My daughter's boyfriend coerced her to change seats with him when they got pulled over because he was driving without a license. When she was being given the field sobriety tests, she told the officers she wasn't the driver. She told the officers at the jail she was not the driver. Her boyfriend called the friend's house where they were headed and immediately admitted he was driving, he felt bad letting my daughter take the rap and he needed a ride. It was his car they were in. Weirdly, he slid over the front seat and tried to hide from the officers on the floor in the back. They only saw him when my daughter had no idea where the registration and insurance cards were kept and he spoke.

i got a dui on 1-1-12 and a second one on 1-14-12, but when the officer called in my information they said that i had a valid drivers licence. when he took me to the police station and ran my information nothing showed up for me having a previous DUI so he wrote on the citation that it was my first offence (i told him the truth, that it wasn't). I have court coming up on 1-20-12 for the first offence and 1-23-12 for the second offese, is there any way that i will be charged with two first time offenses? or will they just change the citation the officer wrote and charge me with a 1st and a 2nd? Also the officer gave me a temporary license for the next 10 days. i don't know what to do because i cannot afford a lawyer.

The sheriff didn't give me any tickets or take my license. I also called the Iowa dot and it is valid here. How do I get information about what is going on right now? Will I be able to not have jail time so I can keep my job? If jail time has to be served can it be done in Iowa on weekends?

July 2 i was pulled over in my apartment complex and blew a ,18. I have 0 offenses of any kind other a few speeding tickets. By doing community service or other things can all jail time be avoided?
That's a significant BAC. Best move now is to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney in Cedar Rapids.
They didn't give me a ticket and gave me my license back to me. I also submitted to both the blower and blood test. Will this count as a second offense? Can I drive until I receive the ticket? Will I be able to get a work permit in Iowa?
