An associate that my fiancé know stole something and got my fiancé involved. My fiancé had an warrant out for his arrest and charged with 3rd Degree Burglarly. He gets arrested and was able to get a bond reduction but he still in county jail. I’m not sure what happened at his arraignment but it’s continued to a pretrail conference. He been arrested before but not in the state of Iowa and it has been over 7years. I have tried contacting his defense attorney and gotten no answer. I would like to know if he is looking at jail time or can he possibly get probation at the pretrail conference. His defense attorney told him that the charge would be dropped to a misdemeanor but on the internet it’s still say a felony charge
The best person to ask is his attorney. We are only guessing without understanding all the facts.
The comments listed here are of a general nature and are not offered to create a formal attorney-client relationship -- that is, I am not, and I cannot give you legal advice here. I am Iowa licensed and, to become your attorney, I need to understand the particular facts and circumstances of your legal question and most likely meet you face to face.
