Salem Drunk Driving Defense Attorney
Arrested for DUI in Salem Oregon? If you are pulled over for drunk driving,
and you have a Blood Alcohol Level (BAC) of .15 percent or above, you
can be fined for a minimum of $2,000.
DUII arrests (driving under the influence of intoxicants) are categorized into two separate cases:
- A criminal case, which can include jail time, fines, mandatory rehabilitative classes, required ignition interlock devices and other consequences
- A DMV case, which involves possible driver’s license suspension from 90 days up to three years
There are also varying legal ramifications if you are a first-time, second-time
or third-time offender or more. A first-time DUI offender is most likely
- 18-month to 24-month probation period
- At least 48 hours in jail or at least 80 hours of community service
- Court costs, fees and assessments totaling about $400
- A mandatory minimum fine of $1,000
- A court order to obey all laws during a probation period
- A court order not to drink alcohol, or use or possess drugs
- A court order to attend a victims’ impact panel
Multiple DUII Offenses
For a second DUI, you are facing an increased mandatory minimum fine of $1,500
and an extended driver’s license suspension of up to three years.
If you are a third-time DUI offender, the offense has been elevated to a felony,
which can result in a prison sentence of up to five years. Your mandatory
minimum fine will increase to at least $2,000, and your driver’s license
could be revoked for life.
Four or more DUI conviction cases face a prison term of at least 18 months,
along with a lifetime suspension of driving privileges and mandatory fines.
Our aggressive attorneys will fight for your rights and work to win your DUI case.
