State representative pleads guilty to DWI charge
Rep. Michael Corcoran, D-St. Ann, was given a suspended sentence and placed on probation for two years after pleading guilty Thursday in St. Louis County Circuit Court to a charge of driving while intoxicated.
Corcoran will have to attend a victim impact panel and do 40 hours of community service within the next six months, according to court records.
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.
