Oregon Criminal Record Expungement, Sealing, Pardons, and Restoration of Rights

Oregon Criminal Expungement & Record Clearing Services

Expunging your criminal history is the first part in taking control of your life. Have you been arrested? Did that arrest turn into a conviction in Oregon? Good news, if you’re eligible, you can expunge either the arrest and/or the conviction!

Oregon realizes that you make mistakes and have designed their laws to help their citizens rectify their past and provide for a better future.

Oregon makes criminal records particularly available to the public, meaning that your personal information can be accessed by anybody with an internet connection and a few dollars to spend.

Our Expungement Law Firm is committed to restoring and protecting your privacy, and will work relentlessly to help you leave your record in the past.

Expungements of Convictions

Expungements in Oregon are generally limited to Misdemeanors, Class C Felonies, and certain Class B Felonies relating to Marijuana. Traffic crimes violations such as speeding, traffic crimes such as DUII, sex crimes, violent felonies covered by Measure 11, offenses relating to children, and sex offenses are typically not eligible to be set aside. Obtaining an expungement essentially results in the complete destruction of a criminal file-it is completely deleted from the public record as if it never happened. Afterwards, you can legally state that you have not been arrested or convicted of the expunged crime.

For qualifying offenses, three years from the date of conviction must pass before the criminal record relating to the conviction and its proceedings to begin the process. If you have been convicted of any other crimes (excluding traffic offenses), this waiting period is extended to 10 years. Once the applicable waiting period has passed, you must meet each of the following conditions below.

You will typically qualify for expungement of certain convictions in Oregon if:

  • Three years has passed since the conviction;
  • You have not been convicted of a non-traffic offense within the last 10 years;
  • You are not currently being prosecuted for a crime; and
  • Your have not had another conviction set-aside in the last ten years

These rules can be complex, so contact our experienced attorneys to see if you qualify for expungement-we are happy to provide a FREE consultation to let you know what your options are to clear your criminal record.

Expungements of Oregon Arrests, Dismissals, or Acquittals

Charges resulting in dismissals or not-guilty verdicts do not have a waiting period, and may be expunged immediately if you meet the requirements below. However, for arrests where there were no charges ever brought, a one year waiting period applies in addition to the requirements below.

You will typically qualify for expungement of an arrest, dismissal, or acquittal in Oregon if:

  • You must have successfully completed all conditions imposed on you by the court;
  • You must not have been convicted of another crime within the previous 10 years (excluding traffic violations);
  • You cannot be currently under prosecution for a criminal offense (excluding traffic violations); and
  • You have not had another conviction set-aside in the last ten years.

These rules can be complex, so contact our experienced attorneys to see if you qualify to have your record sealed-we are happy to provide a free consultation to let you know what your options are to clear your criminal record.
