Man Acquitted of DWI After Being Forced to Submit to Blood Draw

On behalf of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in Breath Test Refusal on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. Although the verdict wasn’t reached in a Missouri court, a recent DWI story out of another state is reminiscent of a Missouri case that will soon be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. The primary legal question in both cases is whether or not it is a violation of constitutional rights to force drunk driving suspects to submit to a blood test without a warrant. In the out-of-state case, a man charged for drunk driving was finally acquitted after years […]

Parade Organizers Hope Cooler Ban Will Curb Underage Drinking

On behalf of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in Underage Drinking on Monday, February 25, 2013. They finally did it. The organizers of Dogtown’s famed St. Patrick’s Day Parade banned coolers from this year’s event. The Ancient Order of Hibernians hope to curb excessive drinking and underage drinking on what is traditionally, right or wrong, a fairly beer-centered celebration. Incidentally, St. Patrick’s Day is also when a lot of people who didn’t expect to go to jail end up there because of an alcohol-related charge such as DWI. St. Louis residents should keep in mind that police […]
