Underage DUI in Oregon... Help me...
Just last thursday I was convicted of DUI, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, and hit and run. I am 17 years old and the other individual in the car is 18. We hit a telephone pole, and I ended up running. (I still do not remember getting in the car, crashing it, getting out, ect.) most of the situation is very suspisious and I believe my friend may have driven. I am being charged with these crimes and the officer said "there is a witness saying he saw me driving" yet my injuries don't match up with sitting in the driver's seat. Is there any way to fight this, is there any way I can get out of the other charges, is there any way I can hold onto my license, what can I get out of the DMV implied consent hearing, and what can I expect with the whole overall situation?
