Criminal Code 2014 Revision Drug & Alcohol Offenses Guidebook

Practice Area:


In 2014, the Missouri General Assembly passed Senate Bill 491, followed closely by House Bill 1371. The provisions of both bills take effect January 1, 2017. Work on a revision of the Criminal Code was initiated in 2008 by a subcommittee of The Missouri Bar’s Criminal Law Committee. The proposed Revised Code recommended by The Missouri Bar Criminal Code Review Subcommittee served as the foundation for all subsequent legislative efforts.


This guidebook, written by Meghan Maskery Luecke, staff attorney for the Missouri Senate Division of Research, provides an in depth review of the changes related to drug and alcohol offenses.
