While no one ever says, “I’m going to drink and drive tonight,” sometimes things don’t always turn out the way you planned. When that happens, it’s time to hire a Bend DUI lawyer from the Donahue Law Firm. Unlike most other criminal charges, almost anyone can find themselves facing a DUI. Still, DUI convictions carry serious consequences. Oregon DUII penalties range from steep fines and jail time, to lengthy prison terms and losing your license–for life. The last thing you want when facing consequences like these is to face them alone.
We encourage you not to wait to speak with a DUI attorney about your case. The sooner you hire an attorney the easier it is for your attorney to ensure proper action is taken–and missteps avoided. Serious deadlines with grave consequences exist in DUII cases. Worse, these deadlines are not just for the criminal case. Strict deadlines also apply to the administrative process. The administrative portion of your DUI arrest will automatically suspend your driver’s license within 30 days, if you do not request a DMV hearing. In order to contest the administrative suspension you must request a DUI DMV Hearing within 10 days. Other deadlines also exist regarding your eligibility for Oregon DUII Diversion.
If you have been arrested on DUI or DUII charges, a Bend DUI Lawyer at the Donahue Law Firm can help.
You don’t have to be “drunk” to be arrested for “drunk driving”. In Oregon, all that is required is “impaired driving”. In addition, law enforcement agencies in Oregon make DUII arrests based on field sobriety clues alone. Just because a person shows DUI clues (such as bloodshot or watery eyes, or nystagmus) does not mean that person is driving impaired. Everyone has had watery eyes at some point in their life, many more for those with allergies. In addition, some 4% of the population has nystagmus, a condition that causes involuntary eye movement. While there are alternative explanations for almost all DUI clues, police and law enforcement are not required to consider those alternative explanations in order to make an arrest. This means that a number of people in Oregon are being arrested without being legally impaired (without driving under the influence of intoxicants). Sadly, a large number of these same people will plead guilty. However, a knowledgeable DUII defense lawyer will know how to combat and defend against such arrests.
