Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered

Q. Do I have to pay for discovery's I request? Traffic
A: Generally, in traffic cases you have to track down the discovery you want. With OSP, you should send a letter to their records department with a $25.00 check. That's usually their minimum fee. They will notify you if there are further fees that need to be paid. Unfortunately, OSP is extremely slow in providing discovery and your court date may come and go before you receive anything. Traffic cases can be deceptively difficult to win. You may wish to consult with or hire an attorney to help you make your best case. Good luck!
Q. Can the court accept a nolo contendere plea when there is no evidence to indicate guilt? In Oregon
A: It certainly isn't supposed to do that. See ORS § 135.395 - Determining accuracy of plea - After accepting a plea of guilty or no contest, the court shall not enter a judgment without making such inquiry as may satisfy the court that there is a factual basis for the plea. [1973 c.836 §169] Most courts either have the State lay a factual basis or ask defense counsel if there is a factual basis for the plea. If there aren't sufficient facts, the court shouldn't accept the plea.
Q. Transfering Parol to a different state
A: It's possible to transfer your supervision to another state by going through the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision (ICAOS). Check out the ICAOS rules here: http://www.interstatecompact.org/About/NavigatingtheCompact.aspx to see if you would qualify and talk with your PO to see how to begin the process. Good luck!
