How much prison time am i looking at?
I was in a owi car accident in iowa. I have four priors within the last ten years from california. I had no license, insurance and four people were injured. All had bruising and one fractured hand. How many years in prison am I looking at?
It would depend on what the 4 priors were, and what the current charges are. A 3rd offense (the highest in IOWA) OWI in...
What will happen in court for dwsl in iowa?
I was pulled over a few days ago and told I had a suspended license. I had no prior knowledge of the suspension. The officer gave me a summons to court and said to drive straight home. I have never broken the law and am not sure what to expect when I go to court.
I am not licensed to practice law in Iowa, but my question is why was the license suspended for you? Can you go to the...
How To Get Copy of DUI class certificate that was completed.
My brother here in Iowa had a DUI few years ago (he been using bus forever since then to get around or rides from family ).He completed all the classes, took all the courses and paid the fines as required . However recently he went to get reinstated and get his Drivers License back. He took the written test, passed it and took the driving course and passed it as well. He had his picture taken and was just about to get his license when the clerk at the License branch said the State of Missouri put a block on it pending wanting a copy of his completion of DUI he took. Unfortunately my brother cannot locate his DUI certificate and the place where he took his DUI class years ago are no longer there. We thought surely the Iowa DMV had specific records from the instructor so they could fax it Missouri DMV but they do not. We were shocked Iowa DMV did not have copy of his DUI certificate completion they only had record that he had completed the DUI course. Now we are hearing he might have to go through the DUI program and all the cost and while process again and that just seems so disappointing. Can you advise us what we can do?
Call his attorney for his Iowa OWI case. S/he should have a copy of the certificate. If not, the clerk of court should...
Baby drug tested with positive marijuana results. Mother smoked a few times before she knew she was pregnant. DHS now want rehab
Baby drug tested with positive marijuana results. Mother smoked a few times before she knew she was pregnant. DHS now want rehab which completely unnecessary. What are my rights to prove drugs innocence without rehab or weekly visits? She doesn't do drugs and is a nurse which could cause her to lose her license.
There's not much that can be done other than comply with DHS. Babies aren't positive for marijuana unless mom used...
Can medical problems influence a breath test ?
The Breathalyzer and Acid Reflux People suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) have an increased risk of getting a false-positive result above the legal limit on a breath-alcohol test. Even if only a very small amount of alcohol is consumed, many GERD patients have tested above the legal limit of 0.08, placing them in danger of a DWI conviction. Because of all the above factors it is essential that you contact a DWI defense lawyer if you are ever arrested for drunk driving. I had smoked a ciggerets right before because he told me to put it out And used hairspray earlier Also I have pkd And have had a history of high keytones Also I have acid reflux Take medication pertini And take meds for anxiety

How much time between breathalyzer tests?
I live in a halfway house I return from work just before 3 in the morning. They breathalyze to me because my eyes were red after working almost a 16-hour day. The first test came back .23 so they did another test the second one came back as .26. That come back is .25. I asked for them to redo it they declined I asked the sheriff that was there if he could use his he said he didn't want to get in the middle. I was booked in at the jail at 3:23 a.m. I asked the station if they would do a test on me they declined also. The next day I received a fax from the halfway house they said they had made a mistake it was actually .023. How can there be such a big difference and why was I refused more testing?
Breathalyzers (that are used in the field or Preliminary Breath Tests - PBTs) are required to be calibrated regularly...
