Polk County, Iowa.  Client who was charged with operating while intoxicated first offense had her charges reduced to reckless driving.  The amendment came on heels of a successful pretrial motion to suppress in which the results of the client's breath test were deemed inadmissible because the officer violated her right to speak with an attorney and improperly informed her about the applicable period of suspension for her driver's license.  Following the motion to suppress, a petition was filed with the Department of Transportation which prohibited a license suspension.
