About the Author



Defending persons charged with driving while intoxicated and driving under the influence is becoming a specialty among lawyers.  As a result, you must be on your toes - put another way, you must dot all your "i"s and cross all your "t"s.  Enough with the bad cliches - you have to know the case law and stay informed about changes that occur as a result of judicial decisions.  

Here, courtesy of Mr. Jim Chenault, attorney for the Missouri Department of Revenue, is a quick reference that will help you get those arrests convicted.  A more comprehensive discussion can be found in Jim's new book entitled, Missouri DWI Handbook, available at the LexisNexis Bookstore.   This book is a must read for Missouri law enforcement officers.  Jim has impressive credentials and has generously allowed me to share his work with you.  Click on the link for Jim's Recent Developments in DWI Statutes and Case Law.

In Jackson County, Missouri, we are fortunate to have several dedicated prosecutors working on DUI cases.  One of them, Mr. Charlie Lamento, has created a short reference sheet for officers to use in preparation for testimony in court in DUI cases.  Click on the link below for this valuable reference sheet.
