The Oregon Legislature has made several key changes to the expungment statute (ORS 137.225) this legislative session. Oregon Senate Bill 908 amends the current law to allow a person convicted of a felony for possession of a Schedule 1 controlled substance (i.e. Heroin, Marijuana, etc.) to expunge the record of that conviction after three years rather than 20. Recognizing that a felony conviction has many negative collateral consequences that make it more difficult to get housing and impair one’s ability to gain employment, this change will help many people who have a single conviction for a felony drug offense put that conviction behind them and move on.
