BWI (Boating While Intoxicated)

Missouri law prohibits boating while intoxicated (BWI)—that is, operating a vessel while intoxicated due to alcohol or any combination of alcohol, controlled substances, or drugs. Effective August 28, 2008, Missouri’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) for BWI was lowered from 0.10% to 0.08%.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol and their Water Patrol Division, along with other Missouri law enforcement are aggressively policing the recreational lakes and rivers in Missouri. JCS Law helps those facing a BWI charge. If you or a loved one is charged with Operating a Vessel While Intoxicated, you need representation with experience in alcohol and drug intoxication cases.

John Schleiffarth defends clients facing BWI charges in Camden County (Lake of the Ozarks), Monroe County (Mark Twain Lake), St. Charles County (Lake St. Louis), St. Louis County (Meramec River and Missouri River) and all other Missouri counties.
