That's a great question for a Nebraska lawyer. Iowa lawyers are unlikely to know. Pose your question from a NE zip...

Does the Iowa law section 321J-17(3) apply to me?
I was plead guilty to an OWI 2nd and served my entire sentence or tho I thought. I was eligible for full reinstatement of my driving privilege on 6-30-2013. So I had my IID(intoxalock) removed 6-26-2013 being that due to the law at the current time was that they have to removed for full reinstatement of your DL. The next day I receive a paper in the mail advising me that do to Iowa law section 321J-17(3) that goes into effect 7-1-2013 I am required to keep my IID installed. The Iowa DOT is closed on 6-30-13 as well as the following day 7-1-13. I go to the DOT on 7-2-13 and can not get reinstated because I don't have an IID in my vehicle. I feel as if I have completed my entire sentence this law should not apply to me. Almost feels like for lack of a better example double jeopardy.
Generally, new laws in Iowa take effect on July 1 each year and are prospective in nature, meaning they apply to...

I think it does, but ask your insurance agent.
Is it normal/legal to have the Scram/breathalyzer requirement for 2 years?
I received the Scram breathalyzer requirement for the full 2 years of my probation for a non-drinking offense. Is that even legal for a judge to give that to me for that long? I did get an OWI previous to the offense that the judge ordered my breathalyzer, but I was already punished by another judge for that charge. I also have talked to people who have had a lot of drinking offenses and they only received the breathalyzer for 1 month at the most. I have to take the test 4 times every day, including the middle of the night. I don't get any sleep. I haven't drank alcohol for 7 months now and I still have 20 months to go for probation. I need to know if this is even a common sentence, because from what I have heard, it is an extremely long time to have someone have to do this.
Such things are up to the Judge. Since you had one previously, perhaps that's why the Court imposed it upon you. You...

DUI Charge in Iowa - .013, first offense. Looking to move to Colorado to be with family and get a fresh start. Not going to get a drivers license will just walk or use public transportation. Just want to know if I seek deferred judgment, will I be allowed to move while on probation? Also I was parked on the side of the interstate when a cop pulled up behind me. Does that give me anything?
With the test result you state, if you have a good driving record you may be eligible for a deferred judgment but there...
