Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Criminal Law litigation attorney here to assist you.
Under Missouri law, if you get a second DUI within 5 years of of the first, you would be charged with a DUI 2nd. However, if the DUI is older than 5 years, the recent DUI would be considered a DUI 1st.
Thus, in your case, your first DUI would be irrelevant as it is much older than the law allows for consideration. However, the offense would still show up on your criminal history if it was not expunged, but it would not be held against you or enhance your punishment.
