Someone I know is currently on probation for their 2nd DUII, and just got their 3rd DUII ('04, '13 & '18). The first two included vehicular assaults, this one does not. Probation has been violated with each conviction, resulting in additional charges and time served. Since the 3rd DUII arrest last month, they have violated probation again by not reporting to PO and have had to serve additional pre-scheduled blocks in jail. Court date is soon; what kind of sentence do you think should be reasonably expected?
Penalties for repeat DUII's in Oregon can be very severe. In a situation like this, 6 months or more in jail would not be out of the question. The answer to your question will depend on many factors, including:
1. The level of intoxication or impairment,
2. The amount of other incriminating evidence,
3. The person's willingness to get into treatment and commit to a life of sobriety,
4. The specific court in which the person is being prosecuted, and the skill of defense counsel.
Conviction for a 3rd DUII triggers lifetime revocation of the person's driving privileges.
The person should consult a criminal defense attorney immediately. Many attorneys offer free and confidential consultations to potential clients.
