I am in the middle of a DUII diversion case in WA county and just had my license reinstated. I made an appointment at a highly reputable, local IID shop and took in my electric/gasoline hybrid vehicle with push-button-start. An hour later, after taking the whole interior of the car apart, the shop manager informed me that the installation would require permanent damage/modifications to the vehicle. He also said that the installation may pose a safety issue, so he didn't feel comfortable completing it and refunded my money. A quick Google search has 0 results matching "hybrid IID installation". I'm reluctantly seeking a second opinion from another IID shop, due to concerns about honesty/transparency. Do I have to sacrifice the safety and integrity of my only car for this installation?
If you want a restricted license, you'll have to get an IID. This is the requirement for people who drive drunk, are...
Can I be eligible for diversion program? And if so, after completing the program I will not have a DUii on my record, or have is that work?
Generally, a first DUII will get a person eligible for diversion. However, not all first-time DUII's are eligible, such...
I was charged with a DUII in Oregon. I went to my arraignment this past Monday and there was a statement on that piece of paper they give you that stated the State is objecting to Diversion because of a 2007 DUII conviction. First of all, that isn't me. This is my first DUII not my second. I spoke to the public defenders meadator and he said I needed to get an attorney to clear this all up, but why would they put someone elses wrap sheet in my file? Is this just a common mistake?
These types of mistakes are not "common," but they happen too often. As a former prosecutor, I can state that the...
My son-in-law had a DUI in WA State in Feb 2010. Four months later, he was charged with DV and possession of pot (very small amount). He was at home (and was intoxicated) when this occurred, and the incident was minor. He did not strike my daughter, but held her wrists during a heated argument. That was enough. The DV was ultimately reduced to disorderly conduct, and final disposition was no jail time, no probation and a fine. Assuming fairly standard probation terms from his Feb DUI, what can he expect when he faces the court to answer for the DUI probation violation? Note: He has not had a drink in almost 6 months now, and has several character statements, as well as the support of his wife (my daughter). He is represented. Thanks.
This is a question about Washington, but you put it in the Oregon section. I'd try again in the Washington section.
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.
Every state has different laws and administrative rules governing licensing issues. However as a general rule, many...
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...
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'...
