My daughter was charged with OWI, no insurance and failure to maintain control in Iowa. Legal advice recommended?
She is 22 and otherwise has a spotless record. She had just purchased the car the day before so had not gotten the insurance finalized yet. If she blew a .15, would she be able to just plead herself and get the deferred or would you recommend an attorney help her. She has no $ for the attorney.

They could not give me any reason that they stopped me, never said that I did not follow traffic laws. They said i did not pass sobriety test, I did not blow into a breathalyzer or take a blood test.
You may have a good case to fight the matter based on a lack of probable cause to stop you. Get a lawyer and fight the...
When considering a Petition to Revoke, who makes the inital determination to file when probation is viloated?
Does the state's attorney automatically file the PTR or does this come from the community probation officer? Does the PO have the discretion to choose to file or not file a PTR? In my case, I am on probation for a DUI from 2 years ago. Recently, I received a public intoxication charge, which viloates the terms of probation. On instruction from my PO, I have scheduled a substance abuse evaluation and will undergo treatment if recommended. However, I have not yet to see a PTR filed in my case.
It's the probation officer who files a notice of violation of the terms of probation with the court. That is typically...
I received a P.A.U.L.A at a state park and the DNR officer did not change the breathalyzer tip from the previous person as well as incorrectly dated my court date for 6/18/12 when the ticket occurred on 6/23/12 . What can I do ?
The officer should change the blow tube in the preliminary breath test device between subject tests. Even though the...

i got a dui on 1-1-12 and a second one on 1-14-12, but when the officer called in my information they said that i had a valid drivers licence. when he took me to the police station and ran my information nothing showed up for me having a previous DUI so he wrote on the citation that it was my first offence (i told him the truth, that it wasn't). I have court coming up on 1-20-12 for the first offence and 1-23-12 for the second offese, is there any way that i will be charged with two first time offenses? or will they just change the citation the officer wrote and charge me with a 1st and a 2nd? Also the officer gave me a temporary license for the next 10 days. i don't know what to do because i cannot afford a lawyer.
Plead not guilty at your arraignment and get a public defender. You really need an agressive DUI attorney, but you...
I got a minor in consumption ticket in Illinois, but there was no proof that I had been drinking, should I get a lawyer?
I was in IL for a formal. We were staying at a Resort and had a total of 9 people (4 couples & 1 single) staying in our house. 3 of the 9 people staying were over the age of 21. On the 2nd night of our stay there between 4-7 18 & 19 year olds showed up just as we were about to go to bed & they had brought their own alcohol. The neighbors ending up calling in a noise complaint & the cops came. The cops asked all of us for our IDs & asked us if we had been drinking. Some of the kids that had come over (with their own alcohol) admitted they had been drinking. Everyone there who was under the age of 21 ended up getting a minor in consumption ticket, including myself (I'm 19). I did not take a breathalyzer nor was I seen within atleast 100 feet of the alcohol, nor did I admit to consumption
Although I am a Florida lawyer, if you are charged with a criminal offense, you should protect your criminal record....
