How does a DUI charge in Columbia county work?
Like most states, Oregon takes strong measures to discourage DUI. The penalties you face may be somewhat limited if it is your first offense, you were not in an accident and if you were just marginally above the legal blood alcohol limit.
While I will do my very best to reduce your charges or to get your case dismissed, prosecutors will consider the following when charging you:
- How many times you have been charged with DUI
- Whether you were transporting people younger than 18 in your car
- Your blood alcohol content (BAC)
Needless to say, aggravating circumstances will result in the harshest penalties which can mean a long period of time without your license as well as a steep fine and even jail time.
This is why when looking for a DUI attorney Columbia County drivers should consider me as their first stop. My extensive experience in defending DUI cases can ensure that we mount the best defense for your particular case.
