    Friday Jan 9 | via The Jersey Journal 

    The trial for a Missouri man accused in the bizarre kidnapping-gone-wrong of a Newton resident is slated to begin next month, Sussex County First Assistant Prosecutor Greg Mueller said. Douglas Stangeland could face life in prison with 30 years of parole ineligibility if he's found guilty in the trial set to start Feb. 24. Mueller said the trial for an alleged accomplice in the kidnapping, Lonnie Swarnes, is likely to immediately follow Swarnes' trial.

I was at a small party, with maybe 15 people. I drank a beer, and just took a few sips out of a second when the cops show up. Some people ran and tried to hide, but I sat down in their clear view and stayed calm. I was respectful and honest the entire time. All he took down was my name and birthday, and he asked if I was 21, my response was no. The follow up question, was if I had been drinking, and I said yes. After a while, everyone felt natures call, and the officer was patting people down before they could use the restroom, but when I went he said "Hey bud, you haven't given me a reason not to trust you. Some of those other guys have been trying to flush stuff down the toilet. As long as you don't have anything on you, you're good." A few hours go by, and he starts to breathalyze everyone. When I go up I tell him that I had full intentions of spending the night at the house, and showed that my car keys weren't on me. The officer had me go sit back down, and he tested everyone else. I did take the breathalyzer at the very end, but he never told me what I blew. He asked if I was spending the night, or calling a ride. But right after he said that, he pointed to my friend, and said "he's 0.00 if you want he can drive your car for you.". When everything was said and done, one person was arrested, but no tickets or citations were issued. The highest ranking officer said some of us should expect letters from the prosecuter. Will I recieve a letter, and/or an MIP?

Sit down with a Missouri criminal defense attorney to figure that one out! Good luck.
In Missouri on 10/05/14 I was in a parking lot of a motel when police pulled in and utimately took me in at approximately 1:30 or so am. Several civial rights of mine were abused. I was charged I thought with a DWI according to the county court there are no charges pending a court date as of yet 1/11/14. I instanty moved forward with a restricted licence and satop as well as the interlock. I called the licence bureau interactive response hotlime and it states I have no pending or action against my license. My question is can i legally remove this interlock or do I just leave it on for the 6 months. I am not trying to bring any attention to myself and I am seeing the statue of limitations to be one year if I am correct. Any advise is appreciated. Thank you very much

My husband has a DWI offense conviction. He won the administrative hearing in Missouri, no license suspension or revocation. Not on Limited Driving or Restricted Driving Privileges. Court ordered IID on any vehicle he operates as part of probation. We have two cars, his name is on both Titles (cannot just be my name alone on my car due to credit). Will they expect two IIDs, one on each car even though he will be driving only the one car?
That depends on what the order said. For example, in NY it is owns or operates. Therefore it would be both cars. You...
Most DWI courts require the conviction to be a felony. However, if the charge is a class B felony statute number 577.010 states that the offender must serve two years in prison before probation or parole is granted. The two years would either be associated with a DOC Long Term Treatment Program or it would be a straight DOC sentence for X # of years. I'm assuming that after doing either of these one wouldn't be able to go into DWI court but if anyone can provide clarification or details about this I would greatly appreciate it.
I can't answer this question for every DWI Court in Missouri. In St. Louis County and St. Charles County they will...
