Eugene/Springfield Measure 11 Attorney

Contextual Image

Measure 11 is a ballot initiative that was approved by Oregon voters in 1994. The Measure 11 statute sets minimum mandatory sentences for certain violent crimes. If a person is convicted of a Measure 11 crime, the judge cannot impose a sentence that is more lenient than the sentence prescribed by Measure 11. Furthermore, a prisoner’s sentence cannot be reduced for good behavior.

If you have been charged with a Measure 11 crime, it is very important to consult with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. As an experienced Eugene Measure 11 lawyer, I can employ aggressive defense strategies on your behalf to help you avoid the harsh consequences of a Measure 11 crime conviction.

Oregon Measure 11 Crimes

Measure 11 takes all the discretion away from a judge in regard to imposing criminal penalties. This means that factors such as a defendant’s criminal history (or lack thereof) are not taken into account when sentencing.

In handling Measure 11 defense cases, I work proactively to get charges dropped. I attack key elements of the prosecution’s case. I challenge their evidence. If I can successfully get the case thrown out, it doesn’t matter how harsh the Measure 11 penalty is.

Depending on the circumstances, I can also negotiate with the district attorney to take the case out of Measure 11. In every case, I work aggressively to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients.

Oregon Measure 11 crimes include:

  • Arson
  • Assault I and II
  • Attempted Aggravated Murder
  • Compelling Prostitution
  • Creating Child Pornography
  • Kidnapping
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
