I have a duii and two counts of reckless endangerment what happens if I plead guilty and don't accept diversion?
None
SHORT ANSWER: It would be just like Diversion, but worse. LONG ANSWER: In addition to the conditions of DUII...
I was recently charged with a DUII in Oregon. It is my first charge of this kind. Am I eligible for diversion?
DUII Diversion Form 3 PETITIONER SWORN STATEMENT OF ELIGIBILITY states that, "During the fifteen (15) years before the date of the presently alleged DUII offense...I have not participated in a DUII diversion program or any similar alcohol or drug rehabilitation program in Oregon or any other place;..." What constitutes similar. About 14 years ago I was arrested on a possession charge in NV (marijuana). I was ordered to take a monthly urine test for a year. No classes, videos, impact panel, etc. Does this constitute a similar program?
From the few facts that you have provided it seems that you would probably qualify. Because you did not go through a...
I was stopped with a BAC of .03. First time offense. Any advice? Thank you.
I was pulled over for an unsignaled lane change. I failed a sobriety test (counted down from 100 to 76 instead of 77). The officer thought I was under another influence, so I submitted a urine sample. I was cited and released. I have a court date in 2 months. What could happen, and how might I prepare for the hearing?
1) Completely independent from court, you must request a DMV hearing ASAP. It may already be too late, depending on...
I got a duii in Oregon, but i'm licensed in Hawaii. Can I drive here in Oregon?
I am a full-time resident but did not change my license over. The duii may not even be filed, they are still reviewing to see if they will press charges. I moved from Hawaii with a valid license. Can Oregon suspend my driving privleges here even though I have a license in another state. I didn't blow and just had a administrative hearing of appeal. So my 30 day period is up they gave me from the time the duii happened on 0ct 6. It is Nov. 6 and I don't know if I can drive until I get a decision. They told me that I cannot file for a hardship permit because my license is from Hawaii and they attach it to my license. So I am thinking that if they can't attach a hardship permit to my Hawaii license then they must not be able to suspend my priveleges here.
If Oregon suspends your driving privileges, either as a result of the DMV Administrative Hearing or through a...
Can a sis be used against you by the dmv in oregon as a conviction ?
Dmw is interpreting my sis agreement as a conviction and suspending my license
"Suspend Imposition of Sentence" simply means: putting someone on probation who just got convicted of a crime. If...
Are there any travel restrictions to Caribbean due to DUI
I had a DUI Convection in June 2014 which was dropped after completing DUI Diversion Program (June 2015) in Oregon. I am planning on taking a Caribbean cruise next to Grand Turks, La Romana (Dominican Republic), Curacao, Aruba (Netherlands Antilles). The cruise will be leaving out of Florida. Could I be denied entry at the port of calls? I have a Valid US Passport.
This post is in the criminal defense forum. It is not about that, rather it is about travelling to the Carribbean,...
Is it a criminal act if my upstairs neighbor in our condos, damages my property while intoxicated.
My upstairs neighbor fell off the wagon got drunk, broke her toilet and and was so drunk that she failed to turn off the water. When it started raining in my condo I went upstairs to find her reeking of alcohol and totally incoherent so I turned off the water. Because of a subrogation clause my insurance had to pay for it, but now she is harassing me within an inch of my sanity and I'm wondering if I can file criminal charges against her?
You could file a police report over the harassment and see if the police do anything. But it would not be criminal...
