Setting Aside Arrest and/or Conviction

Oregon Revised Statute ORS 137.225 allows some types of records to be erased from a person’s Computerized Criminal History (CCH).  You are encouraged to read this statute to help you decide if you qualify to have an item taken off your record.  A link to the Oregon Revised Statutes is available on the District Attorney home page.  Forms and general instructions are below.  Please note that arrests and/or convictions for traffic offenses are not able to be set aside, even if no charge was ever filed against you, the charges were dismissed, or you were acquitted of the charge.
