Clackamas County Arrest Records

Clackamas County arrest records contain documented accounts of all of the times an individual has been arrested by law enforcement in the county. The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for maintaining and archiving the arrest records in the county. Clackamas County arrest records document information on the person arrested as well as the details of the arrest. Arrest records, just like criminal records and Clackamas County Court Records, are all classified as legal records.

An arrest occurs when law enforcement officers take suspected persons into custody. This is necessary when law enforcement officers such as the Sheriff's office or police departments in the county:

  • Observe a crime being committed
  • Have probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed
  • Have a warrant to carry out an arrest
  • Observe a suspect trying to flee
  • Observe people disrupting the public peace through fights, riots, and other violent behavior.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office runs the jail facility for holding arrested persons in Clackamas County, and it is the:

Clackamas County Jail

Clackamas County Arrest Records Vs. Criminal Records

Clackamas County arrest records are created by law enforcement agencies when a person is taken into custody. On the other hand, criminal records provide information on a person's criminal history and all their interaction with the criminal justice system. The significant differences between arrest records and criminal records are as follows:

Arrest Records Criminal Records
Arrest records only indicate that a person was taken into law enforcement custody and not that they have been found guilty of a crime. In some instances, charges are never filed, and the arrested person may only be questioned and released. Criminal records go beyond arrests and indicate information from the trial after the person is found guilty or pleads guilty to the charges.
Arrest records are standalone records that record the arrest, and provide information on the person arrested, time of arrest, and arresting agency. Criminal records detail the whole process and include arrest records, court records, sentencing information, pardons and expungements, and incarceration information.
When charges are filed, a conviction is not secured, and the person will not have a criminal record. When charges are filed, the person was found guilty or pled guilty and was sentenced.

How Long Do Arrests Stay on Your Record?

Arrests do not stay permanently on a person’s record in Clackamas County. Oregon Revised Statutes § 137.225 provides the time frame after which the arrest can be removed from an arrested person's record. When no charges are filed, an arrested person can apply to the court in the county of their arrest any time after 60 days for an order setting aside the arrest or charge. Persons acquitted or with dismissed cases can apply in court immediately to set aside the arrest, citation, or charge.

Expunge Clackamas County Arrest Records

Per Oregon Revised Statutes § 137.225, persons in Clackamas County who meet certain eligibility requirements can have their arrest records expunged. These include misdemeanors, many Class B felonies, Class C felonies, Class A racketeering felonies, schedule I drug possession offenses, and violations under state and local ordinances. A set aside of these charges seals the individual's record of conviction. Traffic offenses, most violent offenses, most offenses targeted the vulnerable, and most sex offenses are, however, ineligible.

With the decriminalization of recreational marijuana in Oregon in 2015, set-asides are available for convictions for marijuana offenses as all decriminalized marijuana-related offenses are classified as class C misdemeanors.

The waiting period for eligibility for setting aside convictions is as follows:

  • Class B felony: The later time between seven years from the date of conviction or release from imprisonment.
  • Class C felony: The later time between five years from the date of conviction or release from imprisonment.
  • Class A Misdemeanor: The later time between three years from the date of conviction or release from imprisonment.
  • Class B or Class C Misdemeanor: The later time between one year from the date of finding or conviction or the release from imprisonment.

To expunge the records, the victim will serve the prosecutor, through their lawyer, with a copy of the motion. The victim will be granted an opportunity to be heard in court. The prosecutor can opt to object to setting aside the records, in which case the court will hold a hearing. Setting aside the records, they will only be rejected if the court is convinced that the requester’s behavior and circumstances risk public safety.

Persons seeking to expunge records in Clackamas County can start by filling out a Motion to Set Aside an arrest or conviction using the standard legal forms purchasable at legal stationery stores. Other requirements include:

  • Case number or arrest number
