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 can I minimize the fines for my DUI?
I recently got charged with DUI. I don't have a very good income and I've heard of people paying over 5,000$ in total fees. I barely make that in 6 months. Is there a way to make that price drop a lot lower?

Can I expunge my record if I was charged with an OWI first offense and plead to lesser sentence of a public intoxication?
I was charged with an OWI first offense (321J.2(A)) and pled to an amended charge of public into, simple misd, 123.46. It has been done since 9/2012. And I have had no other criminal charges since then. I want this off my record for obvious reasons with my future career. Do I need a lawyer to complete this or can I do it on my own? What would be the steps?

Could I go to jail for testing positive on a drug test after getting a DUI?
I recently got charged with a DUI. When they took me in I chose to do a drug test instead of having my license taken away for a year. I will test positive for marijuana. So when they find out that, could they place more charges on me? Note: I was taken in for being under the influence of marijuana.
