Eugene, Oregon DUII Diversion Program Qualifications

Have you been charged with a DUII and need to know your options? If so it’s time to hire a qualified Eugene criminal defense lawyer. At Veralrud and Fowler we have years of experience handling DUII charges and would be honored to serve as your legal representation.

In certain instances those who have been charged with DUII have the ability to go into the Diversion program. In order to qualify for the Diversion program:

  • You cannot have been charged with driving while under the influence of intoxicants or other drug and alcohol related charges in the last 15 years. This includes having been in DUII Diversion within the 15 year time frame. If your conviction was after January 1st, 2010 then only 10 years must have passed.
  • The accident you were involved in when under the influence cannot have injured or killed any other person. If you were injured you can still qualify for DUII Diversion.
  • If you are a commercial truck driver operating with a CDL (commercial driver’s license) you cannot enter into DUII Diversion.

Your Eugene criminal defense lawyer will be able to help determine if you qualify for DUII Diversion and help you enter the program in order that the DUII you have been charged with is dismissed at the end of the program.

What to Expect in Oregon DUII Diversion

Once you have been accepted into the DUII Diversion Program the court you will be referred to Alcohol and Drug Evaluation and Screening Specialists or ADES. At ADES you will undergo an evaluation where they will determine if you have any substance abuse issues and prescribe treatment that you will be required to complete as part of your DUII Diversion Program. They will then refer you to a drug and alcohol treatment facility where you will undergo your specific treatment plan. ADES will monitor you in order to make sure that you are attending the classes and completely the treatment program.

Within 90 days of being in DUII Diversion you will be required to attend a victim’s panel. In this panel victims of drunk driving accidents, members of MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), and police officers will go over how drunk driving have impacted their lives and the downfalls of intoxicated driving. You will also be required to refrain from imbibing in alcohol or other non-prescribed substances for the year that you are in the treatment. An ignition interlock device (breathalyzer) will be placed into your car to ensure that you do not drive while intoxicated during the duration of your treatment.
