Why do I need to Provide a Fingerprint Card with my Motion to Set Aside?

Every motion to set aside in Oregon must be accompanied by an FBI-standard fingerprint card. This applies to set asides for arrests as well, not just convictions. This part of the process can seem invasive, especially given that for many crimes people were never even fingerprinted in the first place. However, the purpose of the fingerprint card is not to put your prints into a database (though that probably does happen). The fingerprint card is for the FBI nationwide background check that must be conducted in conjunction with the motion to set aside.
