Can I postpone Diversion program for my first DUI if it is for a job abroad?
I received my first DUI a few days ago, in Oregon (I currently live in DC). I am scheduled to move abroad for a very important job that will be 6-months long. This is a huge opportunity and failing to move abroad for this job will substantially ruin my career. I am willing to plead guilty and enter the diversion program - but I need to leave the country in 2-weeks or will loose this opportunity and crush my career. Is it possible the judge could lift probation for traveling and I could complete these classes starting in 6-months. I will not be operating a vehicle in Africa - I will not even have electricity. Many thanks for your responses.
Most counties will not give you 6 months to FINISH treatment, let alone START it. You need to have an office conference...

If my conviction says my license is suspended 3 years, how can the DMV now say it is a 5 year?
In 2010 I was convicted of DUI, Assault 3, and Failure to perform duties as a driver. I did time and received a 3 year DMV suspension. I got out Aug 19, 2012. I waited one full year and I applied for a hardship license. I followed all the steps and was approved. In 2013, I am POSITIVE it was only for two years. In a couple days it will be two years on hardship with NO infractions. I called them today and they said I have another year of hardship and 3 additional years with an SR22. DMV quoted § 809.411¹ (C). Are they right? I am POSITIVE when I went through the process it was only for two years.
If you received a three suspension I assume the enhanced suspension was due to you having a previous conviction in the...
I got stopped, for suspicion of DUI, there were no signs or evidence of this accusation, my car was searched. Is this legal?
someone reported that I was drinking and driving and i was pulled over. The officer said he stopped me because of the call. i had not drank and there were no signs or evidence of me drinking. the officer was going to do a sobriety test but no sobriety test was done. They harassed my passenger about his bag and wanted to search it, he told them no! They took it from him and searched it. they found an open beer. they were not going to tow my car, they had no reason to search but I saw an officer was searching my car, i told him he couldn't and he stated it was an inventory check, they were towing it after they said no they weren't. They ended up finding drugs under the driver seat and i was arrested of P/C.
Just based on your description, you may have valid legal issues with an unlawful traffic stop and search and seizure....

I blew a 0.07 on a breathalyzer. Do you suggest a lawyer for the hearing? What are my chances of dismissal if I don't get one?
Legal breathalyzer limit is 0.08 in OR. I just got off a 16-hour shift and had 2 beers. I was dog-tired, not intoxicated, when I was given the sobriety tests. I have astigmatism so my eyes will jerk with a light directed at them. I also have ADHD so I have difficulty following multiple instructions so I failed the Walk-&-Turn test which is hard to pass even with no alcohol. If I arm myself with documentation of my 16-hour shift, astigmatism, and ADHD, what are my chances of getting my case dismissed at the hearing if I represented myself? I really can’t afford a lawyer and would like to slay this dragon at the onset. Do you have any other suggestions? Would you advise my writing a letter to the judge or DA? Thank you!
