Here is the statute.

It is a Class A misdemeanor. Misdemeanor DUI is punishable by a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a fine of $6,250. In Oregon, DUI is a misdemeanor crime unless you have three or more prior DUI convictions in the past 10 years. If convicted of misdemeanor DUI, your Oregon driving privileges will be suspended for one year. Oregon takes this charge very seriously. While jail time is unlikely, you're certainly looking at if convicted a fine, fees/costs of several hundred dollars, alcohol/drug assessment and treatment, and attendance at a victim impact treatment session. You'll also likely be sentenced to probation, which can include things like random drug testing and community service.

Oregon law specifically prohibits plea bargaining. Oregon Code 813.170 states that "a person charged with the offense of driving under the influence of intoxicants shall not be allowed to plead "guilty" or "no contest" to any other offense in exchange for a dismissal of the offense charged. No district attorney or city attorney shall make any motion and no judge shall enter any order in derogation of this section.
