Third DWI Consequences in Missouri

Third DWI Charge

A person charged with a third driving while intoxicated offense in Missouri can be charged as a "persistent offender" and result in a conviction of a Class D Felony. The sentence for a Class D felony in Missouri is a fine of up to $5,000 and up to four years inprisonment with the Missouri Department of Corrections. Aside from fines and imprisonment, becoming a convicted felon in Missouri carries with it a stigma and consequences that will likely affect a person for the rest of their life including being unable to own a firearm and barred from voting. A felon's ability to find employment will almost certainly be significantly impaired, especially in those fields requiring licenses and/or certifications.
