Types of Misdemeanor Charges in Iowa

Branstad & Olson successfully addressed tough cases for clients facing a wide range of misdemeanors. We understand your case is important whether you are facing a fine or months in jail.

A vast range of misdemeanor offenses exist, including, but not limited to:

  • Assault
  • Child endangerment
  • Disorderly conduct

  • Drug possession
  • OWI / DUI
  • Solicitation and prostitution

Possible Consequences of a Misdemeanor Conviction

Even though misdemeanors are penalized with less incarceration time than felonies, our clients want to avoid any time in jail. When you are convicted of a misdemeanor, you may also be assessed fines or sentenced to probation with requirements to meet to avoid jail time.

Misdemeanors may also include:

  • Mandatory classes or programs
  • Loss of driving privileges
  • Counseling or treatment programs (for drug and/or alcohol offenses, and offenses involving assaults)
