Can I plea bargain my way out of a DUII in Oregon?
No. In Oregon a DUII will never be plea-bargained to a non-alcohol/controlled substance offense. The legislature has passed a law that makes such plea agreements unlawful. Accordingly, the prosecutor has no discretion to dismiss the DUII offense in exchange for a plea of guilt to a different offense.
