Iowa Criminal Laws

Welcome to FindLaw's section on Iowa criminal laws, with concise explanations of select criminal laws, charges, and sentences. State criminal charges are very similar from one state to the next, although classifications and sentences often vary. As in other states, Iowa's criminal statutes address violent crimes such as assault and battery, sexual assault, and different degrees of homicide (from capital murder to accidental killings). Iowa laws also prohibit property-related and white collar crimes including identity theft, burglary, and fraud.
