The Chief of Police of Stover pled guilty today to the charges of Driving While Intoxicated and got a 90 days suspended sentence. He also pled guilty to the charge of following too close and got a $300.00 fine.
Now tell me he didn't get special favors!!!! What a Load of Crap!!! This was a least his second DUI. Why didn't he lose his license for a year like anyone else would? Why didn't he have to get the ignition start system in his car? Why didn't he have to do SATOP?
Oh.....don't forget....the news also said he retains his position as Chief of Police in Stover.
Let's face it folks......Stover is done for!!!

Welcome to Shithole, MO. Everybody that shops or pays taxes there contributes to the problem. The only way to improve the place is to make it a ghost town.

It is true...some people do get lesser fines when they go to court. But the LAW says that you lose your license and there should be no way around the LAW. The LAW also says that you have to go to SATOP classes. The LAW also says that after your second DUI you have to get the Intoxaloc installed on your vehicle. This was his second DUI .... AND he hit a pregnant woman!!!! And he gets N O T H I N G !!!! It is outrageous.
Most (not all)of the police here in Morgan Co think they are above the law. Unfortunately for the rest of us who try very hard to abide by the law....the Judge just proved that police officers under his jurisdiction don't have to follow the law. That really sheds a very dim light for Morgan Co. and gives the radical police officers free reign to do whatever they darn well please!

OK folks lets keep it civil and keep in mind that this was actually the first time that Trampus was arrested for DWI, he was driving his private vehicle and not on duty, it was snowing and the slick road contributed to the accident according to the investigating officer,the has already done his SATOP program and served a driver's license suspension and had to get SR-22 insurance for this case. The pregnant woman and her child he hit mercifully didn't sustain any serious injury, making an assault charges a little bit lacking in jury appeal, and the Highway Patrol recommended the misdemeanor charge rather than proceeding with the more serious assault charge. The suspend jail sentence and the fine are actually more serious consequences than most first offenders receive and appropriate to the aggravating factors at play here (i.e. accident, law enforcement officer). While Jackson will also likely face some disciplinary consequences from the State of Missouri with regard to his police certification, although he in not likely to be displaced from being a police officer because of this, and so ultimately the issue of his police Chief status if up to the City of Stover, and the court has done its job which is treating him just like anybody else - no special treatment to it.

Another ridiculous aspect of this is that if YOU get a 2nd DWI, you can't get a Concealed Carry Endorsement; but the City of Stover issues a gun and badge to someone who wouldn't qualify for a CCW permit!

Yes, indeed. Maybe Cody Worthly could shed a little light on this for the public.

Does anyone know what happened to the Felony Assault Charge, associated with the Driving While Intoxicated Charge? Was that dropped and slipped under the carpet?

If you would read the post from "Some perspective" you would have answers to your questions on how the case went down.

No....that is that person OPINION of "how the case went down". Does anyone know the TRUTH!?! That is doubtful because any time you are dealing with government/police dept, etc...there is NO TRUTH INVOLVED.

Having spent some time around Prosecutors, much of what is written here is consistent with typical case resolution elsewhere.

The statement "The pregnant woman and her child he hit mercifully didn't sustain any serious injury, making an assault charges a little bit lacking in jury appeal" rings true to my experience.

However "the Highway Patrol recommended the misdemeanor charge rather than proceeding with the more serious assault charge" is a BS statement, calling into question the rest of it. Once a case is filed and set for trial, no LE agency is involved in its resolution beyond testimony in court. They may be consulted by a Prosecutor and they may agree--or disagree--with that Prosecutor's plea offer. But they don't 'recommend' squat.
