|What is the Monitored Misdemeanor Program?||When you are on the Monitored Misdemeanor Program (previously called Enhanced Bench probation) and sometimes called monitored bench probation, your name is entered into the Law Enforcement Data System (LEDS). If you have contact with the police, the Monitored Misdemeanor Program staff is notified, investigates the contact, and reports what occurred to your judge. The most common violations reported are drinking, driving illegally, and committing new crimes. You are charged $15.00 a month to be in this program.|
|Do I have a probation officer with Monitored Misdemeanor Program?||NO. You are on BENCH PROBATION and you are directly responsible to your judge for completing all the conditions of your probation. **** If you already have a probation officer, then you are on formal probation, and you are not eligible for the Monitored Misdemeanor Program.|
|What do I do now?
What should I do first?
|DID YOU CHECK IN AT ROOM 106 ON THE FIRST FLOOR OF THE COURTHOUSE? IF NO, RETURN TO THE COURTHOUSE IMMEDIATELY!!!IF YES,
This is very important: YOU MUST REPORT TO THE DUII EVALUATORSWITHIN 25 DAYSOF GOING TO COURT, OR YOU WILL BE REPORTED AS ‘NON-COMPLIANT’ TO THE JUDGE.
|Where can I get a copy of my police report and DMV (driving) record?||Get your police report from your attorney, or from the police agency that cited/arrested you for the DUII. The agency will charge you for the copy; ask them how much, and how to pay for it.
Go to any full service DMV office and request a copy of your driving record; the fee is $3.00. The best thing to do is ask DMV to fax a copy of your record to the DUII Evaluators’ office at 503-719-5742.

|OTHER QUESTIONS: WHAT IF….. ??|
|…I miss my Victims Panel date or I don’t have the $50 fee?||Return to Room 106 at the Courthouse to reschedule your appointment or call #503-413-4960.|
|… I don’t see the DUII evaluators within 25 days of being sentenced?||Your judge could issue a warrant for your arrest. Go to the DUII Evaluation office at 506 SW 6thAve, Suite 611 Portland. Make an appointment for the screening assessment.|
|… I don’t have the time or money to do any of this right now, so is it OK if I wait a year? After all, I have at least two years on this probation?||NO-- it is NOT OK to wait a year, or even a month. Your judge gave you instructions to IMMEDIATELY schedule Victims Panel; to report to the DUII Evaluators within 25 days; to schedule your jail time (if any); and to start paying a certain amount of money every month on your fines. The court reviews your case 90-120 days after sentencing. If you ignore these instructions and do nothing, your judge could either issue a warrant for your arrest, or send you a notice that a show cause hearing has been set and you must go back to court. The judge can either give you more time on probation – up to six years, or revoke your probation and put you in jail for up to a year.|

It’s OK to move to another county within Oregon, but you must always report to your Multnomah County probation judge. ALWAYS send a change of address notice to your probation judge AND to the Enhanced Bench office, even if you are just changing apartments in the same building.
