Diversion probation violation
About 4 years ago I got a DUI I was ordered into diversion and put on probation. I didn't complete either one because I lived in another state and didn't feel the penalty was realistic, they said I could not leave Oregon I could not drive and diversion cost an arm and a leg and without a job in Oregon, without transportation, and without a home in Oregon, I felt like I was set up to fail. So I went home and continued on with my life in Washington state. I am planning on turning myself in this coming Tuesday in Oregon to finally take care of this problem. I have no ideal what to expect. Do you think I'll get considerable jail time? I paid my initial fees to diversion but that was all I did. Will they retry me and will I get anything extra for violation of probation?
You need to get an attorney before you turn yourself in. Yes, you are looking at substantial jail time. Yes, you're...

How am I getting a ticket without getting caught in the driver's seat?
I got a Duii for blowing zero on a breath test because I had weed and methadone supposedly in my system. I was shopping at Lowes coming out of the store I seen an officer near my car. A citizen called me in saying they seem me drinking, they did not see me drinking they seen me throw a beer can in the back of my truck. The citizens are lying. I was not even driving when the officer showed up.

I currently have a valid license. I have complete the diversion, but based on new laws am I required to have an interlock device if I move to Washington?
If your diversion is completely finished and your probation is over then you should be allowed to remove the device....
Is there a way to get a lifetime driver's license revocation reduced ?
I had the third DUI in my life last year, first in Oregon. The other two occured in CA and AZ over the last sixteen years. The AZ DUI was for control and custody of a vehicle least degree of impairment, as I was not driving but parked legally on a dead end street to sleep as I was exhausted and felt as though I was too tired to drive. I have complied and completed all terms of my sentence but for paying the balance of my fine. I am disabled and live in a tiny coastal town without good public transportation, and cannot access medical and therapy facilities I need to treat my disability. I have considered writing to my convicting judge in the Lane Co. Circuit court to ask for a reduced sentence, a suspension or to be allowed a hardship license. Is this a possibility ?
Generally speaking, this would be an issue with the Motor Vehicle Department not the Courts. Unless the court ordered...
