Measure 11 crimes are those that carry mandatory minimum prison sentences.  They are codified under the Oregon Statutes, chapter 137.  This unfortunate law restricts the judges’ ability to sentence certain crimes with their accustomed level of discretion.  It hampers the DA’s ability to negotiate resolution of cases, and it constrains the defense attorney’s ability to affect a sentencing outcome.  Experience with Measure 11 crimes is crucial when dealing with these cases, as there are decisions to be made that may affect the rest of one’s life.  The most important decision you can make at this point is to call the offices of Michael Kellington, Attorney at Law to set up an appointment for an initial consultation.
