The United States Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that police must obtain a search warrant to draw blood in routine drunk driving arrests.
The case stems from a 2010 drunk driving arrest in Cape Girardeau. At question is whether a Missouri Highway Patrol Officer violated Tyler McNeely’s protection from unreasonable search and seizure when he drew McNeely’s blood with neither a warrant nor his permission.
The explosions happened in quick succession four hours after the beginning of the race, the world's oldest and one of the most prestigious road races in the world. At that point, the majority of 27,000 runners had crossed the finish line. Thousands, however, were still out on the course.
A disbarred lawyer has pleaded guilty in Kansas City federal court to stealing from a fund for two murdered children.
The investigation tracked back 5 years.
The former lawyer, disbarred in 2009, admitted to a U.S. District Judge he stole from a fund he set up to build a memorial to Lindsey and Sam Porter, two Independence children killed by their father during a custody battle in 2004.
The fund was to build a playground in the children’s names.
When the theft was discovered, Kent Desselle returned the missing $12 thousand.
