Carthage Police arrests Ace Mohr for DUI, motion to revoke bond filed
Jasper County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Nate Dally filed a motion Monday to revoke Mohr's bond following Mohr's March 12 arrest by the Carthage Police Department for driving under the influence of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
During the arrest of the Defendant by the Carthage Police Department the Defendant refused to provide a sample of his blood in accordance with Missouri Implied Consent, a test that would have allowed the court to know if the Defendant was or was not using controlled substances.
The bond revocation motion includes a listing of the felonies with which Mohr has been charged, including possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, distribution of heroin, possession of alprazolam with intent to distribute, receiving stolen property, two counts of possession of methamphetamine, possession of Dilaudid 5, and possession of methadone.
The Jasper County Prosecuting Attorney's office objected to Mohr's bond being reduced during a November 4 hearing, but Judge David Mouton set bond at $5,000 surety.
In the motion he filed for bond reduction, Mohr's attorney, Jonathan Pierce, said his client has been accepted into Lazarus House, a Christian-based recovery center that deals with alcohol and drug abuse, including methamphetamines.
Mohr checked into the facility, but Dally says Lazarus House has provided him with no information on whether Mohr is still receiving treatment and had not acknowledged Mohr violated any terms of the program with his March 12 arrest.
Mohr has also been arrested for armed robbery three times. On two of the occasions, both in Carthage, former Jasper County Prosecuting Attorney Dean Dankelson dropped the charges. In the third case, a reported armed robbery at 7th and Moffet in Joplin in August, no charges were ever filed.
