In light of the COVID-19 public health emergency, which has caused an indefinite suspension of all 48-hour OWI programs, and pursuant to an agreement between the Johnson County Attorney, the Department of Correctional Services, and the Johnson County District Associate Court, for OWI cases in which a deferred judgment order was granted and in which the Defendant has not yet completed the OWI weekend program, the Johnson County judges are entering the following orders in multiple cases:
“Defendants who have not yet completed a 48-hour OWI Weekend program may satisfy the requirement by completing a 12-hour OWI course that is approved by the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT). This course may be completed online or in person. For updated information and a list of approved providers, go to educateiowa.gov. Defendants may contact the Self-Supervised Probation program directly by calling 319-730-1266.”
