Jim Boggs, a longtime attorney in Platte County, has been sentenced to a probation period of two years with several conditions applied after pleading guilty to a DWI as a prior offender.
The action came last week in front of Judge J. Michael Rumley of Cass County, who had been appointed to hear the case after all judges in Platte County’s Sixth Judicial Circuit had recused themselves.
Boggs, 65, a former municipal judge at Weston and a former member of the Sixth Judicial Circuit panel in charge of selecting nominees for judgeship positions in Platte County, had previously pled guilty in 2012 to a 2011 DWI charge. For more on story.
