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.
