Steps to Take When Charged With DUI in North Kansas City, Missouri
Your first court date (arraignment) may be at least a month or two from the date you receive the criminal complaint or ticket. However the timer starts running immediately on the right to contest the potential suspension of your Missouri Driving Privileges. In Missouri you have fifteen days from the date of a chemical test failure to request a Drivers License Hearing. If the Officer marked you down as Refusing Testing, a Petition for Review must be filed in Circuit Court within 30 days. The Arresting Officer should have served you with a 15-Day Temporary Driver Permit (Missouri DOR Form 2385). The request must be made within fifteen days of service of the form if a test failure ( B.A.C. of .08 or greater ) was recorded or a Petition for Review must be filed within 30 days if law enforcement says you refused to cooperate and submit a sample. Note: Failure to Request a Drivers License Within the time period will result in the forfeiture of the right to review and the automatic suspension of your Missouri Driving Privileges no matter what the ultimate outcome of the criminal case in court.
When you hire The Law Offices of Charles R. Green, one of the first steps we take on your behalf is to request the Drivers License Hearing with the Missouri Department of Revenue. Contact us today at 816.361.0964 to discuss your options.
