Experienced DUII attorney Rhett Bernstein can tell you more about your sentencing options, though it is good to keep in mind that a DUI charge is a state crime, it’s true that each court treats DWI charges in their own way, DUI statutes and mandatory penalties, such as suspended license, are the same statewide.
Clackamas County Treatment Courts
The Clackamas County DUII Treatment Court program uses the twelve-step addiction treatment model with added sanctions and incentives, designed to help program members take responsibility for their actions and become successful in their recovery process. This program is open to DUII offenders who have three or more Misdemeanor DUII charges or a high Breathalyzer reading or Blood Alcohol Test resulting in a DUII charge.
Clackamas County DUII Diversion Program
Under Oregon law, a person facing their first drunk driving charge may be eligible to enter a DUI Diversion Program rather than serve jail time. To be allowed to enter into the program you must plead guilty or no contest to the charge. If you comply with the terms and stay out of trouble your DUI will be dismissed at the end of one year.
