4 Questions Answered

Q. I really need help earase my past. I made mistakes 10 yrs ago for theft. can someone help
A: Under Iowa law, the only way to expunge an old theft conviction is if you had received a deferred judgment at the time of the original sentence. Otherwise there is nothing that can be done.
Q. Can i be charged with possession of controlled substance that was found during search warrant when it was not listed on
A: Yes. If police arrive with a valid warrant, and find evidence of an unexpected crime, that evidence can be used against you.
Q. If one accepts a plea at a pretrial conference when does the sentence begin?
A: Once the judge signs the judgment order. For misdemeanors, this often occurs on paper as long as you waived a sentencing hearing. For felonies a separate sentencing hearing is often required to be held. If you do not receive anything from your attorney or the court within a few days, make sure to contact the clerk of court.
Q. On a mandatory three year sentance on drug charge in iowa do offenders get anytime taken off the mandatory three years.
A: Yes. Good time in prison is actually counted against the minimum sentence. That is to say, a person sentenced with a minimum sentence of 3 years can get out before 3 years have expired.
