Iowa man faces charges after allegedly breaking into apartment

Even when an act appears to be simple or innocent, individuals could face serious criminal charges. This is especially true when a person has past convictions of the same crime. This could elevate the potential penalties, causing it to even become a felony offense. Therefore, it is important to be fully aware of these situations and what defense options are available.

How DUI laws in Iowa impact those suspected of drunk driving

Being pulled over for suspected drunk driving is one of the most nerve-wrecking traffic stops. Motorists in Iowa and elsewhere might not fully understand what the penalties are for a DUI charge and how greatly a conviction could impact his or her life. This is especially true if it is not a driver's first conviction. As a means to deter drunk driving, the laws in Iowa have altered over the years; however, this does not mean that those accused of drunk driving fully understand the consequences that could follow.

What acts are considered to be domestic violence?

Sometimes family members and significant others get into fights. While many of these arguments are simple disputes that can be resolved through communication, others escalate to physical altercations. When situations evolve into domestic assault, this could result in individuals in Iowa and other states being charged with a crime. And, because this type of criminal charge involves a loved one, it has the tendency of having both potential criminal penalties and the consequence of ruined relationships.
