School Teacher Fights DWI
A young schoolteacher was facing a DWI charge. She admitted to drinking, failed several Field Sobriety Tests, and refused to submit to the breath test. The prosecutor’s office refused to reduce the charge because they felt like they had a strong case. At trial Mr. Korner aggressively questioned both police officers involved in the arrest. After only a short time deliberating the jury found the young woman Not Guilty.
Jefferson County Felony DWI – 4th Offense
A newly married couple from Jefferson County was driving home from a Memorial Day barbecue when pulled over for a DWI. The gentleman driving had three prior DWI’s, which made this case a felony DWI charge. Under the laws of Missouri this man would have had to complete at least 60 days in jail and be a convicted felon if he plead guilty or was found guilty. At trial Mr. Korner confronted a veteran police officer who had logged more than 2,000 career DWI arrests. The jury only deliberated briefly before finding the gentleman Not Guilty on all charges.
Commercial Driver’s License
A man with a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) was pulled over for speeding at 11:00 a.m. on his way to a doctor’s appointment. The man failed Field Sobriety Tests and his breath test result was 0.11%, well over the legal limit. Mr. Korner won the hearing with the Department of Revenue by showing there was no reason this man should have even been arrested in the first place. The criminal charges were amended to a simple traffic ticket and the man was able to keep his CDL without any interruption of his driving privileges.
