What could I face for an .08 DUI in Missouri? 1 Answers as of April 25, 2011I was at a nearby city and am not familiar with the roads, if they are one way or not. I drove into a one way in the wrong direction. An officer pulled me over and gave me a breathalyzer; I blew an .08. I explained to the officer I had waited and hour after my my last drink to drive home. What could I face for this? I have a clean record this is my first offense. Who would better represent me, a public defender or an attorney? What can happen to my driver's license after this? How much can this end up costing?

The prosecutor has to prove actual impairment. If you performed well on the field sobriety tests, you may have a defensible case. Otherwise, it will be a class A misdemeanor. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact my office.
