Understandably, all drivers who receive their first DUI citation are scared of what comes next. However, it is good to remember that just because you were given a citation doesn’t automatically mean you will be convicted. A good Beaverton Oregon DUI lawyer will do their best to ensure you are treated fairly and their team will work hard to keep the charges at the bare minimum if any.
However, in cases where you are arrested and booked for the citation,
you will receive instructions for the court appearance upon release.
In cases where the driver is charged with a Felony DUI, things are more
complicated and the offender will likely be held in jail until the scheduled
court date. These are the people who will need the help and guidance
of a DUI lawyer the most.
Check the paperwork provided to you upon release for the specifics about the time, date, and location of the court appearance. Most likely, you will be required to appear at the Washington County Circuit Court. Although a Beaverton Oregon DUI lawyer will guide you through the process and explain everything to you in detail, appearing in court on time is still your responsibility.
Be punctual, and never miss your scheduled date in court as this will
lead to more legal trouble. Missing a court appearance will result in
a warrant for your arrest and an additional charge of "Failure
to Appear". On top of that, you will be held in jail until the
next scheduled court date.
Washington County is inside the state of Oregon which is known for
its strict sentencing options. Community service is generally not an
option, but that is to deter repeat offenders. Keep in mind that Oregon
considers DUIs as a state crime and will uphold mandatory penalties
like the suspension of your driver’s license. To avoid any other these
troubles, call a DUI lawyer immediately.
