Missouri DWI and Kansas DUI Defense
If you are arrested and charged for DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) in Missouri or DUI (Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs) in Kansas you must act quickly to preserve your rights by requesting an administrative hearing or your driver’s license may be automatically suspended for 30 days, 90 days, a year or longer (depending on the State), whether you refused a breath test, and if you have prior DWI/DUI’s.
Being arrested for DWI/DUI is not only embarrassing, receiving a conviction for DWI/DUI can have long-term effects on your criminal record, your job, your professional license, your reputation, and your ability to drive. Bad things happen to good people. If you are convicted of DWI/DUI, you face the possibility of heavy fines, jail time, and a multitude of court orders and other burdensome requirements. Attorney Lance Bond understands that being arrested creates an enormous and immediate strain on your personal and professional life. Lance will try to ease the stress and uncertainty by walking you through the entire process, from beginning to end, and keep you informed about the status of your case every step of the way.
DWI/DUI have two components that must be handled at the same time: First, is the administrative portion related to your driver’s license (mentioned above); second, is the criminal case filed against you by the prosecutor. Attorney Lance Bond is licensed to practice DWI/DUI defense in both Missouri and Kansas and will immediately begin working on your defense and preserving your rights.
Just because an officer conducts field sobriety testing, gives you a “breath test”, and arrests you for DWI/DUI does not necessarily mean you were in fact DWI/DUI! There are many factors such as fatigue, injuries, medications, dental work, age, weight, illness, and disease that can give the false impression of DWI/DUI. The prosecutor must prove the criminal portion of your case “beyond a reasonable doubt”. Beyond a reasonable doubt is the highest burden of proof in a criminal case and officers must comply with many laws and regulations when performing Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST), Breathalyzer testing, Miranda Warnings, Blood Testing, Implied Consent laws, etc. Attorney Lance Bond will evaluate and scrutinize every portion of the State’s case against you including but not limited to determining whether the vehicle stop was legal, probable cause for arrest, officer compliance with Standardized Field Sobriety Testing, breath-test machine calibration/reliability, operator error when performing these tests.
