DUI is a unique crime that many people, from all walks of life can easily find themselves charged with in the state of Kansas. If you've been charged with a DUI it doesn't mean you're a bad person. DUI charges are usually the result of an error in judgment. People usually don't consciously drive under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. What is more common is that people drive under the mistaken belief that they are "okay"; to drive. Of course, most people aren't equipped to determine what their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is before they start driving.
Most people that are charged with a DUI in Kansas know that it is a serious charge but beyond that have no idea what to do. They find themselves with many questions and concerns but because they have never been in trouble before they do not know where to turn, or they are embarrassed and are unwilling to seek help. From the outset there are very important deadlines that need to be met to preserve not only your freedom but your privilege to drive. In Kansas, simply one missed deadline will cause you to automatically loose your ability to contest the suspension of your driver's license.
