John C. Boyer, Trial Attorney

John hails from rural south-west Missouri and spent more than a decade in the U.S. Army. While in the service, John was assigned as a military police soldier and NCO and spent time conducting both law enforcement operations here in the US and supported combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. John earned his Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice while on active duty.

After receiving an honorable discharge, John attended Washington University in St. Louis School of Law, where he earned his juris doctor. During school he interned for the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Illinois, a civil law firm, the St. Louis County Prosecutor's Office, and the St Louis Circuit Attorney's Office.

Once admitted to the bar, John worked as an assistant prosecuting attorney in Greene County, then went on to provide legal defense on behalf of insurance companies, and recently worked as the senior assistant prosecuting attorney in Lafayette County, where he primarily prosecuted a felony and misdemeanor case load. He also provided legal counsel to county office holders on matters ranging from land use and zoning law to the open records law.

Today John stands ready to serve the community with their legal needs.

Q. I got a ticket in May 2022 in Jefferson County, MO but nothing shows up
A: A statute of limitation limits the time a case can be filed against a person. The time period begins to run on the day after the incident (i.e. the day a person receives a citation). The statute of limitations for infractions is six months. Section 556.036.2(3), RSMo. Misdemeanors have a one year statute of limitations. Section 556.036.2(2), RSMo. Speeding, absent some unusual circumstances, would fall under either the infraction or misdemeanor class of crimes in Missouri. There are exceptions to permit a longer charging period, but there is not sufficient information to consider whether they would be applicable here. Consequently, a ticket for speeding, absent exceptional circumstances, would not be able to be filed after May of 2023.

While Casenet is a great tool, it generally only reflects State level charges. It is possible that a municipality within the county charged you and that would not be reflected on Casenet. For example, if an Arnold Police Officer issued the citation for speeding, he may have presented that to the municipal prosecutor, and you would be charged in the City of Arnold.
