Felony Bribery and OWI charge reduced to simple misdemeanors

Dallas County Iowa.  Client was charged with bribery and OWI when he offered to pay the officer to simply take him home instead of to jail.  Following a review of the video and depositions, it was clear the officer's decision to charge the client with bribery was a vindictive response to his request to place telephone calls thereby resulting in an agreement to reduce both the OWI and bribery charge.  A great result given that the client's firearms rights would have been lost if convicted of the felony and when you are an avid hunter that is a bad thing.
