Coralville business manager accused of embezzlement from clients

Accusations of theft in the workplace can have serious consequences. A man from Coralville, Iowa, who worked as the general manager of a business, is facing the possibility of 10 years in prison after being charged with stealing over $20,000 from clients. The man has been charged with a single count of first-degree theft, which is a Class C felony in Iowa.

How can an Iowa resident fight federal drug trafficking charges?

Federal and state drug trafficking charges carry very serious penalties if an individual is convicted. The severity of the punishment will depend on a number of factors, including the type and quantity of drugs seized. A conviction in federal court of drug trafficking can result in a lengthy prison sentence - up to and including life in prison. Iowa also has its own set of drug laws, and a conviction in state court can carry similar severe penalties.

Deferred judgment can provide a second chance for Iowa defendants

Facing criminal charges and the possible long-term consequences of a conviction can be deeply troubling, especially for people who have had little or no contact with the criminal justice system in the past. Fortunately, Iowa judges have some discretion in sentencing, and not every conviction means a prison sentence. In some circumstances a defendant will be eligible for some form of alternative sentencing, and thus avoid incarceration.
