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...

I have an IA licence...DUI in IL. I got court supervision. How long is the summery suspension? SR22? other requirements in IA?
This is my first DUI and I failed the breath test.
More detail needed
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...
Can you get DWI after the fact?
I was driving home after meeting my friends for some drinks. On the way, I was pulled over for a faulty headlight. The officer asked me to blow into a Breathalyzer after noticing I was wearing a couple bar wristbands. I was over .08 after I blew. The officer did not further conduct any field sobriety test nor take me to the station. Instead he had my car parked and drove me home. Can I receive a DWI later in the mail?
Probably could but it is not likely. He didn't do any additional tests and there is always a question about the...
