If you have been arrested or convicted of a crime, it is possible that you can clear your record be filing for an Expungement. ORS 137.225 allows individuals to set aside convictions for most violations, misdemeanors, and Class C felonies if the required time period has passed, which can be either 3 or 10 years. For an arrest that did not result in a conviction, there is only a one year waiting period.
Convictions that cannot be expunged:
- Traffic violations or crimes (DUII, Speeding, Reckless Driving etc)
- Most Sex Crimes (Sex Abuse, Rape, etc.)
- Most A and B Felonies (excluding DCS MJ)
- Any Conviction involving Child Abuse
Circumstances that would prevent you from getting an Expungement:
- You are currently on supervision or probation
- You have been arrested for another charge within the past 3 years
- You currently have criminal charges pending
- You have more than one conviction within the past 10 years
- You currently owe money to the State of Oregon
Most likely, I will be able to tell you whether or not Expungement is a possibility after a brief telephone conversation or email exchange. (503) 693-8725 or firstname.lastname@example.org
