Clinton J. Toedtmann brings some baggage into his marriage with Judge Jerry Harmison's daughter, Jenna -- in the form of a 2017 conviction for DUI


Clint Toedtmann and Jenna Harmison
Missouri judge Jerry Harmison has a tendency to issue guilty verdicts that have no basis in fact or law. He also has a tendency to let law-enforcement thugs enter property where they have no lawful right to be. My wife, Carol, and I have seen Harmison's dubious tendencies in an up close and personal way.

So perhaps it's only fitting that an individual with a legitimate criminal record -- a serious offense, for which he pled guilty -- is about the join the judge's family. You could call it karma.

Clinton J. Toedtmann is set to marry Jenna Harmison (the judge's daughter) on Oct. 13 (Saturday) in Ozark, MO. That will give Judge Harmison a second son-in-law. We soon will be reporting on some curious machinations regarding his other son-in-law, attorney Eric Ryan Olson, and that clearly had an impact on the bogus guilty verdict Harmison issued against Carol -- in a case where SHE was charged with misdemeanor "assault of a law enforcement officer," even though the cops broke HER arm. Let's get serious: Who assaulted who here?

The answer is obvious, and Carol intends to pursue criminal charges against thug-cops and prosecutors under federal civil-rights law (42 U.S.C 242 -- deprivation of rights under color of law). Defendants likely will include Harmison son-in-law No. 1, Eric Ryan Olson. (More on him in upcoming posts.)

As for son-in-law (in waiting) No. 2, Clint Toedtmann brings heavy baggage to his nuptials with Jenna Harmsion -- in the form of a 2017 DUI conviction. Springfield, MO, police arrested Toedtmann for DUI and failure to stop at a stop sign in May 2016. (See case.net, State v. Clinton J. Toedtmann, 1631-CRO4345.)

Toedtmann pled guilty on April 5, 2017 and was sentenced on May 31, 2017. Here is the docket entry for his sentencing:

Sentencing Hearing Held

STATE BY APA DODD. DEFT WITH ATTY RUSSELL. JUDGMENT: SIS FOR 2 YRS CASP 3 PROBATION ON BOTH CTS -80 HRS CASP W/I 6 MONTHS, DEFT TO SERVE 48 HRS IN GCJ BEGINNING 6/2/17 AT 8:00 PM UNTIL 6/4/17 AT 8:00 PM. DEFT DTO FILE SATOP COMPLETION W/I 2 WKS PLUS COSTS INCLUDING CVCF and 160 LER. DEFT TO CONSUME NO ALCOHOL DURING PERIOD OF PROBATION. STAY TO 6/29/17. JUDGE IMHOF/JFC COPY OF COMMITMENT LETTER TO GCJ. /JFC

Here are the key points we take from this:

(1) Toedtmann received a Suspended Imposition of Sentence (SIS), with two years of probation;

(2) Toedtmann was sentenced to 80 hours of community service via the Missouri CASP program;

(3) Toedtmann was sentenced to 48 hours in the Greene County Jail -- from 8 p.m. on 6/2/17 to 8 p.m. on 6/4/17;

(4) Toedtmann is not to consume alcohol during his probationary period, which is ongoing and apparently is supervised.


That last item might put some restrictions on any reception planned for the Harmison-Toedtmann wedding.

An example of another elite (or about to be an elite, by marriage), who thinks he can be sloshed behind the wheel of a vehicle, and that's OK -- for him.

Is this really worth a post?

Missouri sure seems to have its share of drunk drivers.

Yep, they turn them into prosecutors. Just ask Nicholas Jain, who won his race to be DA of Dunklin County.

Funny that Harmison casts judgments on other people's families, but he can't seem to manage his own. Typical Republican.

Interesting point. Keep in mind that Harmison was nominated by Eric Greitens, who likely was the most corrupt governor in the country, before resigning in disgrace.

All states have their share of drunk drivers -- and that doesn't include all the distracted drivers. It's a huge problem that takes a massive physical, psychic, and financial toll on our society.

In my view, that's why this is newsworthy, beyond the fact the drunk driver is connected to a judge who rules on drunk driving cases.

Is this Toedtmann guy a celebrity or something?

It’s the way of the Vikings. We take their daughters & soon to be ex-wives & get them pregnant with our children. The only way to conquer rich, White privilege is to breed it out of them. The Christian god, Jesus Christ died on the cross, but Odin is a living god.

What does that have to do with anything?

You never fail to have a fascinating take on things.

Young Ms. Harmison is easy on the eyes, but she's going to need some luck dealing with a husband who already has a proven problem with alcohol.

Robby Scott Hill --

I like your ideas about conquering the rich. If you run for president, you have my vote.

Rob is way more qualified than the goof we call "president" now.

I obviously think it is, or I wouldn't have posted it. You have a problem with posts that are based 100 percent on public records, copies of which we will be running?

Post a set of eyes at the reception. Toedtmann is not supposed to drink during his probationary period. My guess is he's going to want to have a couple of drinks before he gets in the crib with the Judges daughter after the reception. Be a shame if he had to spend his wedding night in the "Pokie" for breaking probation.

Thanks for an interesting comment. I have a followup post coming (probably tomorrow, 10/11) about Toedtmann's probationary terms, etc., but you are ahead of me on that.

Feel free to contact me at (205) 381-5673 -- that's an Alabama cell phone number, but we are in Springfield for now -- and would be glad to discuss, keeping your ID under wraps.
