Open Container Violation
I got pulled over and was found with a basically full open beer in my car.I'm 23 so I admitted to having a sip and it was a stupid Idea. I received a ticket and when I looked at my ticket the officer screwed up my last name by leaving one letter out. He also screwed up my driver license number by one digit as well. I also never signed the ticket. So I was wondering should I fight it do I have a chance of it being thrown out. Should I pay the fine and go on my way or do I have a chance of it being thrown out.
I would not recommend trying to fight the ticket on the grounds that there were minor typos on your citation. The...
Could I get Hawaii DUI dismissed through Oregon's diversion prog., or is there any other way to avoid the 3 yr SR22 requirement?
I was convicted of DUI in Hawaii, and have since been released from suspension there, however I am back in Oregon and they are requiring an SR22 to reinstate my Oregon license. I see that OR has a diversion program, and by reading the forms, it looks like I am not disqualified to file a motion to dismiss the charge. I just don't know how to go about trying, and if it will work or not. One clerk told me I won't even know that until I spend the hundreds of dollars and a year for the diversion program here. (Even though I did some of the assessments to reduce the fines in Hawaii, I did not do the year with alcohol-free tests). If Hawaii had a similar program, I was not informed, and when I arrived back in Oregon a year later expecting to get my license reinstated I discovered the SR22 and diversion program.
This is really a DUI question, so I am answering it to move it there so a DUI attorney can assist.

Is it legal to share an Ignition Interlock Device with two drivers driving the same car in the event that both have DUI's?
My wife and I share the same car, we both got a DUI at the same time as the officers were running a sting in the state of OR. Now, we face the fact that the Ignition Interlock device company will not add both of our Driving lics to the same agreement. Is this legal?
I don't see why that wouldn't be an issue so long as you don't drive a vehicle without an IID>

Does the Oregon's Diversion program allows Parole officers or case managers to show announced to my house for inspections?
I like to drink wine with my meals, but I am worried that my legal rights will affect my wife's Diversion program, if for instance: the Parole officer decides to come into our house for a search and finds that we have a wine collection and other spirits in the house / or that we, still buy wine / spirits since we belong to wine clubs.
DUII Diversion does not require that one's spouse abstain from drinking. Rather, the statute requires: "an agreement by...
