I am currently on probation in NY for a DUI. MY PO violated me for working in the state of Missouri. My ID expired and I cannot fly back to NY without one to resolve this issue. I am looking to get a state ID in Missouri. Is there any risks in going to the DMV there? (will I be arrested/will they send information to the local police department?)
If you are applying for a valid I'd card you're not breaking any laws in Mo. If your PO issued wanted cards for you then you could be arrested on the warrant issued in NY. You should consult and hire a Mo attorney.
I don't know for sure as it has never come up but during all my dealings with the traffic license office I have never witnessed them calling the police. Assuming you don't cause problems I doubt they would call the police on you either. I am not aware of them running any warrant checks either. Best of luck to you.
This answer is provided as a public service and as a general response to a general question, it is not meant, and should not be relied upon as specific legal advice, nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. Neither the Supreme Court of Missouri nor The Missouri Bar reviews or approves certifying organizations or specialist designations. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements. Past results afford no guarantee of future results. Every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.
You're only going to get arrested if the department of revenue in Missouri runs a criminal background check on you when issuing the I.d. I don't know if they do that as a matter of course, or not.
Always consult a local attorney before acting on any legal opinions or advice you find here, or on the internet, generally.
I have never heard of the Missouri DL Bureau regularly running criminal history on people getting new ID's. That being said, I guess it is possible but seems highly unlikely. The best course of action would be to hire a NY attorney first and see if they could get the warrant in NY recalled and get you a new court date. Then you could get your ID, go back to NY and hopefully get continued on probation. Good luck.
