If you have a pending City of Maplewood DWI, DUI, weed charge, or other criminal offense, you need an experienced lawyer like James P. Feely, Jr., to fight for you in court.
The City of Maplewood is located within St. Louis County. The municipal court is located at 7601 Manchester Road, Maplewood, Missouri 63143.
If you have received a DWI or DUI in Maplewood, Mr. Feely can help you. Such charges are very stressful to deal with, and can wreak havoc on your driving privileges.
Every year the punishments that pertain to intoxicated driving cases become more and more severe.
Some people believe that a first time DWI charge is not very important, but that is a false belief. Even unlike other criminal offenses, a DWI will affect your driving privileges as well as subject you to jail time and large fines.
If a member of law enforcement requests that you submit to a breath or blood test and you refuse, you will fact a one year revocation of your driving privileges.
The good news is that even if you receive a one year revocation for refusing a breath or blood test, you might be eligible for a limited driving privilege (LDP).
However, you will be required to have an ignition interlock device installed if granted an LDP under these circumstances.
An ignition interlock device requires the driver to blow into a device before the car will start, and during intervals while driving, so that the device can determine if the driver has any alcohol in their system.
If the device detects any alcohol on the breath of the driver, it will designate a "fail" and will not start.
The device keeps track of "fails", and the data is downloaded from the device at regular intervals by taking the vehicle to the place where the device was installed.
The cost to have the device installed, and to maintain it, are the responsibility of the driver.
If you have any questions about DWI matters, or other types of offenses, Mr. Feely is happy to speak with you.
Mr. Feely handles other municipalities as well, such as Frontenac, Webster Groves, and others.
