DUII RELATED CHARGES AND STATUTES

Quite often DUII Defendants are charged with crimes related to or arising out of the underlying DUII charge.  A District Attorney can prosecute a DUII Defendant with misdemeanor and felony crimes even if the police officer did not give a citation for that charge during the arrest.  In multiple DUII charge cases, it is necessary to defend the related charges, even if the client enters diversion on the DUII.  Paul F. Sherman, an experienced Portland DUII defense attorney is often able to get many, if not all the related charges dismissed upon successful completion of diversion.

 The most common DUII related charges are summarized as follows:

             Reckless Driving – ORS 811.140
