Im being charged with owi 3rd but I feel I have a very good case against it. Would very much appreciate legal advice.
I live & was charged with owi 3rd in Iowa. There is NO evidence against me except the cops testimony at trial. My current lawyer got a motion to suppress the video at the police station & there was no video unit installed on the cop car. I contested my license revocation via a phone trial with the DOT & the judge ruled in my favor stating that I did request a lawyer & the cop didnt give me one as he was sposed to per 804.20. On the video I am recorded telling him verbally several times that I WOULD take the data master test but he wanted me to sign a paper that I didnt understand which is why I asked for a lawyer. He got mad & took the paper back from me & I never did the data master as a result. Theres more important aspects to the case but space is very limited here.
The test refusal is suppressed. That doesn't mean there is no evidence. People are convicted for owi based on testimony...

When am I eligible for a license (if ever)?
I have two DUI convictions in Iowa and two DUI convictions in Illinois. The last time I had a driver's license it was issued by Iowa. Am I eligible for an Iowa driver's license after the 6 year revocation period (2 years temporary license permitted) or am I banned for life since my last DUI (number four) was an Illinois conviction and Illinois statutes state I am banned for life? I'm not sure how this works since I live on the Iowa/Illinois border and have been convicted in both states.
You should start by contacting the licensing agency in the state in which you want a driver license and see what you...
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...
