I have 2 sexual conduct with minor felonies, 1 in Ga in 1977 and 1 in Az in 1990 . There is currently a CPS investigation based on a recent allegation that allegedly occurred over a year ago
Oregon law has very harsh consequences for situations like this. Under Ballot Measure 11, a person can go to prison for many years for certain sex offenses, even as a first time offender. You need to consult an attorney who regularly defends clients facing charges like this. Do not talk to the police, or anyone else investigating the matter. If you are contacted by the police, the only safe thing you can say is that you WILL NOT SPEAK WITHIUT YOUR ATTORNEY PRESENT. That is exactly what the police do when they are under investigation. The reason is that the police well know that the legal system is not fair to people who do otherwise. Be smart, and consult an attorney immediately. And no not post anything else about this online. What you post on a public forum such as this can be read by the police and others who may wish to cause you harm.See question
I was arrested last weekend with a group of friends for disorderly conduct. We were being taunted which ended up leading to a fight (we were much more on the defensive side of the fight and I got beat up pretty good). We did react to the taunting ...
Normally, at your first court appearance you will find out what charge the prosecutor intends to prosecute against you, and you enter a not guilty plea. There are some exceptions to this, however. For example, some courts offer reduced consequences for those who are charged with low-level offenses and wish to resolve their case quickly. You should not plead guilty without first consulting an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, the court will appoint one for you. Just be aware that sometimes the option that seems most expedient may end up causing more problems for you further down the road. For example, if you seek to expunge this matter from your record, or the previous legal matter you spoke of in your post, you need to be aware that Oregon's expungement law (ORS 137.225) creates lengthy waiting periods for people who have multiple convictions. The consequences to a criminal charge can be long lasting. Therefore, be sure to get advice from an attorney before you decide which way to proceed.See question

I think it was a class c felony
Oregon's expungement law is found in ORS 137.225. The statute provides that many (but not all) misdemeanors and class C felonies qualify for a motion to set aside. The requirements include:
1. Compliance with all requirements of the sentence,
2. Waiting period of 3 years from the time of conviction.
3. No other convictions (except for traffic infractions) within the 10 years prior to filing the expungement motion.
4. No pending charges.
You should consult a criminal defense attorney for specifics as to your situation and guidance on the process of clearing this conviction from your record. Many defense attorneys offer a free and confidential consultation to evaluate a person's eligibility for expungement.See question

2. Confide only in your lawyer.
3. Stop posting information about your situation online.

When the police are under investigation, they get legal representation immediately and refuse to answer questions without their lawyer. They do that because they know the system is unfair to anyone who does otherwise. If that practice is good enough for the police, it is doubly good for you. Be smart. Consult an attorney immediately. Don't post anything about your case online. Stop talking to the police. They are not trying to help you.See question
I'm 16, my boyfriend is 20. I live in the state of oregon and he lives in Washington. We have had sex a handful of times. Both my parents and I consented to this. Someone reported it to dhs. The lady said she has to report it but will not pursue it.
You are underage so you cannot legally consent to sexual activity. Nor can your parents consent to you having sex. Oregon law enforcement agencies prosecute cases like this very aggressively. You and your boyfriend need to consult attorneys immediately.See question
