Understanding Measure 11 Charges and Sex Crimes in Oregon

Since there are mandatory minimum sentences for crimes that fall under the category of Measure 11, these statutes have given enormous power to the unelected deputy prosecutors. Deputy prosecutors posses the power to change the sentencing decisions from the judge and factual decisions from the jury by choosing the charges and running the grand jury. This often hamstrings defending a case due to the enormous risk of going to trial.
