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.

Felony DWI Charge for Young Woman Arrested in Wildwood

On behalf of The Law Office of Jason A. Korner posted in Felony DWI on Monday, February 4, 2013. In Missouri, you can be charged with felony DWI in a couple of situations. If you have two prior drunken driving convictions, a third conviction will be regarded as a felony. Felonies, of course, carry significantly tougher penalties than misdemeanors. A first or second DWI offense is typically treated as a misdemeanor; that is, unless a DWI crash happens and a person is injured. Even if it's your first DWI charge, an injury to a passenger or some other person...
