About DUI Charges in Portland
Under Oregon DUI laws, an intoxicant can mean not only alcohol, but marijuana, street drugs, prescriptions drugs and even over the counter medications. If the intoxicant you are taking affects your mental or physical ability to drive, you can be charged with DUI. The level where you are considered, presumed, to be DUI in Oregon, as far as alcohol goes, is .08% or higher.
When facing this offense, the consequences for conviction could result in fines, jail time, suspension of your license, community service, mandatory drug or alcohol rehab and probation. If you or a loved one if facing these charges, consult with our DUII lawyer for advice on what your best legal course of action should be.
Breath, Blood and Field Sobriety Tests
The key evidence used by the prosecuting attorney in a Portland DUI case will most likely be the outcome of a breath or blood test and field sobriety testing. Field sobriety tests are typically used to establish probable cause that a driver is intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Failed field sobriety tests are used to provide an officer with the grounds to make an arrest for DUI. A breath, blood or urine test will be administered after a driver is arrested for DUI and will be used to determine whether the driver has a blood alcohol level of .08% or greater. Though a failed breath test and field sobriety tests may seem to make a DUI case helpless, there are ways that an experienced lawyer can challenge the results. The tests may be administered incorrectly or may be graded improperly, or a breath test device may not be calibrated according to state standards. By investigating these tests from every angle, an attorney can determine how to challenge them.
