DWI: The Collateral Consequences Are Staggering


Most people know that there are consequences for a DWI arrest and conviction. They would be able to tell you, accurately, that a DWI arrest will result in a night in jail and likely result in some expensive fines upon conviction.

We'll add that in addition to that you could face the indignity and expense of an ignition interlock device, the suspension of your driver's license, and spending hours in a substance abuse traffic offender (SATOP) program. 

What fewer people realize is that DWI is not your typical criminal issue. It is not a matter of paying a fine and moving on with your life. The collateral consequences of a DWI make it particularly invasive; a one-time incident that can haunt you for the rest of your life. 

The collateral consequences of DWI include: 

  • Being fired from your job
  • Having your professional license suspended or revoked
  • Failing future background checks as a result of your DWI
  • Becoming ineligible for academic scholarships
  • Increased insurance rates for much of your life
  • Losing respect from your family, friends, and colleagues
  • Having a target placed on your back by law enforcement

These awful consequences will remain with you long after you have spent your night in jail, paid your fines and closed out your "debt to society" tab. 

Look, we get it. Ideally none of these consequences would be an issue because nobody would ever get behind the wheel after having a drink. This may sound simple, but it's not. People make mistakes, including police officers, prosecutors, and scared drivers. Not everyone who is pulled over for DWI is guilty. 

Instead of letting these consequences place your future in doubt, put a proven DWI defense lawyer on your side in the event you are pulled over on suspicion of DWI or arrested for DWI. In Missouri, that proven lawyer is Travis Noble Jr.
