Iowa judge questioned about underage drinking party

Posted: Jul 21, 2009 11:34 AM CDT

DES MOINES (KWWL) - Some trouble for Iowa's top judge, Iowa Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus.

It involves a party at her home where teenagers allegedly had access to alcohol.

Her husband and son are among those who face charges.

It's not clear where she was at the time of the party, or who provided the alcohol.

A court spokesman says it'd be inappropriate for Ternus to comment on any pending case.

What judge could fairly try this case in Iowa?  You have the "good ole boys club" to contend with.

Justice Ternus like Rep. Burt should resign immediately!  Neither will because both believe they along with their families are above the law.  Iowans take notice, there will be no accountability in the end.

Here are some more details from the Waterloo Courier.

Loud party led to arrests at Iowa chief justice's house                                                                                                                        
                                                                                               
                                By CHARLOTTE EBY, chareby@wcfcourier.com                                
                                                                                               
DES MOINES — A party last weekend at the Polk County home of Iowa Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus led to the arrest of her husband and alleged underage drinkers.

Deputy Jana Rooker, public information officer for the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, said police were called to the home at 9004 N.W. 121st St. about 1:30 a.m. on July 12 on a disturbance complaint.

When the deputy arrived, he found Dennis Drake, 57, in his truck at the end of the driveway, Rooker said.

Drake explained he was there to make sure that when people were leaving the residence they were not too drunk to drive, according to Rooker.

The deputy and Drake went around to the backyard where the deputy saw a bonfire with seven people around it and several beer cans lying on the ground nearby and in the fire, Rooker said.

At that point, Drake attempted to go back to the house against the deputy’s orders and was placed under arrest, police said. He was later released on a police citation charging him with interference with official acts, a simple misdemeanor.

Seven 19-year-olds were asked to submit to preliminary breath tests after the deputy detected an odor of alcohol on their breath, noticed they had red, watery eyes and that some of them were slurring their words, Rooker said.

Two of the teenagers did submit to breath tests and tested over the legal blood alcohol limit for driving of .08. One of those teens was picked up by her father and was released and cited for possession of alcohol under the legal age and public intoxication. The other teen was released on a citation for the same charges.

The other five teens who did not submit to breath tests, three men and two women, were taken to jail and charged with possession of alcohol under the legal age and public intoxication. A judge later dismissed the public intoxication charges against those two women, Rooker said.

Robert Drake, 19, who listed the address police were called to as his home, was among those taken to jail, Rooker said.

Rooker could not confirm that the incident occurred at the home of Ternus, but online records from the Polk County Assessor’s Office list the address in Grimes as being owned by Denny Drake and Marsha K. Ternus.

A call to a court spokesman after business hours Friday was not returned.

KCCI-TV in Des Moines reported that an Iowa Judicial Branch spokesman called the incident a family matter and said Chief Justice Ternus would not comment.

It comforting to know that this is stereotypical for the authorities that are making decisions for the "best interest" of our children and molding futures for families.

Chief Justice Marsha Ternus has defiantly lost the trust of the people she represents. Confidence in the Chief Justice has been shattered to say the very least. It is very evident that laws only apply to the poor. As for having not one but two attorneys in the household teaching youth it is OK to ignore the law if your a Drake or Ternus speaks extremely loud. Corruption within our government has reached an all time high. Take the wise time in the November 2010 elections to put those involved to the curb for trash pick up!

Prominent Lawyer Hosts Underage Beer Party?

 

A Story ran on the cover of Tuesday’s Des Moines Register revealing the details of a July 12 party hosted by Dennis Drake, the husband of Iowa Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus where seven teenagers were arrested for possession of alcohol. Mr. Drake, was also charged with interference with official acts. Police are investigating the possibility of charges associated with providing alcohol to minors.

 
Drake, who is the general counsel for the Iowa Health System, certainly understood that hosting a beer party for a group of teens not only violated the law, but also violated the principles of the organization he represents, and the justice system he and his wife are sworn to uphold.
 
It’s refreshing to know that the Polk County Sheriff’s office is willing to evenly enforce the law, even when the infraction takes place on property owned by the Chief Justice of the Iowa Supreme Court. It is also refreshing to see the Des Moines Register give appropriate coverage to a negative story about one of their heroes on the court.

What needs to happen next is for those in the legal system to deal with the infractions just as they would were the crimes committed on any other piece of property by any other citizen. Lawyers, judges, and their children should not receive special treatment, and with your involvement that won’t happen in this case. It’s time for average Iowans to engage in a modern day “hue and cry.”
 
hue and cry
Function: noun
Etymology: hue outcry
Date: 15th century
1 a: a loud outcry formerly used in the pursuit of one who is suspected of a crime b: the pursuit of a suspect or a written proclamation for the capture of a suspect
2: a clamor of alarm or protest(Source: Miriam Webster OnLine)
 
In common law, a hue and cry (Latin, hutesium et clamor, "a horn and shouting”) is a process by which bystanders are summoned to assist in the apprehension of a criminal who has been witnessed in the act of committing a crime. (Source: Wikipedia)
 
You can download an ethics complaint form from the Iowa Bar Association by clicking here
 
When filing a complaint, please identify the nature of the legal matter as facilitating the consumption of alcohol by underage drinkers, and interfering with the official acts of an officer of the law. You may attach copies of the Des Moines Register Article or other documents that help support the complaint.
 
If you would like to include statistics about underage drinking and the dangers associated with it, you can find information from:
 
The form requires information about Mr. Drake that is available on the Iowa Judicial Branch web page:
 
Full Name:      Dennis William Drake
Address:         1515 Linden St., Suite 100
                      Des Moines, IA 50309-3120
 
Return the completed form to:
                        Iowa Supreme Court Attorney Disciplinary Board
Judicial Branch Building
1111 East Court Avenue
Des Moines, IA 50319
 
You may also want to send a copy of the complaint to the Chairman of the Board at Iowa Health System:

It will be interesting to see if Ternus recuses herself when the court takes up the ethic committee's complaint against Drake.  By law, she is supposed to.  Even more interesting to see how many of the judges on the supreme court will recuse themselves because it was their colleague's husband.

پزشکان از تکنیک‌های جدیدی در درمان واریس با لیزر  استفاده می‌کنند تا رگ‌های واریسی و وریدهای عنکبوتی کوچک‌تر را ببندند. گاهی اوقات لیزر به عنوان مکمل اسکلروتراپی به منظور به حداکثر رساندن نتایج استفاده می‌شود. در این روش از هیچ برش یا سوزنی استفاده نخواهد شد.

تصمیم‌گیری درباره‌ی انجام هر گونه عمل جراحی زیبایی از جمله لیپوساکشن بسیار شخصی است. هر فرد باید با در نظر گرفتن خطرات و عوارض لیپوساکشن و آگاهی و درک صحیح این روش را انتخاب کند. زیرا برای تکمیل پرونده پزشکی فرد قبل از عمل از او فرم رضایت‌نامه‌ای مبنی بر آگاهی او از خطرات احتمالی و پذیرش ریسک عمل گرفته می‌شود.

به طور کلی بالون معده روشی بی‌خطر و مؤثر در کوتاه مدت در نظر گرفته می‌شود. اما می‌تواند عوارض جانبی مرتبط با آندوسکوپی یا مواد آرام‌بخش را داشته باشد. در حدود یک سوم از افرادی که درون معده خود بالون کار گذاشته‌اند بلافاصله درد و تهوع، ریفلاکس مری، سوء هاضمه، نفخ شکم و اسهال ناشی از آن را تجربه می‌کنند.
