Kansas City Felony DUI LAWYER

What Happens if You Are Charged With a Felony DUI/DWI in Kansas City?

Kansas and Missouri law enforcement takes DUI/DWI very seriously, and while the penalties are stiff even in a first-time offense, they escalate with subsequent convictions. Anyone found guilty for a 3rd or subsequent time will be punished for felony DUI, the most serious DUI charge possible. The penalties for a felony DUI/DWI in Kansas and Missouri respectively are as follows:


  • Level 6 nonperson felony

  • Mandatory post-release supervision
  • Driver's license suspension for one year
  • Mandatory alcohol evaluation and treatment
  • Ignition interlock


  • Up to fifteen years in prison (must serve at least 30 days to 2 years depending on the number of prior offenses).
  • Up to $5,000.00 in fines
  • Probation for 2 to 5 years.
  • 10-year denial of driver's license.

In addition to these penalties, you will have to live with a felony on your criminal record, which will create serious problems with regard to employment and holding certain professional licenses. Missouri DWI penalties and Kansas DUI penalties require serious legal representation.
