Is there any leeway on the BAC reading (.172) for a deferred judgment 1st offense?
I was arrested for 1st offense DUI. Pulled over for speeding by a state trooper in training. I was surprised to be pulled over because I wasn't going more than 5-6 miles over the limit. I was immediately asked to exit the vehicle and sit in the troopers car. I complied because I figured I had no choice. She asked me how fast I was going, I didn't know, but it wasn't much over the limit, was I speeding? What was my speed? She wouldn't tell me... I was frustrated and asked again why I was pulled over. She said 'greater than 60.' (55 mph road). She said she smells alcohol. I had two drinks earlier in the day at lunch 4-5 hours prior. My wife and I stoppped at a friends who's family runs a winery. I had 3 small glasses of wine that was being processed to try it out. I was okay to drive so we left. I did sobriety tests in the dark, along the gravel shoulder with cars passing. I voiced my frustration with the uneven surface, flashing lights, and gravel. To my shock by the time we returned to the station more than an hour and a half later I blew a .17 and was in jail until 10 the next morning. Is there any chance for a deffered? Clean record. I work in finance. No charges ever.

How long before they charge you with a DUI?
I was in a single car accident a week ago under the influence of alcohol. I live in Iowa and was airlifted from the scene. The police know I'm currently home but have not charged me with a DUI yet. Is this normal...or possibly did they over look that I was under the influence. The hospital took alcohol blood test?????

Will my friend be taken into custody immediately if sentenced to jail time for misdemeanor conviction?
My friend has a sentencing district court date next week. He had an arrest warrant for him in Iowa for multiple unpaid fines for driving on suspended license , no car insurance and he is now considered a habitual offender. His license is now barred.

His violations go back 2 years with no payment from him and him not showing up to past court dates.
Each county and each judge handles these situations differently. Your friend might go to jail immediately if any jail...
