A DUII conviction in Oregon can open a Pandora’s box of adverse consequences for you. At a minimum you are facing a fine of $1,000 to $6,200. You may receive 18 to 24 months of probation. You will be compelled to attend a Victim's Impact Panel seminar and you will be prohibited from consuming any type of alcohol or drugs. You will be required to pay $300.00 to $400.00 in court fees alone and an additional $150.00 in alcohol evaluation fees. You may be compelled to participate in a costly mandatory alcohol rehabilitation program. Invariably, your automobile insurance rates will rise to astronomical heights. The stakes rise should this be your second or third offense in which case the fines and probationary periods rise dramatically. You may be facing an extended period of time in a State prison.
