The shortage of public defenders has reached an all time crisis, but even with few resources these defenders are still constitutionally obligated to represent clients in need. The state must find representation for the criminally accused even if it requires private attorneys to work for free.

Tolerance can differ from person to person, and it is important to know your tolerance and when it’s time to call a safe ride to get to your next destination.
Fall is a good kickoff to all of the upcoming holiday events. Tailgating on Missouri State University’s campus is now allowed, Oktoberfest celebrations are happening just about every weekend, and the weather is much better for enjoying a few daytime beers in a friend’s backyard (or in Mother’s Brewing Company’s backyard!). But, the question is always, “Am I too drunk to drive?” How your tolerance compares to someone else’s is a big deal when you decide whether or not to get behind the wheel. Just because your friend had two drinks and seems sober enough to drive doesn’t mean the same goes for you. Two drinks are not always the best way to gauge whether or not you should make the journey home yourself or if you should snag a taxi (better yet, an Uber or Lyft!) In Springfield, most Uber or Lyft rides cost under $20 depending on the time of the ride. Some rides cost as low as $6.00. Paying this small fee is incredibly worth it, especially compared to the cost of a DWI.
One beer could be one drink, and in that case, one drink is 12 ounces. One cocktail could contain only 1.5 ounces of liquor, and one glass of wine could be under 6 ounces. The variation between types of alcohol and how they metabolize in one’s body could mean the difference between blowing a .06 when pulled over or a .09. Other factors make a huge difference as well. Everything from the amount of sleep you get the night before, the amount of food in your stomach, or how much water you have drank can seriously effect how your body handles an amount of alcohol.
Stay safe out there, and if you need help, let the Law Office of Adam Woody be your best defense.
