Potential DUI Penalties In Missouri

If convicted of a DUI in Missouri, you could be facing such penalties as: incarceration, expensive fines, loss of license, mandatory alcohol/drug testing, education or treatment, mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device, and court appointed community service.

The average punishment will involve a combination of fines, the length of time you are prohibited from driving, and the extent of any additional requirements, such as alcohol counseling or an educational course about the dangers of drinking and driving. The higher your blood alcohol content is the more severe the average punishment will be. The nature of your punishment also depends on various other factors, including how many times you’ve been convicted of drinking and driving before, whether any children were in the car at the time, and whether you were involved in an accident.

In addition to legal consequences, a DUI conviction can lead to loss of a job, difficulties finding jobs in the future, eviction from your home, or difficulty finding a new place to live. People with children may face the risk of losing custody. It may prevent noncitizens from pursuing citizenship and even result in deportation.
