The future son-in-law of Missouri judge Jerry Harmison had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of almost twice the legal limit when he was charged with DUI in February 2016.
Clinton J. Toedtmann, who is set to marry Jenna Harmison on Oct. 13 in Ozark, Missouri, pled guilty in May 2017 and will be in the midst of a two-year probation when he steps to the altar on Saturday.
Perhaps that is a touch of karma for Judge Harmison, who found my wife, Carol, guilty of "assault of a law enforcement officer" in a case where there was no probable cause to support charges, much less a prosecution, and the "victim" admitted he initiated contact with Carol, meaning she could not be guilty. On top of that, Harmison ignored post-trial motions that showed he was, by law, disqualified from hearing the case due to a conflict involving his other son-in-law -- attorney and former prosecutor Eric Ryan Olson (more on that coming soon); that cop-witnesses presented rampant inconsistent statements under oath, and at least one clearly committed perjury; that all evidence was due to be suppressed because of an unlawful eviction that violated the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Judge Harmison will at least have the peace that comes with welcoming a son-in-law who has a criminal record because of a crime (a serious offense, by most any standard) he actually committed. Meanwhile, the crooked Harmison -- an appointee of disgraced former Gov. Eric Greitens -- has left Carol with a criminal record for an offense even his own judgment shows she did not commit. In fact, Harmison is so crooked and incompetent that his judgment does not even say what offense Carol supposedly committed. That should make us all feel confident in the judiciary.

How serious was Toedtmann's offense? His breath test registered .143%, while the legal limit in Missouri is 0.08%. In other words, Toedtmann was behind the wheel while seriously sloshed. In a Probable Cause Statement, Officer James Whitehead said the offense occurred at 23:03 (11:03 p.m.) on 2/25/16 at the intersection of E. Elm St. and S. South Ave. in Springfield, MO. From the PC Statement. (The PC Statement, Misdemeanor Information, and Commitment After Jail Sentence are embedded at the end of the post.):
On 02-25-2016, I was on patrol driving east on Walnut from Grant. I observed a black Chevrolet Cruz disobey a stop sign at Main and College then failed to signal at Campbell and Elm. I stopped the vehicle at South and Elm and contacted the driver who was identified as Clinton Toedtmann. 
While speaking with Toedtmann, I could smell an odor of intoxicants in the vehicle. Toedtmann exited the vehicle to take the Standard Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs). Prior to the tests, Toedtmann advised me that he had drink (sic) two to three beers. I observed Toedtmann's eyes and they appeared to be watery and bloodshot.

Toedtmann took the tests and indicated on several clues of impairment. Toedtmann also provided a sample of his breath into a Preliminary Breath Test and the sample showed positive for alcohol. Toedtmann was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated and transported to the jail. While at the jail, Toedtmann consented to giving a sample of his breath, and the sample showed showed a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of .143 %. Toedtmann was issued Greene County Circuit Court citations for Driving While Intoxicated and Disobeying a Stop Sign.
Public records indicate Toedtmann spent 48 hours in jail, and he wound up with the mugshot above as a keepsake.
