Overview Description

Records relating to a charge, allegation, or adjudication for prostitution will be expunged if the person was under 18 years of age at the time of the incident. Or. Rev. Stat. § 419A.262(3).

Ineligible Category or Citation

To be eligible for expunction under this provision, the offense must be based on conduct that, if committed by an adult, would constitute prostitution under section 167.007, and the person must have been under 18 at the time. Or. Rev. Stat. § 419A.260(3)(A), (B).

Procedure General

The petition must be filed in the county where the person resided at the time of the most recent termination. Or. Rev. Stat. § 419A.262(1). For the specific procedure, see Or. Rev. Stat. § 419A.262.


There is no statutory language regarding fees.


Upon the entry of an expungement judgment, the incident that is the subject of the expunged record will not be disclosed by any agency. An agency that is subject to an expungement judgment will respond to any inquiry about the contact by indicating that no record or reference concerning the contact exists. Or. Rev. Stat. § 419A.262(21).

A person who is the subject of a record that has been expunged under this section may assert that the record never existed and that the contact, which was the subject of the record, never occurred without incurring a penalty for perjury or false swearing under the laws of this state. Or. Rev. Stat. § 419A.262(22).

Waiting Periods

The petition can be filed at any time following the adjudication.
