Kansas DUI Laws

All motorists in the state are not allowed to operate or attempt to operate a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of at least .08 percent or under the influence of alcohol or drugs to a degree that makes a person incapable of safely operating a vehicle. For commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders, the BAC threshold is lowered to .04 percent.

In addition, a person can be charged with drunk driving without operating the vehicle. Kansas courts say any “overt act to engage” is enough to warrant DUI charges.

How Underage Drinking Laws Differ

For underage drivers, blood alcohol content (BAC) of .02% or higher is grounds for a DUI or DWI. In addition, Kansas law makes it a crime for anyone under the age of 21 to possess, consume, obtain, purchase, or attempt to obtain alcoholic liquor. Any juvenile convicted of such offenses will be fined between $200 and $500.

An underage drinking conviction may also result in mandated community service, completion of an educational program, suspension of driving privileges, and the loss of extra-curricular opportunities.

What Are the Penalties for A DUI?

The penalties for a Kansas DUI depend on the circumstances of the case. The courts will determine a defendant’s penalties based on their BAC level, their criminal history, and other factors.

A first-time drunk driving conviction in the state of Kansas results in the following:

  • A 30-day license suspension
  • A fine of $500 to $1000
  • A minimum incarceration of 48 hours

Repeat convictions or getting into a drunk driving accident can result in:

  • Felony charges that include a one-year license suspension
  • $2,500 fine
  • A one-year prison sentence
  • Mandated use of an ignition interlock device (IID)

How We Can Help You

A competent DUI defense attorney will not advise you to seek diversion without first examining the details of your police report. Our first priority at Rokusek Stein Law, LLC, is to find grounds for an acquittal or dismissal.

These are some of the questions we ask during our investigation:

  • Did the officer have probable cause to stop you?
  • Was the field sobriety test conducted in accord with NHTSA guidelines?
  • Was mandated breathalyzer protocol followed?
  • Is there available video of your arrest?
