Missouri Supreme Court Throws Out All DWI Breathalyzer Results From 14-month Period

This has been a busy week here at the Law Office of Adam Woody.  Adam was interviewed by KSPR and KOLR10 regarding Tuesday’s Supreme Court decision, which determined that all breathalyzer results in DWI cases cannot be used against the driver in either the criminal case or to suspend their driver’s licenses, if that breathalyzer had been maintained between November 30, 2012 through January 29, 2014.  Although most DWI’s from that time period have already been resolved, there will no doubt be additional litigation to determine the impact this ruling will have on already resolved cases.  Contact us as soon as possible if you or anyone you know may be impacted.

Legality of Office Lottery Pools

Believe it or not, there is a fine line between conducting a fun, hopeful office lottery pool and gambling.  Make sure that if you conduct an office pool, have each contributing member throw in the same amount of money, and then have a group leader pool the money and go purchase the tickets.  DO NOT purchase tickets first, pool the tickets, and then collect money.  Oddly enough, under the laws of Missouri, that could be considered illegal gambling as it is viewed as a second game of chance.  Be wary.

I was recently interviewed by the local CBS affiliate KOLR10, pertaining to conducting legal office pools.

Good luck!
