No lawyers will return my call regarding a DUI case and now I may have to go to court on my own. Why can't I obtain council?
This is my first DUI and I have no other arrrests of any kind. I have contacted the only 4 local attorneys I can find that handle DUI cases and have called and left messages for them each twice over the last 10 day. My court date is in 2 days and I still haven't been able to schedule even a consultation. My case is not complicated, I am polite and respectful in my messages, and I am able to pay any fee's associates with hiring an attorney. What am i missing? I don't want to face this charge on my own.
There is a good chance the preliminary hearing will not take place because the county attorney's office will file a...
My brother was arrested over a week ago for 2nd offense OWI, he was also charged with eluding and assault on a peace officer?
Also about 3 months prior to that he was arrested and charged with Burglary in the 1st degree. My question is can he still get a deferred judgment for the burglary and also if he stays sober and completes treatment programs would he be able to avoid much jail or prison time for the OWI , assault and eluding charges?
Your brothers request for a deferred judgment is in serious jeopardy based upon him picking up additional charges. That...
I was arrested a few months back for 1st degree burglary as I went into my ex-wife's residence and assaulted her new boyfriend while I was intoxicated. This past weekend I got arrested for second-offense owi, eluding the police, and assaulting a police officer (which I really don't remember) and I bonded out again. I'm not a bad person, I've just been an alcoholic. I'm willing to do anything to overcome my alcoholism and try to keep my job. I know these are all serious allegations and I have an attorney I will talk to tomorrow, I 'm just hoping I can do treatment/rehab, and/or work release. My ex-wife also depends on my child support as that is her only income. Like I said I'm willing to do nearly anything to keep my job and out of long-term prison or jail.
The lawyer you talk to tomorrow will give you better advise than we here without reviewing the State's case. You said...
My son is 3.5 years in to 3rd DUI sentence in Iowa. He is getting an interlock device installed. Can he only drive to work?
Can he drive his 92yo grandfather to get groceries? How about getting groceries for himself?
The temporary restricted license permits only a handful of uses in addition to traveling back and forth from home to...
From what I gather, the arresting officer has 45 days to file and if it's not filed, the charges are dropped. Is this true?
If you were placed under arrest for OWI, then the state must file a trial information within 45 days. The remedy for...
I have contacted 4 (the only four I could find) attorney's in my area who handle DUI cases and for 2 weeks have not had any responses. My preliminary hearing is in 2 days and I will likely need to attend on my own. I have no criminal history, consented to tested (BAC 0.143), and there was no accident or injury involved. I am hoping to get a deferred judgment or a reduced charge (wet reckless or public intox, ect.) but I'm not sure if this is possible or even how to go about asking for this. What do I need to do at my preliminary hearing to head in the direction of my desired outcome?
The preliminary hearing will not take place if the county attorney files a trial information. You should call the Clerk...
