Implied Consent Form Not Completed

Jasper County, Iowa.  A GRL client recently had his OWI charge dismissed and was able to save his license after it was determined that the arresting officer failed to complete a written implied consent form at the time he request the client to submit to a breath test.  The law requires that the officer make a “written request” for a breath sample and the failure to do so, renders the results of the test inadmissible.  As a result of losing this crucial piece of evidence, the State dismissed the OWI charge and the client was able to avoid the loss of his driving privileges.
