People in Iowa who have been hit with a serious traffic ticket, or several infractions over a short span of time, or are accused of a serious crime related to driving may be facing the possibility of losing their driver's license. But it may not be inevitable, so they should take the time to explore their options. To do this, they should think about calling an experienced Iowa defense attorney who can explain some of the options available to them, regardless of whether they may have made mistakes..
Drivers in Iowa know, or should know, that if they are arrested for drunk driving they will face fines, license suspension and a possible jail sentence. They should also know that the penalties get worse for repeat offenses.
Being accused of a crime is a difficult event to absorb. Defendants will often seek to make a strong defense to lessen or drop some or all of the charges against them. In some matters, these allegations turn into conviction, leaving the defendant still trying to prove their innocence, even while in prison.
Eastern Iowa is the home of several of the finest universities in the nation, as well as tens of thousands of students who attend these prestigious institutions. When the young men and women who attend these universities get into trouble with the law, they may not realize that their criminal matters may also affect their standing at school, and can lead to sanctions, suspension or even outright expulsion. A criminal conviction can also jeopardize a student's ability to obtain or maintain scholarships or financial aid. For this reason, college students facing criminal charges have the option of calling the Law Offices of J. Dean Keegan and Thomas D.S. Farnsworth.
