Measure 11 Crimes Attorney in Corvallis

Understanding Oregon’s Ballot Measure 11

The voting public of Oregon passed Ballot Measure 11 directing the courts to impose mandatory minimum sentences for convictions for felony person-crimes deemed to be the most serious. This means that a sentencing judge does not have the power to impose a lesser sentence than those mandated by Measure 11. Similarly, a prisoner’s sentence cannot be reduced for good behavior.

If you have been charged with a Measure 11 crime, reach out to Nash, Ortiz & Demarest, P.C. We stand ready to put our experience to work for you in Benton and Linn Counties.

What Are Measure 11 Crimes?

Crimes involving a serious physical injury to another person have the potential to be categorized as a Measure 11. Anyone facing charges that fall under the Measure 11 category is facing a potentially lengthy prison term. If you find yourself under investigation for a person crime, you should seek the advice of a Corvallis Measure 11 crimes lawyer immediately before making any statements to anyone about the situation.

Self-incriminating statements made during an investigation can be used in prosecuting the accused. As with any crime, mere statements offered into evidence can be sufficient for a conviction. Without fully understanding the nature of the allegations or understanding the circumstances under which an investigation was commenced, it would be difficult to determine what, if any, statements would be helpful or harmful.
