Beaverton DUII and Beaverton Municipal Court Information


 

I just got arrested for an DUII charge in the City of Beaverton.  What happens now?

 

For general information on Oregon DUI arrests please consult the main page of the Oregon DUI Guide and the DUII Diversion Guide

 

If you were arrested in Beaverton you were either given a citation to appear in Beaverton Municipal Court or booked into the Washington County Jail.  If you were booked into jail you most likely were given a release agreement directing you to appear in court at a future date.  If you were arrested for a felony DUII (two or more prior DUII's in the past 10 years) or other serious charge you may be held in custody at least through your first court appearance (and perhaps longer).  Beaverton Municipal Court, like all municipal courts, does not handle felony offenses.

You must attend your court appearance or a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest. 

Where am I supposed to appear for court?

 

Read your paperwork.  Either your citation or your release agreement will tell you where to appear for your first court date.  If you were arrested in the City of Beaverton, your first court appearance is likely at the Beaverton Municipal Court (4755 SW Griffith Drive in Beaverton, Oregon).  This also the location of Beaverton City Hall and the Beaverton Police Department.  There is one courtroom in the building.

 

Remember to show up on time.  Check in at the window before entering the courtroom.  If you fail to check in, your case will not be called. 

Will all my court appearances be held in this building?

Yes.  Beaverton Municipal Court only has one courtroom and all proceedings are held there.

Are there any sentencing options that are unique to Beaverton?

Beaverton Municipal court sometimes allows different sentencing options.  Speak with your attorney for more information about this program.  Keep in mind that DUII is a state crime.  While each court treats these charges in their own way, the DUII statutes and mandatory penalties such as license suspensions are the same statewide. 

 

Beaverton does have a specialized DUII court known as the Beaverton Sobriety Opportunity for Beginning Recovery (B-SOBR) program.  You should fully understand the consequences of this intensive program before you agree to enter.
