My Oregon drivers record is a complicated snowball affect

Customer Question

My Oregon drivers record is a complicated snowball affect mess. Previous to 2004, perfect - until, under duress, I gently lined up my Jag's bumper with boyfriend's (became ex, now deceased!) mistress' parked 1983 Taurus & plowed it into an oak tree, thus made an accordian of it. A grand jury endited me 30 later & I promptly surrendered and stupidly plead guilty to Criminal Mischief I, a Felony due to the POLICE REPORT NOT A BODY SHOP OR ESTIMATOR determined the damage >$999 on a $500-at best- car. Misdemeanor's are <$999. I lived as truthfully as I could and learned NEVER plead "guilty" in admittance to a crime; but plead "not guilty" to ensure all facts are looked at for my defense. The judge gave the max sentence; 160 hrs community service, $415 restitution, 90 day license suspension, SR22 insurance x3 years, 2 years non-supervised probation @ $35/mo. & a Felony status on record. I completed all requirements, even reinstated my license Twice to get it suspended again on a technicality. Furthermore I " no showed" @ court d/t a panic attack (I'll stutter & blank out). Although I called the court clerk 1 hr before time to appear, who told me to email the Judge, (I did) it didn't deliver albeit it indicated 'sent'. Stoopid room mate didn't have messenger. Judge attached $2000 fine cast it to collections, @345!×%! × 2 yrs ago. Before said D day, I caught the public defender per chance, & asked if he could represent me (for communication resons) alas PD's don't rep for traffic court. I became disabled during this time & awarded SSD income & status. I really need to drive d/t my disabilities & relocate d/t an abusive alcoholic room mate who sabotages all my efforts @ independence! My ODL is(###) ###-#### There's. a non-movng suspension on it for purchasing. non owner insurance, reinstated license to test drive my ex husbands car (suicide) while the dealership determined a buy out balace, after 2 wks & too much money quoted, I returned it, cancelled & explained to insur rep who sent letter off to DMV. who suspended my license by letter. I appealed. By letter & was shot down. Sooo- anyone dare to help me out? No more *"Tawanda" moments for me, thank you. *a rebellious character in movie "Fried Green Tomatoes", ***** *******
