Types of OWI Cases in Iowa

OWI charges can vary based on the circumstances of the case. These can include: 

  • OWI with injury: This charge escalates the standard OWI charge if driving while intoxicated results in bodily injury to another person. It carries more severe penalties due to the harm caused.
  • OWI with death: An OWI charge becomes significantly more severe if the intoxicated operation leads to someone's death. It is considered a felony offense and comes with substantial legal consequences.
  • Repeat OWI charges: Individuals with previous OWI convictions face harsher penalties for subsequent offenses. The law in Iowa treats repeat offenders with increased severity, including longer jail time, more significant fines, and extended license suspensions.
  • OWI for underage drivers: Iowa drivers under the age of 21 are subject to a "zero tolerance" policy. Any detectable amount of alcohol in their system can result in an OWI charge, reflecting the stricter standards for underage drivers.
  • OWI for commercial license holders: Commercial drivers are held to higher standards due to the nature of their job and the vehicles they operate. A BAC of 0.04% or higher can lead to an OWI charge for those holding a commercial driver's license, impacting their employment and driving privileges.

At Goodman Law Firm, I understand the complexities and distinctions of each type of charge and can tailor my legal representation to the specifics of your case.
