My girlfriend recently met someone who provided her alcohol (she is 20) and then they proceeded to have sex. She was also drunk
Is there any form of legal action I can take against him for providing alcohol to a minor and essentially "rape"?
I guess the first question is did she consent to have sex or not? I think that's a question best left for her to decide.
What can I do when I've been told installing an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) in my hybrid vehicle cannot be performed safely?
I am in the middle of a DUII diversion case in WA county and just had my license reinstated. I made an appointment at a highly reputable, local IID shop and took in my electric/gasoline hybrid vehicle with push-button-start. An hour later, after taking the whole interior of the car apart, the shop manager informed me that the installation would require permanent damage/modifications to the vehicle. He also said that the installation may pose a safety issue, so he didn't feel comfortable completing it and refunded my money. A quick Google search has 0 results matching "hybrid IID installation". I'm reluctantly seeking a second opinion from another IID shop, due to concerns about honesty/transparency. Do I have to sacrifice the safety and integrity of my only car for this installation?
If you want a restricted license, you'll have to get an IID. This is the requirement for people who drive drunk, are...
Is this just a clerical error or what can I do about it?
I was charged with a DUII in Oregon. I went to my arraignment this past Monday and there was a statement on that piece of paper they give you that stated the State is objecting to Diversion because of a 2007 DUII conviction. First of all, that isn't me. This is my first DUII not my second. I spoke to the public defenders meadator and he said I needed to get an attorney to clear this all up, but why would they put someone elses wrap sheet in my file? Is this just a common mistake?
These types of mistakes are not "common," but they happen too often. As a former prosecutor, I can state that the...
What are the possible penalties for violating probation on a first time DUI, in WA State?
My son-in-law had a DUI in WA State in Feb 2010. Four months later, he was charged with DV and possession of pot (very small amount). He was at home (and was intoxicated) when this occurred, and the incident was minor. He did not strike my daughter, but held her wrists during a heated argument. That was enough. The DV was ultimately reduced to disorderly conduct, and final disposition was no jail time, no probation and a fine. Assuming fairly standard probation terms from his Feb DUI, what can he expect when he faces the court to answer for the DUI probation violation? Note: He has not had a drink in almost 6 months now, and has several character statements, as well as the support of his wife (my daughter). He is represented. Thanks.
This is a question about Washington, but you put it in the Oregon section. I'd try again in the Washington section.
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...
Diversion vs. Other options?
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...
