Driving and boating under the influence of alcohol was the topic of a Nov. 10 presentation made to yachting enthusiasts by Attorney Kenneth M. Poole, Jr., a partner with the Sarasota law firm of Syprett, Meshad, Resnick, Lieb, Dumbaugh, Jones, Krotec & Westheimer. At the Yacht Rodders Club meeting, held at the Sarasota Yacht Club, Poole discussed blood alcohol content, how alcohol affects women and men differently, how slowly alcohol leaves the body, and how to determine how long to wait and when it is safe to operate a yacht or drive a car after consuming alcohol.
Poole handles criminal defense cases for Syprett Meshad, and focuses his legal practice on family and criminal law. He is a member of the Florida Bar and is licensed to practice before all Florida State Courts. To learn more, visit http://smrl.com/staff/kenneth-m-poole-jr/.
