Measure 11 Crimes We Will Fight for You

Portland Measure 11 Criminal Defense Attorney

Understanding Oregon’s Minimum Sentencing Laws

In 1994, Oregon established an initiative to require mandatory minimum sentencing for those convicted of certain crimes without the possibility of reduced sentencing or early release, even for good behavior. Known as Measure 11, this law went even further by requiring that juveniles over the age of 15 be tried as an adult for these crimes.

At the Law Office of Robert R. Cleland, we know that being brought in front of a judge should not define a person, and our Portland Measure 11 defense lawyer is committed to zealous advocacy for clients accused of these crimes. Since these are some of the most serious offenses to come before a court, no fight to defend your rights is too aggressive.
