Offender Return to County of Residence


Unless the Board waives the condition, the Board shall order as a condition of parole or post-prison supervision that an offender reside for the first six months in the county where the offender resided at the time of the offense that resulted in the imprisonment.


Intentionally left blank —Ed.


The Board or the Department of Corrections may establish the county of residency by obtaining the last address of record at the time of the offense from all of the available information in the following records:


An Oregon driver’s license, regardless of its validity;


The Department of Revenue;


The Department of State Police, Bureau of Criminal Identification;


The Department of Human Resources; or


The Department of Corrections.


If the records do not disclose the county of residency, the Board or the Department shall find the offender resided in the county where she or he committed the crime.


If the offender is serving multiple sentences, the county of residence shall be determined according to the date of the last arrest resulting in a conviction.


In determining the offender’s county of residence for purposes of this rule, the Board may not consider offenses committed by the offender while the offender was incarcerated in a Department of Corrections facility.


Upon motion of the Board, an offender, a victim, or a district attorney, the Board may waive the residency requirement after finding:


The offender provided proof of a job with no set ending date in a county other than the established county of residence;


The offender poses a significant danger to the victim;


The victim or victim’s family poses a significant danger to the offender residing in the county of residence.


The offender has a spouse, registered domestic partnership, or biological or adoptive family, residing in other than the county of residence, who will be materially significant in aiding in the rehabilitation of the offender and in the success of the parole or post-prison supervision period;


The Board requires that the offender participate in a treatment program which is not available in the county of residence;


The offender desires release to another state or another state has a detainer; or


Other good cause.
