Oregon Measure 11 Crime Seriousness

Oregon Measure 11 offenses are the most serious felonies. The distinguishing feature of Measure 11 offenses is that they are punishable by a mandatory minimum prison sentence of between 70 and 300 months. Unlike many states which have lengthy prison sentences that are never really served, defendants convicted of Oregon Measure 11 offenses are almost always required to serve every day of the sentence and there is no reduction for “good time” or “good behavior.”
