What appears on your record? If the charges were dismissed, the the arrest may be dismissed. If you were convicted, there will be no expungement.

Were you actually convicted? If so, it will be a lot harder to clear this from your record than if you were merely charged. If you were convicted, an expungement will almost certainly require the consent of the prosecutor's office who convicted you.

In Oregon a record can be 'set aside' pursuant to statute. Once a conviction has been 'set aside', for purposes of the law it is deemed to not have occurred. Only some crimes are eligible for expungement, and there are complex time limitations. Talk with a knowledgeable Expungement Lawyer in Oregon with additional questions specific to your case regarding eligability or time limitations.
