Missouri Criminal Laws

Criminal law is enforced primarily at the state level; and while the types of conduct criminalized don't vary too much from state to state, the way in which these laws are enforced often does. Missouri criminal laws include provisions for violent crimes such as assault and battery, robbery, sexual assault, and the various types of homicide (from involuntary manslaughter to first-degree murder). Newer laws establish tougher penalties for habitual drunk drivers who will be treated as dangerous felons. The following articles will help you make sense of Missouri's criminal laws. Speak with a Missouri criminal defense attorney if you have additional questions.
