In the state of Missouri, a first DWI offense is usually considered a Class B misdemeanor. However, charges may be elevated if certain aggravating circumstances were involved such as an accident involving injuries.
Typically, the penalties for a first offense include possible license suspensions, points on your driving record, fines, and potentially even jail time.
How Can a DWI Lawyer Help?
There are several ways that an experienced attorney can help you if you are confronted with a first time DWI. After your arrest, you may be asked to submit to a breath or blood test, and your results will influence whether you will face charges for driving while intoxicated. Even if you took this test and the results were well above the legal limit, there are ways that a St. Charles DWI lawyer can challenge the manner in which the test was conducted and even the accuracy of the breath test machine itself. There are many ways to challenge BAC tests as well as the field sobriety tests.
