You've already been arrested or convicted for a crime. At this point you have a better understanding of just how detrimental a criminal charge and conviction can be. For many people, a guilty verdict sets them back in life and can influence them for many years to come. Not only do you deal with the possible jail time and expensive fines, the effects can last for much longer.
Just when you think you've put the whole ordeal in the past, it prevents you from getting a job by showing up in a background check, or when you're getting cleared for housing.

In Oregon an expungement is referred to as "setting aside" or an "expunction." It is possible to seek this option to set aside in many instances of conviction or even arrest. This removes the information from public knowledge, meaning that it can no longer be viewed by potential employers.
It's important that you work with the guidance of a legal professional on your case. The details surround expungement can be complicated and there are guidelines on who is eligible to seek having their record cleared.
