I got pulled over and was found with a basically full open beer in my car.I'm 23 so I admitted to having a sip and it was a stupid Idea. I received a ticket and when I looked at my ticket the officer screwed up my last name by leaving one letter out. He also screwed up my driver license number by one digit as well. I also never signed the ticket. So I was wondering should I fight it do I have a chance of it being thrown out. Should I pay the fine and go on my way or do I have a chance of it being thrown out.
I would not recommend trying to fight the ticket on the grounds that there were minor typos on your citation. The...
Got 1st time DUI in CA, DL based in IA & currently living in OR. Driver record still clear @ IA DMV. Want to apply for OR DL.
Arrested May 2014 for 1st time DUI. CA DMV & Court both convicted me Sept 2014. Court ordered 100 hr comm service w/ any nonprofit in OR (almost done) plus fines & 5 yr probation (obey all laws, drive with valid DL etc). CA DMV suspension ends Jan 11, 2015. CA court suspension running concurrently til April but court conviction has not yet shown up on CA DMV records yet (same thing @ IA DMV--no record of conviction there too). My CA lawyers told me "not to wake Iowa DMV up." OR law says if OR DMV doesn't get notice of suspension 180 days frm court conviction (http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/809.400), they cannot suspend OR DL. Date of 180 days aftr conviction will be on March 29, 2015. Should I apply to OR DMV in Jan or wait until April to apply? Do I need to contact IA DMV?
I advise you to consult with an experienced DUI attorney in CA and also with an experienced DUI attorney from OR. Don'...

I was arrested for a DUII earlier this year and plead for diversion, I was deemed eligible for diversion and am about half way done with the mandatory classes; I attempted to purchase a firearm earlier today and was told that the oregon state police delayed my background check. The store asked if I had any previous record and I said I was arrested for a DUI, the clerk said that according to ORS 137.540 I might be under probation under my diversion agreement and in violation of my probation by owning firearms. I checked the paperwork I recieved from the Jackson County courts and did not see anything in regards to ORS 137.540, and the only mention of firearms was in regards to DV cases; am I violating the conditions of diversion by purchasing or owning a firearm?
Doesn't sound like it. First of all, you have not purchased a firearm yet. Your application is probably just delayed...

I received a "Show Cause" subpoena last week trying to revoke my DUII diversion for a false pos. IID blow. Perplexed.
My DUII occurred in Harney County in Oct. of 2013., and my BAC was a 0.07. I requested diversion and was granted it. My diversion was over in Nov. 2014 and I have paid for and complied with all the requirements. Now they are disputing a false positive blow on my IID from Oct. 2014. The report they sent attached to the subpoena from Life Link shows I blew an initial 0.04 and a fail, the second time a little over a minute later was a 0.01 and I was able to start my car. I obviously had something to eat that caused this to happen . In addition to having the IID in my car, I was required to have a camera, so they can see both times it was me that provided the breath tests. I sent the DA info disputing this and they haven't responded. Frustrated. They are 2.5 hrs away.
Stop contacting the DA immediately. They are not on your side, they do not want to help you. I strongly suggest you...
