Missouri man gets probation after 10th DWI

A Missouri man was recently sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to his tenth conviction for driving while intoxicated. The charges stemmed from an August 2013 incident. According to police, the 55-year-old man was stopped for a traffic offense. During the stop, police detained the man for driving while intoxicated and driving on a revoked license.

The local police say that was the man's tenth arrest for driving while intoxicated and also his tenth for driving with a revoked or suspended license. On Dec. 11, the accused man pleaded guilty to both charges. In exchange for the guilty plea, he was placed on probation for an undisclosed period of time.

The convicted man's attorney said that in addition to being on probation, the man is wearing an alcohol-detecting bracelet on his ankle and has not had a drink since the incident. He also said that the man is seeking treatment and could face more than 10 years in prison if caught drinking. There was no word as to how long his license may be suspended or whether he had served time in jail for any of the past convictions.

The penalties for driving while intoxicated get more severe with subsequent convictions. A first-time offense may result in fines, license suspensions and probation. Subsequent convictions could lead to significant time in jail. However, as this case shows, those who have been arrested multiple times can still enter into a plea deal. An experienced criminal defense attorney could possibly help an accused individual obtain a favorable outcome through plea negotiations.
