Jesse Lohrke and Cheryln Prescott will discuss changes to Oregon's expungement law in 2022 with a specific emphasis on how to ensure the set aside is complete and cleared from the client's computerized criminal history.
Oregon Expungement law changed significantly when Senate Bill 397 took effect January 1, 2022. The new law reduces most set aside timelines and has a profound effect on non-person Class B felonies. Expungement of eligible Class B felony convictions is now possible after seven years.
Jesse Lohrke is an experienced Oregon attorney and former OCDLA Board Member. His practice involves providing legal advice and counsel on a wide variety of matters than include child welfare, criminal defense, rights restoration, hunting, firearms and landlord-tenant law. Jesse is a fourth generation Oregonian and a veteran of the United States Navy Submarine Service. He enjoys protecting the rights of people prosecuted by the government and helping clean up criminal records. He believes people deserve a second chance and is passionate about providing that opportunity.
