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.

Contact the criminal attorney in Kansas City for the legal guidance you need in regard to a plea bargain.
