Driving under the influence is an easy mistake to make. If a person has a drink or two, it can be easy to over indulge and not even realize it. However, this simple mistake has very serious consequences.
Oregon residents who are convicted of driving under the influence of intoxicants face serious criminal penalties. These penalties can include large fines, jail or prison time, community service, a driver's license suspension, mandatory alcohol education classes, an ignition interlock device and more. These criminal penalties can affect a person for years after the person's arrest.
