What Can You Do If Confronted By Law Enforcement?

You can learn more by talking to one of our attorneys.

Where Are People Held After An Arrest In Iowa?

If someone is arrested in Iowa, they should be taken into custody at the local police department. If arrested in West Des Moines, for example, the defendant should expect to be taken to West Des Moines City Jail. Following the arrest, the defendant may be released without charges or after posting bail or held in jail. Our attorneys at Spellman Law, P.C., can help families locate their loved ones if they are arrested.
