Expungement May Not Be the End

While the internet has many benefits, making it easy to clear your record is not one of them. Even if you get a court to order to expunge your record pursuant to ORS 137.225, it may still show up on a background check or online. Therefore, after you get an order signed, it is important to do a background search of yourself to see what still shows up. Then, when you discovery websites or organizations reporting the conviction, you can contact them to have it removed. Most of companies have an established procedure in order to do so.

That is why if you hire me to help clear your record, I will help you identify what is showing up online and help you remove the damaging information we can locate. Feel free to contact me via my contact form. You'll hear back from my office within two business days.

Changes in Oregon Expungement Law

Once again the Oregon Legislature has found fit to modify Oregon’s Expungement Statute ORS 137.225. Now, if you have been convicted of Criminal Mistreatment in the First Degree, and the victim was 65 years old at the time of the crime, you can no longer have that conviction expunged under ORS 137.225(7)(b). Clearly the legislature is trying to address what they believe is the growing danger of elder abuse.
