There are two types of “habitual offender” statutes in Iowa. If your charge involves driving on a barred license, don’t panic. A habitual offender lawyer is a good idea, but you’re facing an aggravated misdemeanor, not a felony.
For anyone charged with a Habitual Offender felony offense, you are facing something very serious. These rules are sometimes called “three strikes rules” or “three strikes laws” and can put you in prison for years without the possibility of parole.
