If you've been charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII), you are probably most concerned about avoiding having a conviction on your record and all of the legal penalties that go with it. At Ridehalgh & Associates, LLC, Attorneys at Law, our lawyers have successfully represented numerous clients facing DUII charges. Whether you were charged with driving while under the influence of drugs or of having a blood alcohol content (BAC) over Oregon's limit of .08, we will seek out opportunities to prevent a conviction.
Diversion programs are extremely useful for clients who are primarily interested in getting out of jail and clearing their record after a first offense. Taking advantage of existing diversion programs is often the most efficient way to achieve these goals. However, our firm has experience successfully negotiating for the creation of a personalized diversion program in situations where a standard option is not available.
Washington County, Oregon, has a diversion program in place for all first-time DUII offenders. In other counties, an individualized program can be negotiated on a case-by-case basis. A diversion program will dismiss a DUII charge after completing a clearly defined set of tasks. Usually this involves activities such as attending alcohol and drug abuse classes.
