Hi, I was charged with a misdemeanor which I declined to plea bargain down. It took 1 year 5 months to go to trial, and I was convicted. I believe it's a 3 year wait to request engagement - did the clock start on the day I was initially c...
Assuming you have only one conviction and meet the other eligibility requirements under ORS 137.225, the waiting period is 3 years from the date of conviction -not from the incident date.See question

The police reports are given to the district attorney who will review the case and decide whether to prosecute him. Even if you do not want him prosecuted, the final decision on whether and what to charge is up to the DA.See question

Assuming you completed the probation conditions, haven't been convicted of any other crime within the past ten years, haven't been arrested for any crime within the pst 3 years, and have no criminal cases pending right now then yes- the charge is eligible for expungement under ORS 137.225. I urge you to consult with an expungement attorney about your particular circumstances.See question
I am applying to work for a law enforcement agency. I had a minor misdemeanor that was expunged, do I have to report it or include it in my background check? Do I have to check the box that asks if I was ever charged or convicted of a crime? Would...
No, you do not have to check the box. In Oregon, once your record has been expunged, you may legally state that you have never been arrested or convicted of a crime. The crime is "deemed not to have occurred."
You are not lying or misleading anyone to state that you have not been arrested or convicted.
In your case, because the case was dismissed, you were never convicted of a crime to begin with. Good luck with your job search.
I understand that I must wait 10 years to apply for an expungement. With further research I might not be able to get one because in 2009 I was convicted with Misdemeanor DUI, Assualt 3, and failure to perform duties as a driver both felonies. Its ...
The law that covers felony reduction is ORS 161.705. It reads, "The court may enter judgment of conviction for a Class A misdemeanor when a person is (1) convicted of any Class C felony, (2) has successfully completed probation, and (3) the court believes it would be unduly harsh to sentence the defendant for a felony. In making this determination, the court may consider the nature and circumstances of the crime and the history and character of defendant."
So, you do not need to wait to apply for felony reduction. It's up to the judge to decide whether or not to grant the reduction. I urge you to consult with an attorney about the specifics of your case and situation.
I had a small get together at my girlfriends parents house when I was eighteen no one was home and her parents pressed charges. The felony has been expunged for three years.
A conviction which has been expunged under ORS 137.225 should not present any problems for you in terms of employment as a guard.See question
I was told by a lawyer that should not summit my criminal record with my I-485, but instead to bring it to the interview. He also told me that I only had to summit an explanation on a continuation sheet. But from my understanding from the instruct...
My understanding it that you should submit a certified copy of the record, but this is best answered by an immigration attorney, so I am reposting your question there.See question
I am 33, a Canadian citizen and a green card holder. I have lived in this country since 1999. When I was in college, I was busted for smoking pot in my dorm room with some friends. The cop only took a small (dime bag) of the pot and the parapherna...
I suggest that you obtain a copy of your Oregon State Police background report. The form is available online for you to print out. Just mail it in with a $33 check and a set of your fingerprints. This will allow you to see what, is anything, shows up on your background check.
You may want to discuss these matters with an attorney who specialized in immigration matters for another view on disclosing your police contacts. It seems to me that if you appeared in court and paid a fine, you would have been charged with a violation, in which case it would show up on a background check.See question
I'm 1995, I was convicted of welfare fraud because I misread a flyer and thought I could work part time and not report it. Now I want to be a nurse and that offense is keeping me from it. I really need to get it wiped off my record. It was in CA a...
You should work with an attorney licensed to practice in CA. Oftentimes expungement matters can be handled without a court appearance. I wish you success.See question
