It’s not the same as a first offense DWI
If you’re a St. Louis area resident facing your second DWI in the state of Missouri, or more specifically a St. Louis DWI second offense, you’re going to need a qualified St. Louis DWI Lawyer who has worked multiple second offense DWI’s in the past. A Missouri DWI – Second Offense, brings unique challenges to your legal situation that requires very careful consideration of your past drunk driving record. It’s more than likely that the state of Missouri and the prosecutor filing the charges will be able to see the past DWI on your record. So even if your last DWI was over 5 years ago, it will still be taken into consideration from a punishment perspective.
Here’s what the Missouri Department of Revenue (drivers license bureau) says about multiple DWI offenses:
“If you are convicted of a second intoxication-related traffic offense, regardless of the length of time between convictions, you will normally receive a 1-year revocation for accumulation of points.”
