Ask to Talk to Your Wife!

Humbolt County Iowa.  Our client's request to speak to his wife who arrived at the scene of the stop and no subsequent advisory by the officer informing the client of his right to see his wife in person at the jail was sufficient to secure a ruling that the breath test result was inadmissible at trial.  The prosecutor subsequently agreed to amend the charges to reckless driving and public intoxication thus saving the client's CDL license and an OWI on his record.
