This CLE will cover relief from sex offender registration, both adult and juvenile, and expungement. Adult relief from registration is complicated, as it can be done in both the circuit courts and in the Board of Parole and post-prison supervision. Laws that have recently been implemented have opened the floodgates for tens of thousands of individuals to seek relief who never had a chance. Seeking relief in the Board of Parole and post-prison supervision will become the more common route for relief, and is based on Oregon’s new tier-system. The laws for juvenile relief remain unchanged, but there are a large number of factors that go into who is a good candidate for relief. The expungement (or set aside) law is one of the most complicated in the code, and is constantly changing. Sex crimes can be expunged only in very narrow circumstances. Mark Cogan and, Jeff Turnoy, Mark C. Cogan PC, will describe all avenues for relief from registration for both adults and juveniles, and under what circumstances a sex crime can be expunged. The presentation will also cover expungements in general for adult convictions.
