The consequences of just going to court without consulting with a Chesterfield Traffic Ticket Lawyer and pleading guilty can be serious. They may include a criminal conviction or traffic conviction on your record, fines, loss of your driver’s license, or even jail time.
Pleading guilty to a DWI Charge, a DUI Charge, or some other moving traffic offense, will not only mean a fine but application of the Missouri Department of Revenue point system. This could lead to eventual suspension of your license and extremely high insurance rates for several years.
Before pleading guilty to a DWI Charge, or any kind of Speeding Ticket or other kind of Traffic Ticket that can put points on your license, it is often worthwhile to discuss the situation with an experienced Chesterfield Traffic Ticket Lawyer. You may permanently damage your case by talking with police and prosecutors before talking with a Traffic Ticket Lawyer.
Call me, Douglas Richards, an experienced Chesterfield Traffic Ticket Lawyer, for a Free Consultation.
I have represented clients facing traffic tickets for over 30 years. The Prosecuting Attorney must prove traffic ticket cases, like all other criminal cases, beyond a reasonable doubt. By demonstrating even before trial that the Prosecuting Attorney has no case, or a very weak case, can serve as the basis to arrange for a plea bargain, a reduced charge, or even complete dismissal of the charges.
I will make sure your rights and privileges are protected to the greatest extent possible. An arrest can be a devastating experience, and the consequences can follow you for the rest of your life. Because the criminal and traffic court system is complex, you benefit from the counsel of a skilled and knowledgeable Chesterfield Traffic Ticket Lawyer in court. You need someone on your side who understands the law and how the municipal traffic courts work.
I never charge a fee for an initial consultation because I understand that it is an important step in the process of finding the right Chesterfield Traffic Ticket Attorney for you. Call me today so I can answer all of your Chesterfield Traffic Ticket Defense questions.

How does Missouri’s point system work?
If you accumulate a total of 4 points in 12 months, the Department of Revenue will send you a point accumulation advisory letter.
If you accumulate a total of 8 or more points in 18 months, the Department of Revenue will suspend your driving privilege.
- 1st suspension – 30 days
- 2nd suspension – 60 days
- 3rd or more suspensions – 90 days
The Department of Revenue will revoke your driving privilege for one year if you accumulate:
- 12 or more points in 12 months
- 18 or more points in 24 months
- 24 or more points in 36 months
When your driving privilege is reinstated following a Point Suspension or Revocation, the Department of Revenue reduces your total points to 4.
Every year you drive without getting new points on your record, the points will be reduced.
- 1 year — total remaining points reduced by one-third
- 2 years — remaining points reduced by one-half
- 3 years — points reduced to zero
Although your points may be reduced to zero, certain types of convictions must remain listed permanently on your Missouri driver record.
How many points do I have on my record?
Please call (573) 526-2407 to find out how many points you have on your record or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
When can tickets be removed from my record?
Traffic Tickets cannot be removed from your Missouri driver record until the conviction is at least three years old, but other conditions may apply.
If the traffic ticket(s) led to the suspension or revocation of your Missouri driving privilege, then five years must pass from the suspension or revocation reinstatement date before the traffic ticket(s) may be purged.
Traffic Tickets for Failure to Maintain Insurance cannot be removed from your Missouri driver record.
How can I request an old ticket be removed from my record?
You may submit a request (including your full name and Missouri driver license number or social security number) to have old tickets purged from your record using one of the following methods:
- Send an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Call (573) 526-2407 during normal business hours to request the purge.
- Send a written request to our central office:
Missouri Department of Revenue
301 West High Street – Room 470
PO Box 200
Jefferson City, MO, 65105-0200
NOTE: A ticket is not eligible to be removed if it “supports” an existing administrative suspension/revocation/denial action against the driver, or if it otherwise must remain on the record in accordance with state law.
