A friend is trying to have Assault 4 and Reckless Endangerment charges Expunged permanently from her record. This will allow her to be more employeable if these things don't show up on background checks. Her first DUII was March 2005 with the ab...
If I understand your email correctly, she also has a DUII conviction from 2008. The prohibits her from having anything expunged until 10 years from the date of the most recent conviction. So she would not yet be eligible for expungement.
As you know, the DUII charges are not eligible for expungement under current Oregon law. But, she may petition the court to have the other charges expunged once she becomes eligible in 2018.
She should also know that the DA will notify the victim of the Assault charge. If the victim objects to the expungement or wishes to be heard, then the court will set a hearing on the matter. In my opinion it would be worth the money to have an attorney work with her on this.
My friend was arrested for DUI on a parking lot of a motel. The arresting officers did not see him driving and did not see him even in the car as he had been on the parking lot for a while before the officers arrived. He was arrested based on a 91...
You and your friend should not discuss with facts of this incident with anyone other than his lawyer. You should absolutely not post details in online forums such as this. Your friend should hire an attorney before court if possible. Your friend's lawyer will then get the police reports and talk with your friend about his options and the likelihood of winning at trial.
And remember: your friend only has 10 days from the arrest to request a DMV hearing on his ODL suspension. His lawyer can request this for him.See question
I want to move from wasco county oregon to easton washington
If you are on formal supervised probation, you will most likely need to go through the interstate compact agreement. This means that the receiving state (Washington) needs to agree to supervise you. Talk with your probation officer about this process.
If you are on bench probation, contact the sentencing judge and provide them with your new address. Remember: one of the conditions of probation is to always keep the court informed of your current address.See question
On June 6 2013 I was convicted of domestic violence against my ex boyfriend. it originally started out as a felony but was dropped to misnomer Assault 4, not sure what class. but I was wondering how long I needed to wait to get this expunged from ...
Assuming you completed the conditions of probation and do not have any other convictions within the past ten years, then you would now be eligible to petition for expungement. In cases like yours, the District Attorney is required by the victims rights laws to notify the victim in the case (your ex-boyfriend) that you are seeking an expungement. While I have not had any problems getting these types of cases expunged, you should know that if he objects to your expungement, the court may set a hearing.See question
if i have no record but i just got my first charge and have a warrant for my arrest the police found in my car a cotton with heroin residue on it a cooker and a saringe in my car my question is for one if it wasnt my paraphonilia it was the passen...
Generally, a charge like this in Portland would result in a book & release. However, you should really talk in person with your lawyer about your specific situation.
Turning yourself in on a warrant is always better than being arrested by police. If, after you turn yourself in, you are not released with a date to return to court, then you would see the judge on the following court day. The judge would then consider release options. Good luck.
I wrote checks using a closed checking account and I'm worried about being prosecuted by the bank
You should not post any details about the incident in any online forums such as this, as prosecutors can use these statements as evidence against you. Do not discuss the incident with anyone other than your lawyer. You should not discuss this or answer questions.from police or bank representatives without your lawyer present. Your lawyer can explain the potential charges to you and how the prosecutor might prove those charges. In my opinion, it is better to have a lawyer ready to defend you before the charges are filed. I wish you luck.See question
I was consuming alcohol while taking sleeping pills an officer found me and now the judge wants to see me ..i am on probation to the court
The judge could revoke your probation and sentence you to jail, or the judge could continue your probation and sanction you. The sanction could include for example: jail, community service, additional treatment. I urge you to have an attorney with you at your probation violation hearing.See question
I forged an evaluation letter and presented it to a third party so they can pay my tuition. Now the third party tried to make sure that the document I presented was actually written by the university. The next day, I received an email from the uni...
yes, you could be prosecuted, and the university may decide to take disciplinary action against you. I urge you to consult with an attorney experienced in both criminal defense and university disciplinary proceedings. You have likely received or will soon receive correspondence from the university discussing the disciplinary process and setting your matter for a hearing; you should have an attorney with you throughout this process.. The goal is to keep you out of jail and in college.See question
I am applying at Rite Aid . I have been clean and sober for a little over 9 years. My two seperate charges are from almost 10 years ago. Can Rite Aid go back that far? If so , how long do they stay on my record?
Yes, these will show up on your criminal history check and will stay on your record until you take action to have them expunged. The dates you will be eligible to have these expunged depend upon each case's conviction date. The quick answer is 10 years, but I urge you to discuss the specifics of your situation with an expungement lawyer. Most offer free initial consultations.See question
I got caught with a gun when I turned 18 and got a conviction for possession of a firearm but this is my only felony
Assuming at least three years have passed since the conviction, you have no other convictions (including misdemeanor convictions), you successfully completed the conditions of your probation, and there are no cases pending against you then this case should be eligible for expungement. Once it is expunged, you may legally own a firearm. I urge you to talk with an attorney experienced in expungement law. If your case doesn't yet qualify for expungement, then you may be able to petition the court for restoration of your gun rights or obtain an amended judgement reducing the felony to a misdemeanor.See question
