Johnson County Felony DUI Lawyer

While all drunk driving charges should be taken seriously, felony DUI charges require a swift and strong defense because the stakes are so high. For instance, a felony DUI conviction may trigger:

  • A minimum of 90 days in jail
  • An ignition interlock device installation
  • A license suspension of one year
  • The assessment of a minimum $1,500 fine in addition to court costs
  • Mandatory drug and alcohol classes

Attorney Jerry Merrill of Overland Park, Kansas, is committed to defending Johnson County residents facing serious DUI charges. As an experienced criminal defense lawyer with a reputation for providing aggressive trial defense, he has successfully assisted clients throughout the Kansas City metro area.

Challenging The Details

Felony DUIs usually arise because someone has prior DUI convictions on his or her record. Moreover, Kansas courts take a person's lifetime driving record into account when establishing charges. Therefore, if you have been charged with felony DUI, you need a strong advocate to challenge the evidence and minimize the consequences you face.

Jerry challenges every stage of the DUI case beginning with the stop and ending at trial. Depending on the specifics of your case, he may challenge:

  • The traffic stop
  • Breathalyzer results
  • The field sobriety tests
  • The chain of custody for evidence

Because the consequences of a second or third DUI are so severe, Jerry will pursue all legal avenues to help you avoid a criminal conviction.
