Officer gets OK to lobby for pro-marijuana group

Wednesday, 03 July 2013 10:12 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson has reversed course and will allow a veteran officer to moonlight as a lobbyist for a pro-marijuana organization.

 

   Dotson wrote to police Sgt. Gary Wiegert on Tuesday saying his request for "secondary employment" will be allowed.

 

   Wiegert filed a complaint earlier this year with U.S. District Court claiming the department violated his First Amendment rights to free speech for refusing to allow him to lobby on behalf of Show-Me Cannabis.

 

   Wiegert worked for three years as a lobbyist for the St. Louis Tea Party. In February, he submitted a new application to the department. The application did not require him to state for whom he would lobby. It was approved but revoked after the department learned Wiegert was lobbying for the pro-marijuana group.

 

Former Ill. Gov. George Ryan released from custody

Wednesday, 03 July 2013 09:05 Published in Local News

CHICAGO (AP) - Former Illinois Gov. George Ryan is officially a free man.

 

   The 79-year-old spent more than five years in prison for corruption, and in January he was moved to home confinement.

 

   Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke says Ryan was released Wednesday morning, a day ahead of schedule.

 

   Ryan spent months in his Kankakee home, only allowed to leave for events such as doctor's appointments or to attend church.

 

   He was sentenced to 6 { years in prison in 2007, but his sentence was reduced for good behavior.

 

   The Republican was convicted of racketeering, conspiracy, tax fraud and making false statements to the FBI in 2006. He was also accused of stopping an investigation into secretary of state employees accepting bribes for truck driver's licenses.

 

Mo. AG says state may have to use gas chamber

Wednesday, 03 July 2013 08:05 Published in Local News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Attorney General Chris Koster says Missouri may have to resort to using the gas chamber to carry out death sentences as an "unintended consequence" of the state Supreme Court's refusal to set execution dates.

 

   Executions have been on hold in Missouri since the state Supreme Court has declined to set execution dates. The court says execution dates would be "premature" until a federal legal challenge is resolved regarding the use of the drug propofol as Missouri's new execution method.

 

   Koster told The Kansas City Star on Tuesday (http://bit.ly/13lennE ) that if the court doesn't change course, the legislature may have to fund alternative execution methods. The only execution methods authorized in Missouri are lethal gas and injection.

 

   Koster says the gas chamber may be the last option to enforce state law.
