DUI (driving under the influence) or DWI (driving while intoxicated) is a crime in all 50 states. How the crime is handled depends on the state as well. Kansas has some of the strictest laws regarding DUI. In both Kansas and Missouri, the alcohol threshold for DUI is .08%, with even lower levels for minors and the operation of commercial vehicles.
Penalties can include jail time, fines, and restrictions or suspension of driving privileges. If you are charged with a first or second DUI or DWI, a Juris attorney can help you with the goal of the best possible outcome to an unfortunate situation.
