I was convicted of my 4th DUI in 2010 (all in OR) and was sent to prison for 25 months. After parole, I completed all of my conditions, including treatment. I finally got off supervision back in 2013. Now I am planning on moving to Pittsburgh, PA in the near future. Will I be able to get a driver's license there when I move? I haven't been in any trouble since my last DUI in 2010. Thank you.

I was sittin in a car with two other friends parked outside of a friends house, the car was off and a police officer comes to my door so I open it & he demands my ID. I ask why, he refused to explain why so I refused to show it to him. Another cop comes, throws me out of the car, starts twisting my arm as if trying to break it, I start screaming for help & he continues to bend my arm & twist it . Finally he stops and arrests me, then gives me a MIP consumption with no proof of Me drinking & charges me 1,000$. Next day I found bruises from how hard he was grabbing my arm.
Well maybe he was a little rough with you, but when a police officer is simply asking for ID, you show it to them. You...

I'm afraid it's very difficult to understand what you're saying here. (Please see this Guide: http://www.avvo.com/legal-...
attended 17 weeks of dui classes, from Feb to June. Moved to WA June for employment but told no Oregon treatment would count! Accused of not attending victims panel march, but did in February! Attended 6 weeks of dui classes from august to October! Was told no treatment would count without their referral from them and duration was late June to August 8 to receive referral and had arranged July 2 for classes in WA! attended court for violation of dui, court questioned dui certification, and if so, no classes could possibly count and have to complete 90 days of sobriety, and court can decide Jan 21 to revocate or allow extension for 6 months of dui!
I understand your frustration and yes, you can sue the court. However, you will very likely lose. So I would not do...
All, Please help me here, I got 24 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 ordered court document and police report for my records, 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 24 months arrest, (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 ?
Sounds like you've answered your own question. None of the things that would disqualify you from expungement exist in...
