The DUII Case Process

If you’ve been charged with Drunk Driving (DUII) in Oregon, you probably have many questions on what happens next. First and foremost you will want to protect your rights going forward with aggressive legal representation by speaking with an experienced DUI Attorney.

Few people are aware that if you are arrested for a DUI, there are two ways that your license can be suspended. One is as a result of a criminal conviction and the other is from the Department of Motor Vehicles. To avoid a DMV 90 day suspension, you need to request a hearing date. Typically this has to be done within 10 days of your failed BAC.

If you are arrested and blow a BAC in excess of 0.08%, the DMV will suspend your license for 90 days. This is important if you are diversion eligible. If you enter diversion and successfully complete it, you will not have your license suspended by the court. However, that does not protect you from the DMV’s 90-day suspension. That is, unless you request and prevail at your DMV Hearing.
