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 ?

I was pulled over last June for excessive speed and then was arrested for Second offense OWI Refusal to Submit to chemical testing. My first OWI was deferred but I am still being charged with second offense. My lawyer got the Refusal part thrown out, consequently the DOT removed the charges from my driving record. However, criminally, I am still waiting conviction, and at that point I fear that I will lose my license. I really just want to know, is this the right course of action?

I'm completing a background check for a new job and I need to list out any "Criminal Convictions" I've had and this is the only thing I think would be close to one. It was a 1st offence back in 2005. I know this is a misdemeanor, but is a misdemeanor a criminal conviction?
It would matter if you received a deferred judgment and successfully discharged the probation. If you had the deferred...
