I agree with both other attorneys that have answered this question. MIP is a Class C misdemeanor meaning it is very low on the totem pole so to speak. As Attorney Robinson said your biggest concern should be the license suspension. Since you haven't been in trouble before it is likely you can do a diversion on an offense like this, but it is best to seek local counsel.
Good luck.See question

However, you should consult an attorney to review the facts of the case against you. There is a possibility you would have a case you would want to take to trial. Best of luck.See question

It is good that you are looking to take care of this matter. The court will appreciate that fact as well. There are a couple of ways that this could play out. You will likely need a lawyer. There is a very small possibility you would allowed another opportunity to finish the diversion, but the more likely scenario is that they will not allow that, and you will need to look into how to minimize the damage. There is a strong possibility of avoiding jail time altogether. Contact a criminal defense attorney in KS today.See question
Last year, I was granted a diversion agreement for a battery misdemeanor charge 21-5413 (a) in the State of Kansas. I completed all the requirements and according to the website the charge is dismissed. This is the only charge on my record, but I ...
Don't pay those sites, they are a scam. As attorney Lewis said you can expunge / seal your public record 3 years after the completion of your diversion. It is a relatively simple process, but most people prefer to use an attorney to take care of it.See question
Can I drive a different vehicle that I own without an interlock? Any loopholes to squeak me by?
The only "loophole" in KS would be that a person who is restricted to operating only a vehicle with an ignition interlock device may operate an employer's vehicle without an ignition interlock device during normal business hours, provided that the person does not partly or entirely own or control the employer's vehicle or business. I do not think that this will work for your situation though. My recommendation is to not test the waters on this issue. If you are found operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock when required to have one, then you are looking at being charged with a class A misdemeanor in Kansas.See question
