This is a big decision,a and you should absolutely talk with your lawyer before testifying before the Grand Jury. And, you should not discuss the incident with anyone other than your lawyer (this includes police, the DA, and DA investigators). Further, do not post details about the incident online.
Again, talk with your lawyer as soon as possible.See question
I would like to take my boys hunting and target practice but not sure if I can own a gun almost 10 yrs ago.
If your marijuana conviction was a felony at the time of conviction, then you may not own a firearm until you have the conviction expunged. Marijuana crimes, such as MCS (manufacture) and DVS (delivery) are now eligible for expungement under Oregon law.See question
Wanting to set a side my record from 15 years ago
Contempt of Court is a civil matter, not a criminal conviction. Therefore, it is not a bar to expungement under ORS 137.225. Some prosecutors may object to the expungement because they are not familiar with recent case law favorable to us . And prosecutors may also object on the grounds that your "circumstances and behavior" (ie: the contempt) warrant a denial of the motion to set aside.
That said, I have successfully obtained expungements for clients in several different counties. I suggest you speak with an expungement attorney about your particular situation to get a full sense of the likelihood for success.

You may want to obtain a copy of your OSP report to see if this shows up; I am inclined to think that it will show up given that you were fingerprinted. If that is the case, then you may petition to have the record expunged. However, Immigration still has access to expunged records. I urge you to consult with an immigration attorney to discuss whether and how this could impact your status.See question
I'm trying to clean my record because of immigration situations I'm concerned about?
First, you should know that expungement doesn't always work for immigration cases. I urge you to consult with an immigration attorney before having any criminal records expunged. You should also obtain certified copies of all court records before having the cases expunged, as immigration will want to review these (and once the record is expunged, you can't get copies without petitioning the court to reopen the file).
Second, DUII cases are not eligible for expungement unless you were either acquitted at trial or the prosecutor didn't file the charge against you; DUII convictions and diversion dismissals are not eligible for expungement.

Commited a burg 1 back in 2007 and would like to try and get it pardoned by the governor of Oregon along with the rest of my Class C felonies and multiple misdemeanors.
First, a governor's pardon is only available for cases that aren't covered by ORS 137.225 0 Oregon's expungement statute. So, you would need to go through the expungement process for your C felonies and misdemeanors.
As for the pardon, you may request a "pardon packet" from the Oregon Governor's office. When you receive it, fill it out and follow the instructions included in the packet. There is no fee to request a pardon, and if you are denied you may always reapply at a later time. Good luck.See question
