OWI Second Offense Amended to Reckless Driving

Hardin County, Iowa. Client’s OWI Second offense charge was reduced to reckless driving and the DOT was prevented from suspending his license following a ruling by the Judge that his breath test refusal could not be introduced as evidence against him at the trial. GRL was able to successfully challenge the admissibility of the client’s breath test refusal after discovering the officer failed to honor the client’s request for a phone call made following his arrest. As a result of successfully challenging the admissibility of the breath test refusal, the Department of Transporation was prevented from suspending his license.
