ORS 813.470
Department notation on record of person acquitted after suspension

The Department of Transportation shall make a notation on the driving record of a person indicating that the person was acquitted of a charge of driving under the influence of intoxicants if:


The person’s driving privileges were suspended because a breath or blood test under ORS 813.100 (Implied consent to breath or blood test) disclosed that the person had a level of alcohol in the person’s blood that constituted being under the influence of intoxicating liquor under ORS 813.300 (Use of blood alcohol percentage as evidence);


An accusatory instrument was filed charging the person with driving under the influence of intoxicants in violation of ORS 813.010 (Driving under the influence of intoxicants) arising out of the same incident that led to the suspension of the person’s driving privileges;


The person was acquitted of the charge; and


The person presents the department with a certified copy of the judgment of acquittal from the court clearly showing the location of the court, the date of the arrest and the findings of the court. [1987 c.303 §2; 1993 c.305 §8; 1995 c.568 §8]
