Corvallis Measure 11 Crimes Lawyer

What Are Measure 11 Crimes in Oregon?

Ballot Measure 11 is an Oregon law that went into effect in 1995 (reaffirmed in 2000) directing the courts to impose mandatory minimum sentences for those convicted of serious felony crimes. Judges are restricted from granting lesser sentences reducing sentences due to good behavior.

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

Crimes and penalties that fall under measure 11 include:

  • Arson - Up to 7.5 years
  • Assault - Up to 7.5 Years
  • Robbery - Up to 7.5 years
  • Attempted Murder - Up to 10 Years
  • Manslaughter - Up to 10 Years
  • Kidnapping - Up to 25 Years
  • Murder - Up to 25 Years
  • Rape - Up to 25 Years
  • Sodomy or Unlawful Sexual Penetration - Up to 25 Years
  • Using Children in Sexually Explicit Ways - 5 Years & 10 Months
  • Compelling Prostitution - 5 Years & 10 Months
  • Sexual Abuse - 6 Years & 3 Months

*Note - There are different levels to these crimes that could result in lesser sentences.*

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.
