West Linn General Information

West Linn is a city in Clackamas County, Oregon that was incorporated in 1913. It’s now primarily a residential suburb of Portland, and is within the Portland metropolitan area. West Linn has a population of over 25,000.

West Linn DUI Enforcement

Law enforcement agencies most responsible for West Linn DUI enforcement are the West Linn Police Department, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, and the Oregon State Police. Most West Linn DUI investigations result in either an arrest or citation without arrest.

West Linn DUI Cases

West Linn DUI citations are typically forwarded to the Clackamas County District Attorney’s Office for a charging decision. If a formal criminal charge is filed, then the case typically proceeds through the Clackamas County Circuit Court. Most drivers charged with a first-time DUI are eligible for Oregon’s DUI Diversion Program. DUI cases that are not available for diversion may still be eligible for dismissal, or may be able to be resolved through plea negotiations or trial.

West Linn DUI Implied Consent Hearings (aka “DMV Hearings”)

If you failed a breath test or refused the breath test, you will likely be looking at an administrative driver’s license suspension. This license suspension is separate from the criminal charge for DUI, and the license suspension can be imposed even before your criminal case is resolved. An administrative hearing called a “DMV Implied Consent hearing” is available to challenge this license suspension, but the request for the hearing must be made within ten-days of the date of your arrest. It is crucial that you have your attorney request this hearing immediately. The hearing will be scheduled and held by the Office of Administrative Hearings. The hearing will typically take place within 30-days after your arrest, and can be in-person or by phone. If you or the arresting officer demand an in-person hearing, the hearing location may not necessarily where you live, but rather will be within 100 air-miles of where the DUI arrest took place.

West Linn DUI Jail Service

Drivers arrested for DUI in Clackamas County will typically be booked into the Clackamas County Jail. If any jail service is required later as part of a sentence, you will serve additional jail at this location.
