Woman accused of drunk driving multiple times over summer

On Aug. 24, a woman in Missouri was charged for drunk driving for the third time since June. As a result, a judge has ordered the revocation of her two previous bonds and set her current bond at $20,000. If the 54-year-old woman posts bond for the latest incident, the judge has stipulated that she will be required to keep an alcohol monitoring and tracking device around her ankle.

The woman was charged for her latest DWI after police stopped her on Missouri Way in Fayetteville. Before the traffic stop, an off-duty police officer had apparently witnessed the accused woman driving in the wrong direction on North College Avenue. The woman reportedly had an open container of alcohol in her car and a blood-alcohol content of .21 percent. She also failed to satisfactorily complete a field sobriety test.

So far, the woman has not been convicted on any of her three most recent DWI charges. The woman’s prior criminal record does contain a conviction from an incident that took place in 2011. After pleading guilty for her role in a fatal crash, the woman was convicted for negligent homicide and other charges.

A person in a similar situation could face severe penalties if they are convicted for multiple DWI charges. An attorney might be able to assist an individual by arguing for at least one of the DWI charges to be dropped. This strategy may result in the avoidance of possible felony charges. By eliminating the possibility of a felony DWI charge, a person may then have a better chance of receiving less severe penalties for the other charges.
