Most people arrested for an Oregon City drunk-driving charge assume the case against them is insurmountable. In fact, there are many and specific steps the investigating officer must follow in conducting a DUI investigation. If your case involves field sobriety tests (FSTs) and/or use of the intoxilyzer machine to read your blood alcohol content, the law requires the investigating officer to abide by complicated rules of procedure. If any of these investigative steps or procedures are violated, you may have a complete defense against your DUI charge.
Further, all courts handling DUII charges out of Oregon City participate in the DUI Diversion Program. In Diversion, you will be asked to sign an agreement offered by the court. In addition, you will be required to undergo a substance abuse evaluation and undergo treatment if you are found to have a problem with drugs or alcohol. In addition, you will be required to pay various fees and associated with your charge as well as attend a victim’s panel and have a device attached to the ignition system of your vehicle in order to prevent future DUI charges. After you fulfill your responsibilities under the diversion program for 12 months, you will be dismissed from diversion and your DUI goes away.
