Portland Law

I have sort of a unique situation I was hoping you could help me with. Earlier this year I received a DUI in California, but was already in the process of relocating to Oregon.. My California license was suspended but i had already given up my address and am now residing in Oregon. My attorney has told me that it is possible to serve the sentence in Oregon but that I will not be able to get a california license until i take the in-person alcohol class in california.. my question is, If I take the class in Oregon and then a years time goes by will I be able to get a License in Oregon?
The best person to answer this question is your attorney. "Alcohol class" can mean a lot of different things but my...
I have a somewhat unique situation - I "earned" 2 DUIs while in Arizona and after each one did the needful in order to reinstate my license .. The requirements after a second DUI in Arizona include treatment, a year's revocation, and a release from a licensed therapist that i am fit to drive. I did all of this and submitted it to Arizona DMV so that I would be eligible there, and could submit for my license here in Oregon where i'd recently moved. Before actually going in to be tested and granted a license I had an incident with prescribed medication (ambien - sleepdriving) and wound up with a third conviction here in Oregon. This occurred in January, 2012 and I am about to complete my DISP requirements. My question is this: I understand my license is permanently revoked in Oregon. I am moving back to Arizona in Spring or Summer of 2014. I know that you have to satisfy all requirements resulting from a prior suspension in order to ever be eligible for a license in another state, and for me that means petitioning the court in 10 years. But i'm wondering - hoping for a miracle loophole, really... Since I never HAD a license in Oregon to BE revoked, is it still in the National Registry? I am pretty sure I know the answer... :) Thanks for any insight you can provide!!
I think your safest bet is to check with an attorney in Arizona. Oregon can only restrict your Oregon driving...
All of my stuff is in storage in California and I no longer have a place of residence in the state. My mail has been forwarding to my parents place in Oregon (Portland) since April. Is it possible to carry out the sentence in Oregon? Can I transfer the case to a court here?
Cases like this cannot be transferred between States. However, if you were to be placed on probation for this case, it...
I have a first time third degree theft conviction in Washington State in 2012. I couldn't do any community service because I felt that if I didn't work, I couldn't live. I was already on a check-to-check basis already. Now I am more stable with my money and really want to get my life in order. The judge said if I completed my twenty hours of service and attended a consumer awareness class, my charges would be dismissed. I didn't do any of that. I am now living in Oregon. What should I do now?
You should check in with either the attorney that represented you on initially or with another attorney who is licensed...
I received a DUII in Oregon in December of 2012. The plea and sentencing were in early February. I had to pay the fine and do 7 days work crew as I had a prior DUI 3 years ago ( I know VERY stupid). Wasn't booked or anything - fully cooperated and got a ride home from the officer - not that it matters. Anyway - I moved to a new city and started my treatment with Kaiser, who I had insurance with. About half way through all is going good - but I got a new job and lost Kaiser insurance so I was not allowed to attend anymore which was TERRIBLE. Got re-referred to another program and completed about 8 classes with UA's etc. Had to reschedule a one-on-one with the counselor who is less than professional and he tells me I have to restart program Can I ask judge to consider requirements met
You can and you should ask the judge to deem your requirements met. Whether of not the judge will grant your request...
I have had an interlock device ony var for 7 months with no problems, as part of diversion program. Last week I had 2 "fails" as I attempted to drive. Waited 20 min, blew a third time and passed. Im scared! I blew successfully 2 more times during my drive home, and no lock out or anything. Honestly, what am I looking at dealing with when they detect thesr 2 "fails" when they run the report, later this month?
What you need is to get an experienced attorney on this asap. 'Fails' often lead to a show cause motion being filed,...
I was out with a friend At a bar he got intoxicated the ambulance took him so I left home, the next day he called the police saying I stole 300$ from him. The cop called me and asked me questions about that night, I told him I didn't take nothing from him, and I also told my friend I didn't, I honestly didn't!!. So he is now threatening me that he will file a police report, my problems is I don't want to show up in court because I have a previous charge of dui, I'm going through diversion. what can I do? I told him I will give you the money if you want and he said something about its the principle not the money. And can they pull out the video records of the bar to see if I actually was their its not a crime I doubt that will happen but who knows.
Well, unfortunately you can't stop him from making a report or from the state pursuing charges against you. The best...
