It would depend on what the paperwork and How It Was Written when you ended up pleading to the one offense. It may have been one offense for criminal implications but for driving privilege purposes it could be considered a second. You would need to take a look at how the Court wrote up your offense. I would place a call to your attorney who should know that answer. If he does not then you would need to contact the court and get a look at your charging sheet

I don't have a lawyer. As a lawyer not from Iowa, can you access records from the clerk of court in Scott County Iowa?
In your original comment you stated that you had an attorney who was able to broker that deal for you. I was thinking about you contacting that attorney. If that is not an issue I am in court now and I can try to see if I can access those records online.

The lawyer was a public defender.
I just did a quick look on Google and I am not saying computer access to criminal records. I would suggest contacting the county clerk of court who is the head of criminal records and see if these records are available online or if the clerk can pull your case and forward you or read to you the charging sheet

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
