Expungment of a criminal record in Oregon is a legal procedure that can be complex and frustrating, especially if you want to get your record cleared fast. Small mistakes can cost a person months of delay or worse. Having the Oregon expungement attorneys at RecordGone.com represent you means that your case will be done right the first time and that you get the fastest possible results.
The process starts by reviewing the criminal record to confirm eligibility. Then a legal document, called a petition, is filed with the court. The petition asks the judge to order that all records relating to the case be expunged. The public cannot access or see an expunged case in Oregon, and the case is completely removed from your criminal record.
The best way for you to determine what options you have to clear your record in Oregon is to run through our confidential and free eligibility test. Below is information on some of the services available in Oregon.
Oregon law allows you to expunge a conviction in many cases. Typically, you must wait three years from the date of conviction before you can petition for expungement. You also cannot have any other convictions (other than the one you are filing to expunge) within the 10 years prior to filing the petition. Additionally, you must have fulfilled all requirements of your sentence and satisfied all obligations, including any fines and restitution.
Oregon law allows you to expunge an arrest record in most instances. You can file for an expungement immediately following the dismissal or acquittal. If charges were not filed in court, you have to wait one year from the date of arrest. You also cannot have been convicted within the ten years leading up to filing the petition or have another arrest (in addition to the arrest you are trying to expunge) within the three years prior to filing the expungement petition.
If you have lost your gun rights in Oregon you may be able to apply for a firearm rights restoration with the court. The law allows for those with a felony conviction or violent misdemeanor to petition for a restoration. You must reside in Oregon and a year must have passed since the discharge of your sentence. Felonies that require imposition of a mandatory minimum sentence and certain felony offenses against a person that included the use of a firearm or deadly weapon are not eligible.
Some felony convictions in Oregon are eligible to be reduced to a misdemeanor. Only certain types of cases are eligible, they include: Class C felonies, Class B felonies for unlawful possession of marijuana or unlawful delivery of marijuana, and Class A felonies for unlawful racketeering activity. You must have successfully completed probation. Additionally convictions prior to 11/1/1989 which were punishable by either a felony or misdemeanor may be eligible for a reduction.
If you are currently serving a probationary sentence, you can petition the court to terminate probation early under Oregon Revised Statutes Section 137.545. A judge can grant probation termination at any time if he or she believes that you are rehabilitated and the purposes of probation are no longer being served.
