Missouri man faces DWI/DUI charges

A man in Jefferson County is facing serious pending charges following a car accident that claimed the life of one man and sent a woman to the hospital, according to local sources. The 33-year-old Missouri man faces DWI/DUI charges in connection with the accident. He is currently being held against no bond in advance of a trial date, which has yet to be formally set. 

According to the report filed by Missouri police, around noon on Dec. 6, an 88-year-old man and his 87-year-old wife were returning from their usual Friday lunch when their vehicle was struck by another car driven by a 33-year-old man. The force of the impact killed the older driver outright. His wife suffered multiple broken ribs as well as a concussion. 

The younger driver was arrested on site on suspicion of drunk driving. He now faces charges of felony driving while intoxicated resulting in death, as well as DWI resulting in serious injury. While official charges have not yet been filed by the county prosecutor, the man is being held without bail. This is partly due to the fact that he is already on probation for a 2017 aggravated DUI charge. 

While the man's past infractions do not presuppose his guilt in this case, Missouri prosecutors may choose to highlight this element of his past as part of prosecuting him for the DWI/DUI charges filed against him. His criminal defense attorney will work to understand all the facts of the case in order to build a compelling defense for his trial date. Hopefully this will result in a reduction in charges.

  • Dan went above and beyond for me. He exceeded every expectation was honest, efficient and cares about the clients he defends. I couldn't have made a better decision choosing him to defend me. Knowing he is in my corner gives me relief because there is nobody better. If you are in need of legal advice or looking for representation calling Dan is one of the best decisions you can make.
