your license, mandatory jail time or increased community service, up to a five year suspension of your license.
Third or subsequent offenses for DWI may result in felony charges. Depending on the severity of your charge, you may be required to complete probation, required community service hours and a jail sentence. More importantly, you could be a convicted felon for the rest of your life. In short, the stakes are much higher than most think.
Many of these penalties can affect your livelihood if you drive for a living, your ability to get to work or attend school and the amount you need to pay for insurance. Our Springfield, Missouri based DWI attorneys know what is best for you and work to find the most favorable outcome possible.
