2nd Offense OWI Knocked Down to Reckless Driving

posted by on Monday, February 19, 2018

Johnston, Polk County, Iowa.  What started out as an Operating While Intoxicated, Second Offense, knocked down to Reckless Driving, a Simple Misdemeanor, prior to hearing on defendant's motion to suppress evidence.  GRL Law was prepared to argue that law enforcement's stop of client's vehicle was not supported by probable cause and that his right to privacy during phone call with attorney was violated.  Prosecution agreed to amend the charge down to Reckless Driving the afternoon prior to the scheduled hearing.  OWI charge avoided.
