While often a non-violent crime, being convicted of drug charges in Iowa can still carry major repercussions, including a criminal record even where none existed before. A conviction regarding charges of felony or misdemeanor possession can follow an individual for decades. Unfortunately for one 22-year-old, this is just the situation he is now facing.
An Iowa man is facing multiple counts of felony identity theft. The Osceola business owner has been charged with five counts of felony, each a class D because of the amounts involved. Per the Iowa Department of Transportation's Bureau of Investigation and Identity Protection, if he is convicted, the defendant would be subject to provisions prohibiting him from owning or even working for a licensed motor vehicle dealer in the state of Iowa in the future.
