Corcoran DWI hearing set for Thursday
A 9 a.m. Thursday hearing is scheduled in the DWI case against Rep. Michael Corcoran, D-St. Ann. The hearing was originally scheduled for April 23 in St. Louis County Circuit Court, but was postponed at Corcoran's request until after the Missouri legislative session ended.
The same thing happened with a hearing to determine whether Corcoran should be allowed to keep his driver's license. Initially, that hearing was scheduled for April 30, but has been postponed to July 29 at Corcoran's request.
A scheduled hearing Thursday on whether Rep. Michael Corcoran, D-St. Ann, should be allowed to keep his driver's license was pushed back to July 29.
Corcoran's license was automatically taken away following the Feb. 6 DWI arrest, but he received a stay and has been allowed to continue driving.
News accounts of his arrest indicate Corcoran was stopped by the Missouri Highway Patrol for weaving on I-70. Corcoran refused a breathalyzer test. In addition to the DWI charge, he is charged with failure to drive in a single lane, and failure to signal.
