Man to serve 6 months of work release for DWI

A Missouri judge sentenced a St. Louis man to six months of work release for a DWI conviction. The man was sentenced on Jan. 14 in Franklin County for a DWI that occurred on Dec. 1, 2013.

According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, the man was stopped after turning onto Clearview Road from Highway 47. The trooper reported that the man was not driving on the correct side of the road while he was on Highway 47. The man reportedly refused to submit to a breathalyzer or sobriety testing, so the officer obtained a warrant to test his blood. His blood alcohol level came back at 0.173, which is more than double the state's limit of 0.08.

The man was reportedly on probation for another DWI out of Charles County at the time of the offense. He was found guilty at trial after the jury deliberated for 55 minutes on Nov. 9, 2015. The prosecutor stated that the man was sentenced to work release because he was already on probation at the time. The man was ordered to report for his sentence on Feb. 1, and he will serve time on weekends and during nights.

When police officers suspect that someone is driving drunk, they may ask them to submit to roadside sobriety tests and breathalyzer testing. If the person fails these tests, they may be charged with a DWI offense. People who are charged with drunk driving may need to get help from a criminal defense attorney. An attorney may be able to challenge the admission of evidence in their client's case. They may also be able to challenge the manner in which the testing was performed or negotiate a favorable plea.
