If there are criminal charges, we will not be able to release the report until the subject has gone to court and the case has been closed or adjudicated.  The State of Oregon Department of Human Services is the authority that may release records of child abuse pursuant to Oregon Revised Statutes 419B.035 (if the reports are subject to disclosure). In some cases, a court order or subpoena is required for the disclosure of records.
