Is a Law Enforcement Agency Using Zombies as DUI Prevention Tool?

On behalf of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in DWI / Drunk Driving Charges on Thursday, October 31, 2013. In a matter of hours, children here in St. Louis and across the state of Missouri will be donning their capes, masks and makeup, and heading out for a night of trick-or-treating. However, children won’t be the only ones out enjoying the evening, as countless adults will also be putting on costumes and heading to parties at the homes of friends or area hotspots. Of course, one of the predominant fixtures at many of these adult-themed Halloween celebrations […]

Study Examines How Fake IDs Affect Alcohol Consumption Patterns

On behalf of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in Underage Drinking on Friday, October 25, 2013. At this time of the year, college campuses here in Missouri and across the nation are buzzing with activity as students prepare for mid-terms, work part-time jobs and manage a busy extracurricular calendar. Not surprisingly, many of these students somehow manage to also make time for alcohol consumption. However, a new study shows that many of them doing so are not necessarily of the legal drinking age. A group of researchers at the University of Maryland set out to examine just […]

Jefferson County Checkpoints to Continue

By Jason Korner of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in DWI Checkpoints on Wednesday, October 23, 2013. Jefferson County’s Council recently voted to reject a $22,000 grant from the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission to fund Safety Checkpoints. The Council rejected the funding due to concerns over the intrusiveness of these “safety” checkpoints. It is the first time funds of this nature have been rejected by the Jefferson County Council. Although council members seem to support more traditional sobriety checkpoints, they expressed that safety checkpoints were in the best interest of Jefferson County residents. A safety checkpoint […]

On behalf of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in Felony DWI on Friday, October 18, 2013. After a long week at work, many people like to head out to a local restaurant to chat with friends and family over a good meal, and either a glass of wine or a beer.

Study Shows Just How Much Alcohol Can Affect a Person’s Judgment

On behalf of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in DWI / Drunk Driving Charges on Friday, October 11, 2013. One of the unfortunate realities of alcohol consumption is that it can surreptitiously affect a person’s ability to make sound judgments. For instance, many people who have consumed only a few drinks mistakenly believe that they are okay to drive home, only to find themselves in the back of a squad car a short time later after a police officer measures their breath alcohol concentration as being well over the legal limit. Interestingly, researchers at the University of […]

One DWI, Two Very Different Breath Tests

By Jason Korner of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in DWI / Drunk Driving Charges on Wednesday, October 9, 2013. “The Officer Had Me Blow Twice in My DWI Case” Frequently during new client consultations for DWI cases I hear, “They had me blow twice.” Usually this means the police officer administered a preliminary breath test at the scene, prior to placing my client under arrest, then administered an evidentiary breath tests once back at the station. There are times when no preliminary breath test is given, and other times when the evidentiary breath test takes place […]

Bills Would Give Students Immunity from Underage Drinking Charges

On behalf of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in Underage Drinking on Friday, October 4, 2013. One of the unfortunate realities when it comes to underage drinking and college students is that it often crosses the line from mere experimentation to dangerous overindulgence. Indeed, statistics have shown that levels of binge drinking among college students continue to rise despite the education and enforcement efforts of officials at schools here in Missouri and throughout the U.S. Interestingly, lawmakers in the state of Wisconsin are considering a somewhat novel approach to the problem of underage drinking: granting both academic […]
