Missouri police hand over concealed carry database to feds

Under state law, certain measures exist to protect Missouri residents from governmental overreach or invasion of privacy. When these laws are obeyed and enforced, it helps keep the criminal justice system fair and credible. But when they are not, the results can cause unease for Missourians - and civil liberties advocates across the country.

Missouri may have to wait for criminal code reform

On our blog we've mentioned several times an effort to overhaul Missouri's criminal code, which started with a task force and, most recently, involves a proposed bill in the state legislature. The drafters of the legislation and the panel that advised them set out to change the state's criminal code to make it more fair, consistent and cost-effective for the state.

High court rules for privacy in drug dog case

The Supreme Court recently issued a ruling that could strike a blow to law enforcement agencies that rely heavily on drug-sniffing dogs for evidence in cases of drug charges. The court held 5-4 that an officer could not use a drug dog to sniff around the outside of a house where they suspect illegal activity.

What happens if your roommate's selling drugs?

Last week we talked about a group of search warrants that were executed at Missouri State University on suspicion of drug charges. In one of those cases a suspect's roommates allowed law enforcement officials to search their bedrooms that were attached to a common area.

What to do if your guilty plea was a mistake

Last week we talked about vacating criminal convictions and some of the circumstances that can justify vacating a verdict. Juror misconduct, a biased court and an improperly-handled plea deal are all factors that can lead a court to vacate a conviction, treating the trial and the ruling as if they never happened.

When can you vacate a criminal conviction?

A wrongful conviction can turn your life upside-down. It can leave a lasting mark on your life as a criminal record, which can affect your future employment prospects and, in some cases, even where you can live and visit. A criminal conviction can also carry hefty penalties like fines and jail time.

Missouri public defenders take on more cases

In October we discussed a Missouri Supreme Court ruling that the state's public defenders may refuse new cases if their caseloads are overwhelming. The ruling came among concerns that high caseloads and limited state resources were making it impossible for public defenders to adequately represent their low-income clients.

Know your Miranda rights in the event of an arrest

Anyone who has seen an action movie or crime drama can probably recite their Miranda Rights on command: "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be held against you," and so on. This just illustrates how integral Miranda Rights are to our nation's criminal justice system.

Supreme Court considers drug dogs and the Fourth Amendment: part two

Last week we introduced two cases recently heard by the United States Supreme Court. The court has taken up several issues surrounding the use of drug-sniffing dogs in arrests and criminal investigations that could have lasting effects on Americans' due process rights and criminal defense.

Supreme Court considers drug dogs and the Fourth Amendment: part one

The Supreme Court recently heard two cases involving drug charges that were facilitated by drug-sniffing dogs. Their ruling in these matters could have broad implications for criminal defense and redefine the rights of the accused, particularly in drug cases.
