Your first court appearance is called an "arraignment" or "initial appearance." Usually, very little happens at the first appearance beyond formally notifying you of the charge(s) and setting a second court date.Sometimes, bail, release, or release conditions are discussed. If you are not released on your own recognizance, then you will usually have to post bail in order to be released.Age of Majority in Oregon States have their minor laws designating the "age of majority," or the age at which a citizen is considered an adult in the eyes of the law. Minors under the age of 18 still retain certain rights and responsibilities in specific circumstances.For instance, a 14-year old can consent to mental health treatment under Oregon law.
These terms refer to sex acts where the lack of consent is based solely on the age of the child victim.
The employment of minors is heavily regulated, both under Oregon and federal laws. For purposes of employment, a "minor" is anyone under the age of 18.
There are strict limitations on the number of hours a minor may work and on the types of work permissible. In general, a minor must be at least 14 years old to work in Oregon.
In addition, Oregon employers who hire minors must apply for and obtain an from the Child Labor Unit of the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI), (971) 673-0836. In rare circumstances, the Oregon Wage and Hour Commission may allow younger individuals to work. Does a minor still need a work permit in order to be employed? Prior to September 9, 1995, every minor was required to obtain an individual work permit, and each employer was also required to apply for a separate employment certificate for each minor hired. Several hazardous types of work are completely off-limits for minors.
Minors over 14 years old are now no longer required to obtain work permits, and the process for employers has also been greatly simplified. What steps must an employer take before hiring a minor? An employer must verify the age of every minor hired and must also apply each year for a single annual employment certificate. Sixteen- and 17-year-olds may work up to 44 hours per week. These include the operation of most power-driven machinery, including hoisting, woodworking and cutting/slicing equipment.
If you were arrested for a misdemeanor sex crime, you may have received a citation or release agreement directing you to appear in court at a future date.
