OWI in Iowa first offense ?
I was arrested for my 1st offense OWI in Iowa over the weekend. I was initially pulled over for my license plate light was out. I tested .155 on the breath test, but also demanded an independant blood test at my own expense. My blood sample was just thrown in with all my other personal belongings when I was put in the jail cell. It was not refridgerated. I guess I don't know what the proper procedure is for my blood sample, but I don't think it was handled right. Do I have any chance of getting this reduced or thrown out ? If I am convicted of the OWI, I will lose my job, home and be probably bankrupt ?
Unfortunately, not refrigerating the blood sample for hours or even days following the blood draw generally does not...

I'm Tyler Weitzel and I was charged with an owi when I wasn't the one operating or even Drivin the vehicle. I was drinking but I stopped drinking two hours before hand and I fell asleep in the passenger seat. I was woke up by the guy that was actually driving. He had stopped in a parking lot and said switch seats with me. Me thinking I was dreaming or thinking this was happening in my head said ok. Then out of nowhere a cop pulls up behind me with lights on and I still thought I was dreaming it wasn't until the officer had came to the window that I realized it wasn't a dream. I had told him what had happened and the guy beside me denied everything. I was then arrested for speeding owi and minor in possession. None of the beer was mine and the 25 year old I was with walked away with nothin.
You should know the people you are hanging around with better, and if you're a minor you know you can't drink,...

Is there any chance of not doing jail time if you blow a .178 for a driving under the influence of alcohol?
I'm 50 year old and have no criminal history. I was pulled off at the side of the road looking at my gps when an officer pulled up behind me, to see if I needed help. He tested me and I was under the influence of alcohol. I've done everything and paid all fines and fees, before I went to court. I know I still have to pay court cost, but is there anything I can do to get out of jail time?
Under these circumstances, I think it is best to speak with a local attorney. I am unsure how you could have paid all...
