If someone violates his or her parole or probation order as well any restraining orders, a peace officer may take them into custody.

Any federal law enforcement agent may even conduct an arrest. Any private person has the right to arrest someone when they witness a crime being committed or they have cause to believe the person committed a crime.

How Long Will an Arrest Report Stay on your Oregon State Records?

Arrests and other criminal convictions will stay on an Oregon record forever if the person does nothing. However, they have the option of requesting a “set aside” which is Oregon’s version of expungement. Arrests, where they were never charged or convicted, can be set aside. Convictions for minor felonies and misdemeanors can also be set aside. Offenders must first wait a specific amount of time after sentencing to apply. They can also request to have their serious felonies downgraded to misdemeanors.

Can you Expunge your Records?

People with criminal records are allowed to apply for a “set aside” which is the same as sealing of their records. There are quite a few rules and stipulations someone must comply with when requesting a set-aside. They can also ask to have their serious felonies be downgraded to misdemeanors, making them easier to get sealed and off the record. Arrests that did not result in charges or a conviction are easier to get removed than convictions. If someone committed a felony, the law does permit them to request restoration of their right to own firearms.
