Felony DWI in Missouri

In Missouri, a first or second DUI offense is generally a misdemeanor. However, when a driver has two or more prior DWI convictions, a third DWI is a Class E felony, punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 4 years and/or a fine of up to $10,000.

A fourth DWI is a Class D felony, which carries a prison term of up to 7 years and/or a maximum fine of $10,000. A fifth DWI is a Class C felony, punishable by imprisonment for up to 10 years and/or a fine not exceeding $10,000. Additionally, a sixth DWI is a Class B felony, which carries a maximum prison term of 15 years.

Even if a driver does not have any prior convictions, if a DWI involved an accident that led to injuries, the driver can be charged with a Class E felony. If the DWI involved an accident that resulted in a death, then the driver can be charged with a Class C felony.

Can a DWI Be Reduced in Missouri?

Yes, a DWI can be reduced in Missouri. Depending on the facts of the DWI case, it may be likely to reach a plea deal for a smaller charge. For example, the prosecutor may offer to lower a DWI charge to a reckless driving charge if there is a procedural mistake or other irregularity in the evidence.

A DWI attorney in MO can negotiate with the judge and prosecutor to reduce the sentences.
