Understanding Measure 11 Charges and Sex Crimes in Oregon

Mandatory minimum sentences have given enormous power to unelected deputy prosecutors. By choosing the charges and running the grand jury, they have the ability to take sentencing decisions out of the hands of the judge or factual decisions from the jury.

Our Eugene criminal defense attorneys will aggressively defend you from all Measure 11 charges and sex crime offenses. Our lawyers will work to avoid conviction and the mandatory prison sentence, which can range anywhere from 5 years to 25 years. We represent clients facing all types of Measure 11 crimes, including:


  • »Rape, including date rape and statutory rape
  • »Sexual assault
  • »Child abuse and molestation
  • »Child pornography
  • »Murder and manslaughter
  • »Assault
  • »Kidnapping
