Get the facts from a Jefferson County DWI attorney
Justice ought to be equal everywhere, but the reality is that some police departments are more hawkish than others.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office maintains an extremely aggressive DWI enforcement unit, and it routinely leads the state in drunk driving arrests. Their officers are encouraged to relentlessly pursue any suspicion of intoxication on the roadways, and as a result, the arrest rates in Jefferson County are substantial.
If you’ve been accused of driving under the influence in Jefferson County, you are not alone.
You should know, though, that the officer’s accusation is not the end of the story.
State and federal law protect your rights too. Prosecutors and police must overcome extraordinary burdens before they can accuse or convict you of a crime. It isn’t uncommon for them to make mistakes, false accusations, or wrongful arrests. Even if you believe you were guilty, you might be surprised to learn that the state has not met its obligations under the law.

WARNING — You Only Have 15 Days to Save Your License!
Do any of the following statements apply to you?

- You are age 21 (or older), and your blood alcohol level was greater than .08%.
- You are under the age of 21, and your blood alcohol level was greater than .02%.
If even one of those statements is true in your case, then your driver’s license may be automatically suspended or revoked 15 days after the date of your arrest.

What Happens Next?
Almost immediately after charging you with a DUI or DWI, the state of Missouri will likely initiate at least two simultaneous legal actions:
- A criminal complaint brought against you by the Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney’s office (on behalf of the state of Missouri).
- A civil action filed against your driver’s license by the Director of the Missouri Department of Revenue.
Both of these legal actions are extremely serious and can affect you for many years to come. Our office can defend you against both at the same time.
