Prior DUI Convictions in Kansas City

While a first-time DUI charge may result in a relatively light sentence, the case is much more difficult for a subsequent DUI charge. DUI sentencing in both Missouri and Kansas is much tougher with mandatory minimum jail time, higher fines, longer periods of probation and additional long term consequences such as ignition interlock.

If you are facing any of these situations, it is easy to give up hope of resolving the charges, but an experienced Kansas City multiple DUI attorney may be able to help you build a defense to prove you innocent or have the sentence reduced.
