One State Struggles to Handle Repeat DUI Offenders

Since graduating from George Mason University School of Law in 1988, I have had over 20 years of trial experience, defending citizens accused of a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony offenses in Northern Virginia.   Since 1999, my practice has been almost exclusively focused on the Fairfax County Courts, allowing me to gain an increasing familiarity with the Courts, Prosecutors and Judges here in Fairfax County, Virginia.

Missouri authorities are trying to figure out how to handle repeat drunk drivers.  By one estimate, one-third of DWI arrests are repeat offenders; some of the suspects have been convicted of DWI over five times. 

Missouri's Supreme Court Chief Justice has said suspending drivers' licenses isn't enough -- the offenders continue to drive, and drive drunk.  A Missouri prosecutor has suggested creating a consolidated database authorities could consult (within and outside of the state) to track drunk driving arrests, and the governor is encouraging lawmakers to approve a better tracking system for the state's Highway Patrol.  Other authorities suggest mandatory substance abuse treatment.
