Missouri police recently arrested a woman who they say caused a fatal, head-on collision. She was allegedly intoxicated at the time of the accident and is now facing DWI charges. This is apparently not her first drunk driving related offense, which could potentially effect her current criminal charges.
For years, it was very difficult for a convicted criminal in Missouri to get that conviction removed from their record, no matter how trivial or old the conviction.
Driving home from a holiday party, you commit a minor traffic violation, and an officer pulls you over in Missouri. After noticing signs of intoxication, you consent to a breath test and face a DWI arrest. You know that penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol prove strict if convicted, and you worry about how your life will change following a DWI arrest.
Being involved in a car accident is a stressful event. Unfortunately, a person still recovering from the shock of an accident often finds him- or herself facing questions from law enforcement officials. Because of physical injuries and the emotional response, those in such a situation may not be fully cognizant of the implications of the information they provide. In fact, a man in Missouri now faces drug charges after he was involved in a car accident.
