On behalf of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in Driver’s License Suspension or Revocation on Friday, September 26, 2014. Can your driver’s license be suspended even if you were cleared of criminal charges for driving while intoxicated? In Missouri, the answer might be “yes.” That is because driver’s license suspensions and revocations are managed in both criminal and administrative forums.

If you have two prior drunken driving convictions, a third conviction will be regarded as a felony. Felonies, of course, carry significantly tougher penalties than misdemeanors. A first or second DWI offense is typically treated as a misdemeanor; that is, unless a DWI crash happens and a person is injured. Even if it’s your first DWI charge, an injury to a passenger or some other person will […]
