Measure 11 Offenses

Many violent and sex crimes in Oregon are designated as Measure 11 offenses, which means that they carry stiff mandatory minimum prison sentences and are considered the most serious crimes in the state.

Even a person with no arrests or convictions will face a minimum of 70 months in prison if charged with a Measure 11 offense.
