Request for Lawyer Ignored – Test Refusal Excluded

Grinnell, Poweshiek County, Iowa. GRL Law's client made a specific request for a lawyer after Grinnell Police Officers notified her they were charging her with operating while intoxicated. The arresting officer did not provide GRL Law's client with an opportunity to contact a lawyer at that point in time and consequently the prosecution agreed that the breath test refusal must be excluded from trial. Driving privileges spared and OWI conviction avoided.
