Hoevet Olson Howes attorneys Per Olson and Megan McVicar recently won a reversal of a conviction for our client before the Oregon Court of Appeals.The Court ruled that the trial court should have suppressed evidence obtained from an unlawful stop of the client that occurred when the client attended a victim’s panel pursuant to a DUI diversion program.
