Daniel Rothman’s client was charged with OWI in Polk County. Per a plea agreement, the Defendant only plead to public intoxication and reckless driving. After the 2 year window we filed for a statutory expungement of the intoxication charge, the state resisted and the court denied the request. We filed a motion to reconsider to the court which was denied. We then filed a 2nd motion to reconsider showing why the grounds to deny the first motion to reconsider were erroneous. The state then noted the error and rescinded their earlier resistance and the Court agreed with the motion and finally permanently expunged the criminal conviction off of our client’s record. Had we not continued to fight (at no extra cost to the client) then the client would have been denied the expungement they were entitled to under Iowa law.
