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...

If you are arrested for "serious injury by Vehicle - OWI" in Iowa. Can you plea bargain? What is the minimum sentence?
If you are arrested for "serious injury by Vehicle - OWI" in Iowa. Can you plea bargain? What is the minimum sentence? Facts: - First OWI offense - Proven accident and driving as in this scenerio the person in question, hit a DOT workers truck and it caused a worker to break his leg. The OWI driver, also went to the hospital and blood was tested at the hospital. Alcohol was found however less than legal limit. (which I believe is .08) Ambien also found in the blood, so there is proof ambien was in the bloodstream at the same time of the alcohol contributing to the impairment. So is a plea an option? What is the minimum jail time likely in this scenerio?
The minimum sentence would be probation, but there are numerous options available.

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...
