Will I Go to Jail for my DUI?
Protecting Your Rights in Kansas & Missouri
Getting charged with DUI can be a nerve-wracking, humiliating and dehumanizing
experience. The important thing to remember is that you are not convicted
of DUI, only accused of it at this point. You have the constitutional
right to hire an attorney of your choice who can fight the charges against
you and to provide an aggressive defense to protect your rights, your
future and freedom. If you cannot afford an attorney the Court will provide
you with court-appointed counsel in Kansas.
Depending on the circumstances, most first-time offenders in Missouri are
not likely to be required to spend any time in jail. Exceptions to this
may include a DUI conviction at trial, if an accident or injury is associated
with the DUI, or a high BAC or other extenuating or aggravating factor
is alleged. Even if
you have been convicted of DUI in the past, your attorney may be able to have your charges reduced or work out a
plea agreement that incorporates house arrest or work release instead of jail.
first offense in Kansas can include either a minimum of two days in jail or 100 hours
of community service. A second offense may require a minimum of five days
in jail, with a third offense carrying a minimum of 90 days. Again, it
is important to remember that an attorney can help to achieve the best
potential outcome for your case, which may mean you spend no time in jail at all.
