    Operating a Watercraft Under the Influence

    in Legal

    Boaters face punishment of a class A misdemeanor 364 days jail, $2,500 fines for operating a watercraft (boating) under the influence.  Boaters have less protections than motorists in that they can be stopped without a reasonable and articulable suspicion of wrongdoing.  Boaters can be stopped and boarded for license and safety checks without probable cause.  How are Standardized Field Sobriety tests conducted?  Will this impact your driver’s license?  What about a statutory summary suspension?  What effect will an out-of-state violation of this nature have in Illinois?  These issues will be discussed in this podcast with criminal attorney, James Doerr of Lavelle Law, Ltd.

    Talking In Circles: Steve Byrnes Death, Kyle Busch Exemption, David Ragan's ride

    in Sports

    On this episode of Talking In Circles we discuss the life and career of the late Steve Byrnes. Byrnes, the former NASCAR Broadcaster lost his life due to a battle with cancer on Tuesday. 


    Also NASCAR has said they are open to an exemption for injured driver Kyle Busch. Busch has been hurt since his opening week accident at Daytona International Speedway. Is this the right decision? 


    David Ragan appears to be headed to the No. 55 at Kansas Speedway in two weeks. Can Ragan make Chase in this ride? 


    Also NASCAR Whelen Modified Tommy Barrett, Jr was arrested and charged with a DUI. That led his Our Motorsports team to suspend him from the race at Stafford Speedway this weekend. Was this the right move by the team? Or another Kurt Busch situation. 


    Mike Wallace had triple bypass surgery last week meaning he will not race in next weekend's NASCAR Xfinity Series race. He will be replaced by his brother Kenny Wallace in the No.26 JGL Racing Toyota. 


    Johanna Long will run the No. 03 this weekend at Richmond. How will she do? 


    RCR Appeal. What's taking so long?

    Prosecutorial Discretion (DACA, DAPA, Admin Close)

    in Legal

    The President has the authority to execute the laws of the United States. He also has the discretion to execute the laws the way he sees fit. He can execute the laws to the full extent or he can execute them in a more relaxed way. (A prosecutor for the states government or a prosecutor for the federal government has the same discretion.) As a practicing attorney, I have always know that the US Government has always given some aliens more breaks than other aliens in the form of prosecutorial discretion. The recently announced DACA and DAPA are both prosecutorial discretion in other clothing. I read an article that says that it would cost about $60 Billions to deport all the undocumented people. Also based on "due process" of law this would take years to do. The rationale behind recently announced Executive Orders is to allow the government to spend its resources on what it believes to be the hard core criminals.


    For those of us who are not United States citizens (USC) please keep in mind that one DWI/DUI is mandatory detention. I have noticed this increased enforcement on DWI/DUI in the last 1.5 weeks or so.


    I do not want to suggest do not drink. If you drink, do not drive; plan a sober ride.

    Should the legal drinking age be lowered to 18?

    in Blogs

    At 18 one may join the military, go to college, live on their own, vote, work, pay taxes, make decisions for theirselves. Is it time that one may drink wine, beer or liquor at 18? Why is it that other countries are able to have people drink at 18 without issue? Who has it right? Assuming we do have it right, should raise the age requirement for voting or military service? The drinking age is 21 and anyway you put, the US is backwards with these age requirements. 45 states have set their own exceptions to allow underage consumption of alcohol under certain circumstances. Five states (Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, New Hampshire, and West Virginia) have no exceptions in their underage alcohol consumption law (From: http://drinkingage.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=002591 ) Lets chat talk about this.

    Dawn loved the bingo games. No one thought much about it until a neighbor discovered her young children home alone one night while Dawn was playing the cards at the bingo parlor.


    Reggie had always been famous for how many beers he could drink without feeling any effects. But something had changed. He'd been drunk several times recently, according to friends. You're called in when he's arrested for a DUI. 


    In 2001 there were 1.4 million arrests for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. That is 1 out of every 137 drivers.
