Felony DWI Convicts Could Soon Have Expanded Employment Rights

On behalf of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in Felony DWI on Friday, July 11, 2014. A new ordinance in Kansas City could lift employment restrictions for those with a history of drunk driving convictions.

Now, those who are convicted of certain crimes may be able to shorten the waiting period for a liquor sales permit, which would expand available job options for a large population...
