After the nine weeks and everything mentioned below are done, will I be able to move to another county in Oregon for work?
This is my first DUI EVER, never even had a ticket, and I am 56. Counselor told me that I will be going to class for only the 9 weeks under the diversion program, even though I will still need to put insurance back on my car, get D.L. reinstated, and breathing devise in car for a year, and not to get in any trouble as the diversion does last a year from your court date. Also was told that I have not been convicted. Also one of the lawyers was correct. the [olice did not pull me over for anything else, nor did they ask or say reckless driving. Simply asked me to step out of the car, and then asked have you been drinking. I was not swirving, it was late at night and I went to jack in the box, had the food with me. A neighbor had turned me in after she had seen me go to the store earlier.
You can move to any county in Oregon at any time during diversion. You simply need to keep court notified of your...
How long does the diversion program last? I know there are 9 class's to go to at first. Nothing was mentioned about other class.
Ist DUI, do not drink all the time and not a binge drinker. Agreed for the Diversion program. I know that I will automatically be on it for a year. Was told after being assest by the councelor, that I would most likely finish early? Great, whats that suppose to mean as, I am being told by other people in the group sessions that,"Oh no, you have to still go to other groups." Counselor only wants to see me for 1/2 hr. instead of an hr. every other week, which was established on our first meeting. I have no job, no income, and they have broke me with all the fines. Can not drive until I put the breath machine on vehicle. I have 2 interviews to go to that pay well, in which I can get a ride, and I need to work now!! Was told you can not even show up a few minutes late to 5pm group meeting.
Many of my clients contact me because they are frustrated with their treatment providers, and they want to know if...
Will this DUII hurt my chances of getting a job as teacher assistant or Human Services specialist at the state of Oregon?
No prior tickets ever, age 56, First time DUII in state of Oregon, currently on Diversion program. This was an isolated incident, and I knew better than to drive. Was asked to step out of vehicle and if I had been drinking. Was not stopped for any other reason. I have paid all court fines. Had my evaluation, and assessment. Both people who performed these are wondering why I was not stopped for something first, then asked if I had been drinking. I did wrong, do not mind the diversion as I do not normally drink. But the locking device and it's costs along with the lenght of time are making it difficult to do daily functions, groceries, looking for job, doctor appt., and etc. I even canceled my car insurance due to lack of funds, they had not received any information on the DUII.
You can imagine that any criminal charge or conviction is not going to help your cause toward any employment. Make...

What is the statute of limitations in Oregon for a DUI misdemeanor? ( If it is not prosecuted to completion)
What little info online I could find--it mentioned 2 yrs if the misdemeanor is not a sex crime or violence is not involved. Is 2 yrs correct? And is the case then dismissed, and deleted from the record?
2 years. But the case is not dismissed. A case first has to "filed" in order for it to be "dismissed". You case was not...
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...
I received a DUII in Oregon (Washington County), but was NOT driving at the time. Can they cite DUII based on conversation?
My girlfriend and I were pulled over in front of a driveway that leads to a house. A car rolled up behind us. I thought it was just a car who wasn't going around me. I turned my car on to auxiliary to roll down my window and stuck my hand out to wave them by. I then saw the lights of the cop car and rolled down the passenger window (Note: Only the back portion of the light bar was on, not the front). The officer ask what we were doing, where we were coming from, and then asked if we had been drinking because he smelled alcohol. He asked for my insurance and my drivers license. After coming back, he asked me to step out of the car, spoke with me on my drinking (said 4 whisky sodas over a few hours) He asked me to perform sobriety tests. I completed and he put me under arrest for DUII.
Yes you can be cited even though the officer didn't witness any driving as long as there is evidence that you were...
