I am on probation for a DUI and just got a probation violation for THC, however my PO said I could still move to Colorado and drop UA's for her there and do phone calls. Would that mean I would have to transfer probation to that state or am I still under Iowa probation.? I know you have to be accepted by the probation places in a new state and wondered how I could make that more likely for myself.
You will still be supervised out of Iowa. Most states will not accept probation transfers unless a felony is involved.
this is the Iowa Code 123.46 (5) "Upon the expiration of two years following conviction for a violation of this section, a person may petition the court to exonerate the person of the conviction, and if the person has had no other criminal convictions, other than simple misdemeanor violations of chapter 321 during the two-year period, the person shall be deemed exonerated of the offense as a matter of law.

I had no court date nor anyway to explain of my case of just going around the corner to park my car somewhere else. I blew under .08 at the scene so shouldn't that mean something? I was just seeing if there was anywa

I was arrested for OWI first offence in november and already had my internship offer in hand. Now the last part of the internship is to get the criminal background check done. They want to use Hire right. No other criminal history. Also the prosecutor wants me to accept deferred judgement which probably I will take. So is it better to go through background check before accepting the deferred judgement or should I accept the judgement and then go through the background check.
The background check will still probably show the arrest without any disposition. The deferred judgment will still...
