Do I still need to get an interlock device?
My suspension ends in March and I have not driven since I received my DUI. I do own a vehicle but i gave it to my daughter to drive until I am able to drive again. I received the DUI in Washington and live in Oregon. At the time of sentencing the judge questioned whether or not I needed to have it installed but was unable to determine that because I live in a different state.
Since you're an Oregon licensed driver, just call the DMV Help-Line with your question at 503-299-9999. I can tell you...
What happens if you get a violation on your interlock device while on diversion in Washington County, OR? Do they kick you out?
I entered diversion for a DUII in Washington County, Oregon in May 2016. I have had an interlock device installed since August. I recently received a violation on my device for a BAC of 0.330, followed by 0.325. There were 3 other violations of 0.24. This is only my 2nd device, I did not know that what was happening were violations. The 0.2 samples i have non idea why they happened. The 0.3 samples given was in fact due to drinking the night prior. The interlock company said they only have to report the 0.3 violations.
Will they convict me of a duii now, or give a second chance?
Okay, first, stop typing the details and facts online. You're reaching out to lawyers, but your words on the internet...
Got a DUI in Hillsboro in October, no priors. Blood test was taken at the time of citation, and I was never contacted back with my results. My first appointed court hearing was yesterday where they read my rights and I was told I qualify for the Diversion program. Which to me seems ridiculous. What would my other options be? If I plead guilty/paid the fine... I still don't know what my blood alcohol level was. Aren't they supposed to give me that information? Any advice helps, thank you!
It sounds like your case is going to fast. I wouldn't do anything without finding out all the facts and circumstances...
After DUII Diversion treatment, are you called back for UAs in Washington County?
I recently completed diversion in Washington Co. Getting a DUII was actually a blessing for me, and I am happy to say I am sober for 10 months and plan on maintaining sobriety after my diversion year is over.
What I am incredibly nervous about is getting called back by Evaluation Services for a UA before my diversion year is over. Not because I plan to use, but this whole experience has been one of the most stressful in my life. So much so that I do not even plan to drive until my diversion year is over. My fines are paid off, my requirements are all met, and I want to put this behind me. But I still break into tears when I see a police car, I get nervous to answer my door, etc.
I have PTSD and worrying about getting a call to go give a UA sends me into major panic attacks. I tend to freeze when I panic and if I were to be called back I would just want to be prepared.
I feel like if I knew it was going to happen I could calm down a bit about it. I just want to keep myself and my mental health as calm as possible, and not be scared to answer my phone/open the mail.
This is an overdrawn explanation for my question, I apologize. Thank you for taking the time.
Best bet is to get medicine for the PTSD so it won't interfere with your life
