Description

This 10 part series revealed that while most states showed a significant improvement in drunk driving fatalities between 1982 and 2002, Missouri placed 30th. In Missouri, drunk drivers-even those who injure and kill- are usually punished with just probation and fines. Also, many offenders enter a plea in return of a 'Suspended Imposition of Sentence', which never becomes part of the public record.
