Plea Bargaining in Kansas City
Attorney Steve Schanker Explains the Laws
Negotiating a charge of
DUI or DWI is allowed in both Kansas and Missouri subject to some limitations and
mandatory minimum punishments. This process is known as plea bargaining.
In Kansas, a DUI cannot be amended to a lesser offense pursuant to state
law. Diversion can help avoid a conviction for a first-time offender.
For repeat offenders in Kansas, plea bargaining for the minimum possible
jail sentence, for house arrest, and for work release can keep you financially
secure and your family safe.
In Missouri, Mr. Schanker has been successful in having DWI charges amended
to careless driving under certain circumstances and has obtained suspended
sentences from judges to avoid criminal convictions for his clients.
