Request to See Husband Denied – Operating While Intoxicated Avoided, Breath Test Refusal Excluded, Driving Privileges Spared

Waukee, Dallas County, Iowa.  The prosecution agree that the arresting officer improperly denied GRL Law client’s request to see her husband prior to making a decision to submit to or refuse a breath test after her arrest for operating while intoxicated.  With the violation of the law being clear and based upon the rest of the available evidence, the prosecution agreed to amend the charge down to a simple misdemeanor, reckless driving.  The exclusion of the breath test refusal at trial also allowed GRL Law to reinstate client’s full driving privileges.
