What is the difference between an OWI, DWI and DUI? An OWI is “Operating While Intoxicated”. A DWI is “Driving While Intoxicated”. A DUI is “Driving Under the Influence”. In essence these are all the same, but under Iowa law, it is called OWI.

Can you be charged with an OWI for anything other than alcohol?  Yes. An OWI includes alcohol, drugs or a combination of the two.

What are the penalties for an OWI? The penalties of an OWI in Iowa increase with each offense. A first offense is a serious misdemeanor, a second offense is an aggravated misdemeanor, and a third offense and thereafter is a felony. It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you receive proper counsel.
