An arrest for DUI in Kansas results in two separate aspects of your case: the criminal charges, which can result in fines, jail time, and loss of driving privileges; and the administrative case, which can result in the suspension of your driving privileges.

An arrest for DUI in the county results in two separate aspxects of your case. The first is a Kansas county DUI administrative case that may result in the suspension of your driving privileges. You must send a letter requesting an administrative hearing to the Kansas Department of Revenue within 10 days after your arrest or your driving privileges will automatically be suspended. You must fight to retain your driving privileges!  Do not leave this task to an inexperienced attorney. An experienced attorney will help schedule the administrative hearing and help plan a defense strategy. If you've been arrested and the deadline for the administrative hearing is quickly approaching, contacting an Atchinson County DUI lawyer immediately is highly vital.

A DUI arrest in Atchinson County also triggers a criminal case. Fines, jail time, driver's license suspension, and vehicle impoundment are among the possible penalties for Atchinson County DUI violation. The amount of fine and the length of the jail sentence are determined, in large part, by whether you have previously been convicted, or placed on diversion for a DUI in the county. All prior DUI convictions and DUI diversions count, regardless of how long ago they occurred.

Other Kansas Resources

There are a variety of special problems that arise following a drunk driving, DUI, or DWI arrest. It may be necessary to use a bail bondsman to help a friend or loved one gain release from custody. Renting a car may be difficult (although we know of several companies that will do so), as is getting car insurance. There may be a requirement to attend special alcohol programs, or AA meetings.

Expungement of criminal records

Expungement of criminal records can be a complex process, and the ability to clean up past criminal convictions depends upon many different factors. The law relating to expunging criminal convictions varies from state to state. In Kansas, a DUI conviction or diversion may be expunged if five years have passed since the applicant completed probation or diversion. It is a civil proceeding filed in the county in which the alleged offense occurred. It is important that you consult with a lawyer that is skilled in matters pertaining to expungement.
