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...

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...

Question Regarding DUI after applying for DACA
A friend of mine made a horrible mistake and has a court date for a DUI. He already applied for DACA Prior to his DUI ticket. The DUI did not involve any injury or damage to property.He had a Prior DUI charge which was dismissed. Can he be deported when they begin to do the background check on his DACA? Should he seek consultation from his Previous Immigration attorney? I told him to contact a local DUI attorney to see if anything can be done regarding lowering his DUI charge if possible. Thank you.
DUI can be a problem when DACA is up for renewal. Talk to an immigration lawyer for review of the record.
How to go about DUI expungement
In 2007 when I was 18 I got a DUI in CA. It was the first time I had been in trouble and I haven't been in trouble since. I plead no contest to 1) 23152(a) VC M 2) 23152(b) VC M and then it says ct 1 was dismissed. I received 3 years of unsupervised probations and 3 months of alcohol classes which were all completed. I wanted to see about getting my DUI expunged, I printed forms CR-180 and MC-031. I now live in Oregon so I wanted to ask if this is something I will be able to do from up here and without a lawyer? Thank you in advance for your help!
In Oregon it is not possible to expunge DUII or any other traffic offense. ORS 137.225(6)(a). I think you should...
