Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a mistake that many Oregonians make each year. This mistake can have long lasting consequences if the legal case is not handled correctly. People may only think about the criminal side of the case in this situation. They may be worried about fines, jail time and the possibility of an ignition interlock device in these situations.
An Oregon man has been arrested for driving under the influence following a police chase. DUI charges are serious in Oregon and can result in prison sentences, large fines, loss of driving privileges, community service or alcohol education classes. In some cases, the penalties can be more severe because of a person's criminal record or because of the circumstances surrounding the arrest.
