Bend Driving Under the Influence Attorney
Experienced Oregon DUI Attorney at Hughes Law
Driving under the influence (DUI) can be an extremely serious crime and
one that can come with some of the stiffest penalties associated with
criminal offenses. Depending on your certain circumstances you may be
looking at large fines and long jail times. However, a DUI charge is not
the end and with the help of an experienced attorney you can be looking
at no jail time or fines.
If you are pulled over and your blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08 or higher
than you will be charged with driving under the influence. The way that
the arresting officer comes to this conclusion is through a variety of
field sobriety tests. The most accurate of these tests are urine and blood
tests, but at times even these can be misleading.
Typically, you will be subject to a breathalyzer test or one of three coordination
tests that officers have been trained to administer. The coordination
tests include the horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN) test, walk & turn
test, or the one leg stand test. While these are the more common tests
that officers administer to determine a level of intoxication, they are
inaccurate many times and can be administered improperly.
