After you have your hearing in court, the judge will issue a protective order that can last up to 12 months if the judge finds that you need protection from domestic abuse.

After hearing the testimony, the judge will decide whether domestic abuse occurred and whether you need a protective order that can last for up to a year.

At the hearing in your case, the judge may set up visitation between the kids and the abuser. The Judge is supposed to set up visitation that would keep you and the children safe.

Under Iowa law, the Department of Human Services is the agency which investigates abuse of children and takes action to prevent child abuse.
Sometimes a protective order will allow for telephone contact about visitation or the children. It may allow both of you to be at children's activities at the same time. Make sure your lawyer or the Court, if you don't have a lawyer knows what your wishes are about this type of contact. The protective order may let the abuser come to the house to pick up personal items. A peace office would have to be present. If you prefer, you can ask to drop personal items off with a family member or friend.

This court held in State v. Myers, Iowa , N. Defendant first challenges the sufficiency of the evidence to sustain his conviction as an aider and abettor. Defendant was engaged in the seed business in Creston. His son Homer was a partner and general manager of the business. About five p. Gillispie drove. They went from Creston into the country and looked at eight or ten pastures, with the thought of purchasing grass seed.
Storms ordered supper for them both and they ate together at the same table. Defendant was first to enter the car and sat on the right side of the front seat. Gillispie got in the driver's seat on the left and drove away. The sheriff and his deputy followed the car, stopped it after it had traveled a few blocks, and arrested Gillispie for drunken driving.
Although defendant denied that Gillispie was intoxicated, there is ample evidence to support such a finding. He staggered, [ Iowa Page ]. The jury could also properly have found that defendant, notwithstanding his denial, must have known and did know of the drunken condition of Gillispie. But, defendant argues, mere knowledge, by one who is present, of the commission of a crime by another, or even negative acquiescence therein, is insufficient to constitute aiding and abetting — there must be some affirmative act of participation or advising or encouraging it.
Although a defendant's presence may under some circumstances constitute an aiding and abetting see State v. Farris, Iowa , , N. Dunn, Iowa , , 89 N. State v. Bosworth, Iowa , , N. Bartlett, Iowa , , N. Farr, 33 Iowa , ; 22 C. Even so, we think the evidence was sufficient to support the charge of aiding and abetting. Three peace officers testified that defendant said, in substance, following the driver's arrest, that Gillispie was driving his car for him, that he had Gillispie drive his car while he defendant was buying grass seed.
The jury could have found the two were engaged in a joint venture and that Storms, knowing Gillispie was intoxicated, encouraged him to drive. Instruction 10 states that "to aid and abet" means to assent to an act, or to lend to it countenance and approval, either by active participation in it or by in some manner advising or encouraging it. Defendant specially complains of the italicized words. Even assuming, as defendant contends, that mere assent to an act does not amount to aiding and abetting, the instruction is correct.
The final clause, "by active participation in it or by in some manner advising or [ Iowa Page ]. The quoted language does not, as defendant argues, refer merely to the clause immediately preceding it, "to lend to it countenance and approval. Davis, Iowa , , N. Wilbourn, Iowa , , , N.
Instruction 10 required the jury to find, in order to convict, that the car in question was owned by Storms. It is argued that it was immaterial who owned the car and the jury should have been so instructed. But if this be true, this portion of the instruction was not prejudicial to defendant in requiring proof by the State of an immaterial matter. We may add that the ownership of the car was not disputed. Defendant fully admitted he was the owner.
Jack had always complained to Thomas that the restaurant's manager was a lazy drunk. Jack told Thomas that there were times that he would wait for up to 45 minutes for the manager to unlock the back door, but that lately things were better because he started handing Jack the restaurant keys so that he could let himself in and out.
Once Jack was finished with the trash, he and the other employees would finally get to leave work, but as was policy, they all had to leave together out the front door. Angry with his boss for wasting his time and jealous that he and the bartender sat around drinking free drinks, Jack agreed to Thomas' request to "forget" to relock the back door the next night. The next night after taking out the trash, Jack purposely left the back door unlocked as was planned.
Thomas then slipped through the unlocked door and into the restaurant, put a gun to the surprised manager's head and forced him to unlock the safe. What Thomas did not know was that there was a silent alarm under the bar that the bartender was able to activate.
When Thomas heard police sirens approaching, he grabbed as much of the money from the safe as he could and ran out the back door. He managed to slip by the police and make it to his ex-girlfriend's apartment, whose name was Janet. After hearing about his close call with the police and his generous offer to compensate her by giving her a percentage of the money he got from robbing the restaurant, she agreed to let him hide from the police at her place for a while.
Because Jack was aware that Thomas intended to rob the restaurant by gaining access through the door that Jack purposely left unlocked, he was charged with aiding and abetting, even though he was not present when the robbery took place. Janet was charged with aiding and abetting because she had knowledge of the crime and helped Thomas avoid arrest by letting him hide at her apartment.
She also profited financially from the crime. It does not matter that her involvement came after and not before the crime was committed. Share Flipboard Email.
