DUII Arrests May Soon Be Expungible

Current law does not allow traffic arrests to be expunged like other crimes. However, a new bill that just passed the Oregon House may change that. This will protect those clients who were wrongfully arrested when no charges were filed, the case was dismissed, or a jury acquitted them at trial.

Under current law, the arrest shows up on a driving record and has hampered many people from jobs where driving is a requirement.
