Last year I was charged and booked in jail on a charge. I was acquitted later, and I have also expunged my arrest record (suppression of fingerprints etc). I am currently applying for a job, and they are asking whether I was released from PRISON ...
Under Oregon's Expungement Law (ORS 137.225), an arrest or conviction that has been set aside is a legal nullify, and you are entitled to state that you were NOT arrested or jailed or charged with a crime. And yes, there is a difference between jail and prison. But if your arrest was set aside in accordance with ORS 137.225, you are entitled to answer "no" regardless.See question
I have been accused of physically abusing my step daughter. I have done no such thing and I am going to have to go in for an interview with the police. I do not know what to do. I am scared, heartbroken, and I don't know where to start.
Be smart. Don't talk to the police without an attorney on board.
Whenever the police are under investigation they always REMAIN SILENT and CONSULT LEGAL COINSEL.
The reason is that the police well know that the legal system is not kind to people who act otherwise.
Don't post anything else about your situation online. Consult an attorney immediately.See question
My girlfriend might be pregnant. But we have been together before I was a adult and we were wondering if the Romeo and Juliet law can work in this situation
Oregon's so-called Romeo & Juliet law is not a defense in all situations. It is not possible to go into every detail in this format. You and your girlfriend should consult lawyers to make sure you understand your rights and responsibilities in this delicate situation. Not wise to post further information in a public Internet forum such as this.See question
I got arrested with a large amount of drugs and they raided my house and kicked my door in without any search warrant,they let me out not even 12 hours later with no court dates or anything,can they bring this up again later and arrest me again? I...
Yes they can. The government has a long time to issue charges against you. The time period is called the Statute of Limitations (SOL). In Oregon, the SOL for felonies like this is usually 3 years. In the Federal system, the SOL is generally 6 years. Be smart. Get a criminal defense lawyer. Confide only in your lawyer. Do not speak to anyone else about this. Do not post anything else online about this. There is much that a good lawyer can do. Cooperate with your lawyer.See question

Multiple criminal charges can lead to increasing consequences. For instance, when a person is convicted of repeat offenses, expungement becomes much more difficult. You should discuss your options in private with a criminal defense attorney. Do not post anything further about your situation online.See question

It is not possible to answer your question without more information. Results in cases like this vary widely depending on the evidence of guilt, the availability of any legal defenses, the person's prior record, the attitude of the victim, the county where the prosecution is taking place, and the defendant's willingness to get into a treatment program. These things should be discussed in private with a criminal defense attorney.See question

Go to the juvenile court in the county where this occurred and file an expungement motion. Upon the granting of your motion, all police records about the matter will be destroyed.See question
If one is arrested for possession of methamphetamines, what does it take to get convicted? I ask because she was arrested for it but not convicted. Could an example be that it was in the vehicle but not on her person?
A person can possess something that is not in the person's hand. For example, if you own a vehicle, you possess the contents of the vehicle even if you are not inside the vehicle at the time of the search. There are many variations, however. In order to be guilty of a crime, the prosecutor must prove that you knew the vehicle contained contraband. If the contraband was in the vehicle, but you were unaware of that, you might not be guilty. It is not possible nor wise to try and analyze your friend's case without knowing more information. Your friend should consult an attorney in private.See question
