OWI first amended to reckless driving and license saved

posted by Matthew Lindholm on Saturday, September 03, 2016

Blackhawk County, Iowa.  Client was charged with operating while intoxicated after refusing to submit to a breath test.  GRL challenged the admissibility of the breath test refusal and trial and successfully suppressed the refusal from being used at trial due to the fact that the client was not given a sufficient opportunity to place telephone call as required by Iowa Code Section 804.20.  As a result, the State amended the charge to reckless driving and the DOT was precluded from suspending the client's license.
