Driving Under the Influence Charges in Kansas and Missouri
It is a violation of both Kansas and Missouri law to be driving under the influence of alcohol with a .08 BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) or to be impaired to the degree where one cannot safely operate a motor vehicle. It is also a DUI violation in both Missouri and Kansas to be driving under the influence of drugs or a combination of both drugs and alcohol.
DUI penalties are severe. For first time DUI, Kansas has a mandatory minimum 48 hour jail term or 100 hours of community service. The fine is from $750 to $1250. There is a license suspension of 30 days and mandatory ignition interlock requirement of six months. The penalties increase if a BAC is obtained of .15 or above. Alcohol and Drug Education and Treatment may be ordered, as well as other conditions.
For multiple DUI, the penalties get more severe. For a second offense the jail time is 90 days to a year, license suspension for a year and mandatory installation of ignition interlock device. Third and fourth convictions become a felony DUI with mandatory minimum jail terms that must be served before work release or probation becomes available.
Drivers under age 21 with a .02 BAC can be charged with underage DUI. This can result in a fine, jail and a driver's license suspension or revocation.
