A St. Louis police sergeant plans to sue after his department revoked his secondary job permit in an effort to silence his advocacy of legalizing marijuana. Sergeant Gary Wiegert is a lobbyist for Show-Me Cannabis, a pro-pot organization.

The department had granted Wiegert permission last month to work a secondary job as a lobbyist in Jefferson City. Weigert has also had permission to lobby for the Tea Party movement for the past three years.

Wiegert's most recent lobbying activity made headline recently, when Police Chief Sam Dotson denounced it as "not what is expected of our officers."

Wiegert’s attorney, Albert Watkins told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the sergeant's superiors had asked him on Friday to refrain from any political statements until they could meet to discuss the issue.

Then on Tuesday the department yanked Wiegert's approval to work the secondary job as a lobbyist. A move Watkins calls a violation of the sergeant's first amendment rights.

St. Louis, MO - AP - Missouri will get about $324,000 from a multistate settlement with Google over its collection of emails, passwords and other sensitive information transmitted on unprotected wireless networks.

Attorney General Chris Koster said Tuesday that he had signed on to the $7 million settlement between Google and several dozen states.

The settlement ends an inquiry dating to 2010. Google revealed at the time that company cars taking street-level photos for its online mapping service also collected personal data transmitted over wireless networks that didn't require passwords.

Koster says Google agreed in the settlement to destroy all data collected from unsecured wireless networks and not to collect such information in the future.

Google didn't acknowledge any wrongdoing in the settlement.

Clayton, MO - AP - A St. Louis County woman has been sentenced to three years in prison for a drunk-driving accident that killed a bicyclist.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 31-year-old Emily Hagan of Kirkwood will be eligible for parole after serving about one year in prison.

Authorities say Hagan's blood-alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit when she rear-ended and killed Samuel Scott last year in University City. The 19-year-old was riding his bike home from the pizza shop where he worked as a cook.

Hagan was charged with first-degree manslaughter. In a plea deal reached Friday, a judge reduced the manslaughter charge from a Class B to a Class C felony.
