There are a number of different types of violations in Oregon such as traffic tickets, hunting and game offenses, and alcohol/drug violations such as Minor In Possession of Alcohol or Possession of Less Than One Ounce of Marijuana. Violations in Oregon are punishable by a fine, but the court cannot impose probation, jail or prison time. While some people may shrug off a violation charge, it is important to note that some violations carry collateral consequences such as the loss of a significant privilege (i.e. hunting or driving).
