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.
Again, it was a second DUI in less than 5 years. I refused to blow on the bases that I would plea guilty regardless. Though I did take a breathalizer to be released from custody. This year, I recieved a letter from ODOT instructing me to get an Interlock device and an SR-22. I did only to find out that, though my DUI suspension was over, my impiied concent suspension is still in effect. Is there any option through the courts for me to get any driving privlige of any kind? PS. My bench probation will be over this year and I am able to pay off my remaining court fines if this is relevent.
Gosh, you should have asked a lawyer before responding to DMV's letter by incurring the expense of an IID and SR-22....
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...
