How Long do Felony or Misdemeanor Charges Last?
Oregon allows you to have your arrests and not guilty charges “set aside” which is like sealing so they will no longer be accessible on your record. For most misdemeanors, and some lesser felonies, the state also allows you to petition the court to expunge the information from your record. When you were arrested but not charged, there is no waiting period. In other cases where you were convicted, you must wait at least three years. Some felonies like sex offenses will never be removed from your record.
