  • Ruling allows Missouri woman to avoid deportation

    Wednesday Mar 11 | via Missourian 

    A year ago, Komdown "Dow" Boyer of Bonne Terre, Missouri, appeared headed for deportation to Thailand after she was convicted of stealing from the pizza restaurant where she worked, even though prosecutors and her employers fought on her behalf. But the Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills, Missouri, reports that the immigration case was dismissed Monday, and that Boyer can stay in the U.S. Boyer, who moved to the U.S. as a child after her mother married an American soldier, was convicted in 2013 of stealing money from the CiCi's pizza restaurant where she had worked for a decade.

Bonne Terre Law

I have a DWI SES Class D Felony Conviction, I was wondering if there is a way of reinstating my Drivers License.
It's been four years since my last conviction which was my third DWI.
If you are unable to get a license in MO, you may be able to in CO.
Suspension/revocation of license?
My ex got cited for driving on a suspended/revoked license and failure to stay in one lane on a 3 or more lane road. What is going to happen with this (likely outcome)? I only ask because we have a family court case we are in and his license has obviously been suspended for some time and he was driving my children around with no license and I did not know until now. This suspension/revocation was for a DWI and that case is still going on too though he's under a suspended sentence (for now). What's possible outcomes in this situation?
The answer depends on how the DWS is charged. Take a look at Section 302.321. Punishment on a DWS can be as low as a $...

I was refused the opportunity to file for trial de novo for license suspension.
I attempted to apply for a trial de novo following an administrative hearing with the Department of Revenue in Farmington MO. I was advised at the St. Francois County District III Court clerks office that only an attorney could apply for a trial de novo, an individual could not apply. How is this not a violation of my civil rights?? I can represent myself in court proceedings but I can't file motions for those proceedings...that doesn't sound like correct information to me!! Is this a violation of my civil rights? If so what can I do now??
You are complaining about what happened in an admisintrative hearing not a criminal proceeding. They probably have...
Can DUI sentences change from state to state?
My boyfriend is a former Ohio resident who recently moved to Missouri, while in Ohio he obtained 3 DUI's and received a 5 year suspension on his drivers liceanse, he is halfway through his suspension but was recently told by Missouri DMV that his suspension is now 10 years because he resides in Missouri.

The general rule of thumb is that the state DMV views an out of state offense as if it had been committed in the...
Does a misdemeanor dui from 12 years ago have a statute of limitations
the party hasn't renewed their driver's license since this incident and hasn't been in any kind of criminal trouble during this time nor has this person received any further traffic violations during this time period. this person wasn't able to afford to comply with all of the requirements the judge ordered for this dui charge either because of financial hardship
You may want to rephrase your question. The statute of limitations is not in issue here if the person already plead...
