In Oregon, survivors of trafficking can petition to vacate a conviction for prostitution offenses that were committed “at or around the time” they were a victim of trafficking. The law is limited to state or municipal prostitution charges.
Survivors are required to wait at least 21 days after the conviction to file a motion. The motion must demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that the offenses were committed while they were a victim of sex trafficking. Upon receiving the motion, the law requires the court to hold a hearing.
