Missouri man suspected of DUI with children in the car

Police officers often have a strong desire to hold those who may be driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol accountable for their actions. While this desire is understandable, it can lead to assumptions about a person suspected of a crime. In fact, a man in Missouri now faces criminal charges after police accused him of DUI and speeding with children in the vehicle.

The incident that led to the man's arrest reportedly happened during the evening hours of a day in October. According to police officers, the man was traveling 40 mph over the speed limit on a Missouri interstate. Once stopped, police say they realized there were three children in the vehicle with him.

Reports also claim that members of the State Highway Patrol detected the smell of alcohol on his breath. Troopers reportedly performed field sobriety tests. Though they say that the man failed the tests, further details on his performance are unclear as is his blood alcohol content at the time.

In addition to being suspected of DUI, the man is charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of a child. Unfortunately, the decisions that he is now facing could potentially impact his personal, professional and financial well-being for the rest of his life. Despite the allegations made by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the man is presumed innocent; unless there is sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, he cannot be convicted. Many people who have found themselves in a similar situation have opted to seek advice from an attorney with experience with the process who can ensure they are prepared to make informed decisions.
