19 year old Logan Kitzhaber, son of former Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber, was sentenced today in Lincoln County Circuit Court to 7 days in jail, a $2,500 fine, his driver’s license revoked for five years and ordered to maintain a drug rehabilitation program he’s already enrolled in. He was also put on 5 years probation. If he violates it, he’ll be imprisoned for a much longer stay.
Young Kitzhaber was DUI-prescription drugs when his vehicle crossed over the center line on Highway 101 last summer, in north Lincoln City, injuring an older couple in an oncoming R/V. It was the first vacation they’d had in years. The husband suffered medical complications from the wreck and has been confined to a wheel chair ever since.
