What is Operating While Intoxicated--Second Offense in a Cedar Rapids drunk driving prosecution? 

by David A. Cmelik Law PLC


​​Second offense drunk driving in Iowa is an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by at least 7 days in jail, no more than two years in prison, and fines ranging from $1,875 to $6,250. Upon conviction, a driver’s license revocation will be revoked for one year if not otherwise administratively revoked because of a breath, blood, or urine test failure and two years for a test refusal.


An Iowa-licensed attorney should be retained to review any and all written and electronic discovery/evidence to determine strengths and defects of the prosecution.
