Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicant Charges in Oregon

In the state of Oregon, impaired driving will be charged as DUII (driving under the influence of intoxicants). Oregon DUIIs prohibit driving with a BAC of 0.08% or more or driving under the influence of any alcohol, cannabis, a controlled substance, or an inhalant. This is one of the most common charges that you can face, but when you do find yourself accused of driving under the influence, it's important that you act fast to secure focused and supportive legal representation from Baxter Harder, LLC.

Find out more about the DUII penalties you may face.

These are serious charges that you can face and the punishment doesn’t always fit the crime. Under Ballot Measure 73, there are also mandatory minimum sentences in some cases of repeat DUIIs. There are available options to protect you. One of these is the DUII Diversion Program and through this option it may be possible to have your DUII dismissed at the end of the year.

While a DUII is a charge that many people find themselves dealing with, the penalties you may suffer can still be severe. If someone was killed while you were allegedly under the influence, you can also face increasingly high penalties for manslaughter charges.

    “Casey Baxter is one of the best lawyers I've worked with. His many years of experience in the courtroom as well as a former prosecutor was apparent in negotiating my specific case. He worked on my case until a resolution was accomplished that he and I both determined was the best outcome for me and all the work he put in for my release, plea and sentencing was performed in a time frame that was appropriate for not only my case but for me as well. I would highly recommend Mr. Baxter for anyone looking to hire a tremendously enthusiastic albeit law savvy attorney. Thanks Casey!”
