What does it mean when someone's role in a criminal case is the payor?
Person's role in the case is listed as payor. It's a criminal drug case, so curious what that means.

Underage drinking charge will I be drug tested on probation
Mom called the police on me while I was at home because I was drunk (not my legal guardian) couldn't figure out how to blow into the test so they put me as non compliant and he charged me with possession of alcohol even though i didn't have any on me(?) he went off the fact that I smelled like it now I'm on probation but my first appointment is 17 days after I was charged I'm just wondering if they'll drug test me at the appointment
Alcohol and drug tests are typical in these scenarios. You should plan on being tested. If you come up dirty, it doesn'...

Can I appeal my ignition interlock situation ?
I received and was convicted of my last OWI back in 2006 (Iowa). In 2013 I was able to get my drivers license reinstated while living in AZ. I recently moved back to Iowa and because I was considered an IA resident once again, I needed to switch to an IA drivers license. But, in order to do so I was required to have an ignition interlock system installed for one year. How is this possible? First, the last offense was 11 years ago, plus I had been driving for the previous 4 years in AZ without issue. Is there any way around this?
The ignition interlock requirement is an administrative action by Iowa DOT as a condition to granting you a license or...

Will I be charged with a first or second OWI?
In 2011 I was charged with an OWI, as a minor, in Black Hawk County, IA. My deposition status reads that this case is dismissed. I still lost my license for six months, had to pay a civil penalty, and have SR-22 insurance on my car. I just got arrested for an OWI September 16, 2016 and on my police report is says OWI 1st offense and when I appeared for court the following morning the charges indicated on the copy say OWI 1st offense as well. I'm just wondering can I still be charged with a 2nd OWI if both statements say 1st offense? The DOT is considering this as my second alcohol-related driving offense so I am losing my license for a year not followed by Interlock and probation for a year after that. Any advice?
You need a criminal defense attorney who is also experience in dealing with the Department of Transportation. As a...

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...
