Missouri Woman Convicted Of Fifth DWI

As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we see an alarming amount of DWI’s every single month. However, a St. Ann’s woman recently made headlines when she pleaded guilty to her fifth DWI charge.

The incident occurred in 2010, however, the forty-nine-year-old woman was only just convicted of the charge in the month of December. According to an article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, she was pulled over at almost 1:30 in the morning, and the officers noticed a distinct smell of alcohol emanating from her mouth, as well as bloodshot, glassy eyes. The woman has served prison sentences for her other four prior convictions, and the most recent conviction was for a DWI chronic offender charge.

Fortunately, no one was hurt while the woman was driving under the influence of alcohol. However, these situations rarely end this well. All too often, drunk drivers take the lives of innocent people, and many people have suffered debilitating injuries because of one person making the irresponsible decision to drive drunk.

As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we hope that you never find yourself or someone you love to be the victim of a drunk driver. However, if you do, please contact our office right away to schedule a consultation. As a victim, you deserve compensation for your injuries, and we’ll fight hard to make sure you get it.
