I was arrested for a duii in oregon, but i dont believe the sheriff had a right to stop me. what can i do?
i was pulled over for driving close to the white line, i passed the field sobriety tests too (except for a little hopping when they made me stand on one foot). i felt sober the whole time and cooperated, but after i was arrested they had me take a breathalyzer and blew a .13. Then after that they had me sign papers that said i would like to be tried by a judge without a jury. Should i have been pulled over in the first place? and is it legal for the sheriff to have me sign any legal papers while presumed under the influence?
Hire a DUI lawyer. You CANNOT handle this yourself.
he seen me get into a car and drive away pulled me over after 100 feet i did nothing wrong except i was suspended i found out.
In theory, the police need probable cause that a crime has been committed to pull over a car. In practice, though,...
I was recently charged with a DUII in Oregon. It is my first charge of this kind. Am I eligible for diversion?
DUII Diversion Form 3 PETITIONER SWORN STATEMENT OF ELIGIBILITY states that, "During the fifteen (15) years before the date of the presently alleged DUII offense...I have not participated in a DUII diversion program or any similar alcohol or drug rehabilitation program in Oregon or any other place;..." What constitutes similar. About 14 years ago I was arrested on a possession charge in NV (marijuana). I was ordered to take a monthly urine test for a year. No classes, videos, impact panel, etc. Does this constitute a similar program?
From the few facts that you have provided it seems that you would probably qualify. Because you did not go through a...
I was at home with a friend and just cracked a beer i got a call from an ex girlfriend with news that pissed me off. i had about 3 sips a half a beer at most, left my house angry and peeled out of the parking lot. the managers complained and called the cops. i came back not even five minutes later because i knew i shouldnt have been driving because i consumed alcohol. i came back had 3 double shots and another beer. cop came about an hour or so later talked to me said he didnt feel comfortable giving me a dui then some trooper shows up and says he should. so i was given a ticket for dui and arrested. I have a witness saying that i didnt have more than half a beer before i left. the problem is he is in the service and i dont think he is going to be in town when i go to court. Any advice?
Hello there, You need to consult with an attorney in your area as soon as possible. You also should know that you...
my one year suspension is up today can they require the ignition interlock if my conviction was before the law was passed?
HB 3075's amendments don't seem to apply to you -- instead, you've got the regular old ORS 813.602 that says you must...
I was pulled over for an unsignaled lane change. I failed a sobriety test (counted down from 100 to 76 instead of 77). The officer thought I was under another influence, so I submitted a urine sample. I was cited and released. I have a court date in 2 months. What could happen, and how might I prepare for the hearing?
1) Completely independent from court, you must request a DMV hearing ASAP. It may already be too late, depending on...
All, Please help me here very urgent, I got 8 months old DUI arrest. I believe officer didn't file my case in court. They gave me court date after 4 days on arrest, when i went to court, they don't have my papers. I oredered court document and police report for my records a week back, court says "no record found" and police report just stats my "arrest record" I understood that one cannot file expungement after DUI conviction and DUI diversion. But one can file if case is dismissed for any reason. Am i eligible for expungement after 8 months arrest, or do i need to wait for 2 years (as Oregon has 2 years time-period), Please help here, I need to go to out of United State for VISA stamping in coming months. Will it be a problem if i go for stamping in this case ?
An unfiled DUI charge with only an arrest should not prevent you from a visa stamping abroad, however, if requested...
