What does “deferred judgment” mean?

A deferred judgment is a way for someone to keep their record clean. When someone is either found guilty or pleads guilty to a crime, a judge can defer or delay judgment. The judge will then place that person on probation. As long as that person successfully completes the probation, the crime will be removed from his or her record. A person can only use two deferred judgments in their lifetime.

What are the different levels of crime in the State of Iowa?
Crimes in Iowa are separated into two categories: misdemeanors and felonies.


*Simple Misdemeanors: You can be sentenced up to 30 days in jail; Fine between $65 and $650

*Serious Misdemeanors: You can be sentenced up to 1 year in jail; Fine between $315 and $1,875.

*Aggravated Misdemeanors: You can be sentenced up to 2 years in prison; Fine between $625 and $6,250.


Class D Felonies: You can be sentenced up to 5 years in prison; Fine between $750 and $7,500.

Class C Felonies: You can be sentenced up to 10 years in prison; Fine between $1,000 and $10,000.

Class B Felonies: You can be sentenced up to 25 years in prison; there is no fine. Class A Felonies: You will be sentenced to life in prison; there is no fine.

If a police officer makes a mistake on my case, can my case or charges be dismissed?

The short answer is: possibly. Though this is relatively rare, there are occasions when an officer will make a mistake that violates someone’s right. In those instances, charges are ultimately dismissed. It takes an experienced attorney to identify these situations and exploit them.

How long will my case take?

A simple misdemeanor will generally be done in about 2 months. For more serious crimes, the timeframe jumps to about 4 to 6 months. Some cases can last much longer than this, though. More often than not, the more serious the case, the longer it will take to navigate the legal system.  The good news is that, in any situation, it’s always a good idea to prepare for trial.

I wasn’t read my Miranda rights when I was arrested, shouldn’t my charges be invalid?

No. The police are only required to read you your Miranda rights under certain circumstances. The first is if you are in custody (and “in custody” is defined in a lot of different ways. You will need an attorney to help you decide if you were in custody). The second is when a state actor, such as a police officer, is questioning you.

If you are not in custody and an officer starts asking you questions, the officer does not need to give you the Miranda warning. If you are in custody and the officer is not questioning you, the officer does not need to give you the Miranda warning.

If you are in custody and an officer wants to ask you questions, he or she must give you your Miranda warning first. If the officer does not give you your Miranda warning, then any statements that you make in response to the officer’s questions cannot be used against you. Your charges will not be dismissed, however.

I’m being suspected for a case, should I talk to the police if they want to talk to me?

No. You have a Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and you should exercise that right. If the police want to talk to you about a crime, chances are they have already concluded that you are guilty of that crime. You will NOT be able to talk yourself out of being charged so talking to the cops can ONLY serve to hurt your chances with a future case.
