Open Container Violation
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...

DUI conviction in Illinois over 10 years ago.
How long can a DUI be held against me from another state? I have been denied getting my license back twice now from Illinois even after seeing evaluators and treatment specialists, and providing all documentation. The reasons it was denied seem to be ludicrous (IE "petitioner does not understand full ramifications of the conviction") what should me next steps be? Can an Oregon attorney help or would I need to get one licensed in Illinois?
In order to get an Oregon driver's license, you will need to clear your status in Illinois and be eligible for...

I'm a Oregon division until end of year about Interlock device
I received a 0.6 in Oregon in December of last year. I have a California license. I have completed my classes. All I have now is to pay court costs and cost of Interlock until end of year. But CA DMV is clear. No notice of arrest; diversion; or interlock system. If I removed interlock from my car or rental car and stay out of Oregon, how would police know? The CA DMV says that Oregon DMV may not even report this to I am out of diversion completly in case I flunk diversion. We don't have diversion in CA. I not even a duii; in CA, I'm a wet reckless. I recently got pulled over in a rental by CHP and that had no notice from my CA driver's license that I was on diversion. This is a hypothetical question only, of course.
I do not follow your question. You may want to rephrase it. If you are told that the CA DMV may receive notice from...
Is there any way to keep drivers license for work in OR after DUI?
My fiance just got arrested for dui. He had a previous dui about 6 year's ago but went through diversion. Any chance he can keep his license to drive for work as that is what he does for a living. If they allow him to keep will his employer need to know?
Your fiancé needs to get a lawyer now. If he has a commercial driver's license, it is at risk. Also, even those who...

You need an OR attorney to make contact with the State to see what your options are. Doing nothing on probation is not...
