Driving Under the Influence

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.
